 Leading global recruitment firm, Robert Walters, has appointed New Zealander Shay Peters to the position of Managing Director (MD) for Australia and New Zealand. Peters was previously MD for Robert Walters New Zealand, overseeing three offices and over 100 employees. In his new role, Peters will assume full responsibility for the performance of the Australian and New Zealand businesses, which includes nine offices and over 350 staff.

Peters has extensive experience in the recruitment sector. He first started working for a competing agency in London in 2009 in the Legal team but joined Robert Walters when he moved to New Zealand and started as a consultant where he quickly made his way up through the ranks including holding positions as;  Manager of the Professional Services team,  Associate Director, Director, to NZ Director, and Managing Director NZ. 

In his time at Robert Walters New Zealand Peters has helped grow the business significantly with staff numbers more than doubling and the opening of a third office. The business is continuing to grow at a rapid rate.

Robert Walters CEO Asia Pacific, James Nicholson said; “Over the past few years, Shay and his team have led the phenomenal growth of the New Zealand business across three hugely successful offices. Shay’s innovative perspective, growth mindset and ambition to foster the very best culture are among the reasons Shay has been appointed to the role of Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand.  Huge growth opportunities exist in both markets, across all offices in what has been a hugely successful part of the wider Robert Walters Group for many years. I am confident that Shay and his experienced management team will continue to take the business to new heights”.
