David Perry - Partner

David Perry - Partner - ScotworkDavid studied Economics, Sociology and Production Management before working in the manufacturing sector (print, plastics and packaging) for a blue chip sector leader.  He has 15 years experience of HR/ER/IR management at factory, corporate and later industry wide when David chaired a number of regional, sector specific and national IR committees through a period of intense industrial, social and regulatory change and was able to widen his experience through secondment to a variety of national organisations.

He then set up his own executive recruitment consultancy for 11 successful years before joining Scotwork. He has experienced the full relationship cycle with Scotwork - first an early 80's course participant, then a client, then as an associate, full time consultant and since 2005 a Partner.

Working with a wide range of clients in UK and around the world David is now a specialist who has evolved into a generalist negotiating consultant.  Currently working on tactics and stratagems to cope with bullying behaviour by buyers, trades union, "rogue elephant" suppliers and similar negotiating personalities - all focussed on achieving sustainable and sensible "change in a changing world".

David has a wicked sense of humour and plays golf; he needs the former for the latter.
