"I've known Merston Peters since my Writtle College days. In my career I have held a number of senior positions outside agriculture alongside farming in a small way myself. I've kept in contact with Martin Thorley throughout this time as it was always my expressed wish to return to a senior role in the sector.
What sets Merston Peters apart from others in the agricultural recruitment sector is their diligence in truly understanding the client brief and the merits and qualities in prospective candidates. To MP, it is not a numbers game and it really shows that they want to go the extra mile in meeting a client's objectives (even helping to frame the strategy and the realistic objectives).
I can say that I am now happily involved in the sector and this is in no small way down to the coaching and frank appraisal by Martin Thorley. I wanted to write this as in my personal experience the difference in approach compared with some other "household" names in the agricultural recruitment sector is like night and day"
