The division will be headed by Alison Blake, who joins from Hays in Edinburgh where she specialised in temporary/freelance recruitment in the construction sector for the last 13 years.

In her new role, she will be responsible for contract and freelance recruitment, covering professional and technical roles in construction-management, surveying, architecture, civil and structural engineering and building services.

Peace was founded in 2009 and has grown to a team of 18 consultants, and Blake described the temp market as “very buoyant” and likely to grow as a result of political uncertainty.
