Managing Consultant
Supply Chain & Procurement
Office: Newcastle upon Tyne

Peter is part of the regional leadership team at Nigel Wright and specialises in the recruitment of senior professionals within the Supply Chain, Procurement, Manufacturing and Engineering disciplines.

Peter joined Nigel Wright Recruitment in 2006 after spending several years working in supply chain management within the consumer goods sector. With his industry experience, Peter has real-life experience of the roles for which he recruits, meaning that he can offer a highly consultative and personalised approach to each new assignment or candidate registration.

In 2011, Peter established a dedicated Supply Chain & Procurement team within Nigel Wright, realising its emergence as a discipline and the opportunity to offer some real recruitment specialism within the discipline. Nigel Wright has the largest, dedicated, team of Consultants to the Supply Chain & Procurement discipline based within the North East and, as such, they have worked with a wide and varied range of clients and candidates and offer a real value-add recruitment solution to employers and employees alike.

  • I found my Nigel Wright contact (Peter) to be extremely professional and helpful during my search for a new role following redundancy. I was well informed of opportunities linked specifically to my skill set, but also which met my own work / life balance needs and location requirements. Nigel Wright worked extremely hard to ensure I was in the right interviews, at a pivotal time in my career, and ultimately through them, I was successful in my endeavour to find new work. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for me personally, and I would have no concern recommending their service to others.

  • I was met with a friendly greeting from reception and then a productive meeting with two consultants who provided a detailed insight into Nigel Wright Group and discussed my experiences and potential opportunities moving forward. Looking forward to working with Peter and the team and hopefully being successful in attaining a new opportunity.

    Candidate

  • After an interview, the most important thing for candidates is to get feedback from the client. Or at least be kept informed about what's going on. My contact at Nigel Wright, Peter Stephenson, did that very well and more.

  • I thought the communication level was good, both via email and personal phone call. I was given plenty of detail about the job and a heads-up as to what the company was looking for from candidates. Once I had the interview, Peter was in touch again to ask how the interview went, and he did his best to get feedback.

    Candidate

  • Early impressions are positive, they take the time to talk to you and discuss your CV and skill-set and show clear understanding of the kinds of role you are looking for. They also offer alternative roles that they believe may be of interest to you based on this discussion. Very professional.

    Candidate

  • I have linked up with recruitment specialist, Peter Stephenson, several times now and have always found his professionalism and level of support second to none. He always shows a great understanding of the role, an appreciation of the employer’s needs, knowledge of my skills and when combined with his experience of the supply chain profession, this results in the proverbial win-win for both client and recruiter.

    Candidate

  • Full professional service. They look for more than qualifications and spend time working with you to ensure you’re matched to the right role and company.

    Candidate

  • I was introduced to Nigel Wright as part of a redundancy process that I went through nearly 10 years ago; luckily, I was supported by Peter Stephenson. His knowledge and experience have been pivotal in helping make life choices. And even when I moved to my last job through another agency, simply because they were leading the recruitment, Peter has remained in close contact and I continue to reach out for advice and support, and we stay in touch.
