Further to our focus on attracting Graduates to join Brewster Partners as part of our Brewster Academy training initiative, we are taking a look at some of the Unique Perspectives of ex-graduates who are currently forging a career with us.

Specialism: Professional & Technical Support Recruitment

Position: Client Director


Commented Pete:
My degree was quite specialist and not something I wanted to pursue a career related to. Following graduation and working in a wider sales based role for two years, I was approached about a career in recruitment. I was told it was hard work but very rewarding and you get out what you put in. 12 years on and this description very much still holds true.

If you want an easy life and you aren’t particular career driven, recruitment will not be for you. However, if you want to work hard, enjoy the rewards and work your way up within a challenging but expanding industry, I would definitely recommend looking more closely into a career in recruitment.
