In 2016 Peter decided to leave the globe-trotting behind and settle in to work in the UK.
He initially started working with the local council to get the experience of a normal routine working in a normal job. Although this was an enjoyable job it just wasn’t challenging enough for him. An opportunity arose with Guardian Environmental who at the time where a newly established company who 'in his view' where fresh & vibrant with clear ambitions and goals.
After an initial interview and being able to speak openly with the company director Guy Sotheran, who explained how he aims to run the company and how the various career ladders can be climbed for the right person with the right attitude, Peter applied to get on board with Guardian Environmental.
"What do you think of you move to Guardian Environmental Peter?"
"It's something new for me, challenging getting new clients on board, but Guy and the whole Guardian team are all pushing in the same direction and have a similar work ethic to myself."
