We Build Lasting Relationships With Businesses

You want quality introductions? The right skills, plus a culture fit? We understand. If you take your recruitment seriously we’ll work well together. 

Not generic recruiters and not pricey search consultants. Peachy will bend over backward to help digital businesses and start-ups thrive. That means flexible rates and payment terms together with genuine business and sector advice. Real added value from a proper growth partner. 

Word to the wise: We don’t tend to work with bums on seat organisations or to 90-day payment terms, we prefer to work with organisations that value their teams and our services. 

Peachy is a small recruitment agency that punches above its weight.  One foot in the Cotswolds and the other in London, we help outstanding people and organisations grow across the UK.

Owner and founder Ian Johnston has enjoyed a successful career in IT, Digital technology, Design, Branding and Marketing. Not only in the field of recruitment but as a creative agency partner and IT consultancy business director.  His knowledge is more than skin deep so he’ll understand the tech you’re using or have an eye for the digital architect or designer your need. Not the usual recruiter DNA.

Peachy has consulted both SMEs and FTSE 100 companies regarding internal recruitment processes and employer branding. With a far-reaching network built up over 25 years we’ve worked with and helped countless experts to find new roles.

“We are consulting firm building a new software product. Based in Gloucs,

I really wanted the first developer we recruited to be local to us and I didn’t hold out much hope of finding someone locally.

Reached out to Ian and within a couple of days we had found a great developer who is still with us… about an hour away…. great cultural fit…really really good experience, can’t do better than that!

So I would highly recommend Ian at Peachy, definitely have a chat with him, very knowledgeable and very well connected.”
