I was very impressed with the amazing results of the search which lead to three exceptional clients.


Collaboration from beginning to end was professional and reliable as well as pleasant and congenial. Timely response and engaged commitment made it delight to work with The PIE team. The PIE’s in-depth knowledge really helped to get us the right people.

Frank J. Merendino, Director, Business Development and Partnerships, North America - INTO University Partnerships


Their network and reach was impressive across both regions and was far beyond what we could do in-house.


We worked with The PIE to recruit new senior manager roles within our recruitment team to be based offshore in the US and Europe. They were fantastic at sourcing high-quality candidates and provided a short-list of extremely well-matched applicants. Their recruitment support allowed us to focus on our core business - their network and reach was impressive across both regions and was far beyond what we could do in-house. I would highly recommend their services to other universities and international education organisations looking to expand their international teams.

I can’t thank PIE Talent enough for finding us a needle in a haystack, without compromise..


We were looking for an experienced expat to relocate to New Delhi, India to run our local higher education operations team and who had both an institutional and corporate background of the US and UK as well as India and other geographies. What seemed like an impossible task at the outset soon became a reality as PIE Talent presented us a shortlisted of qualified and genuinely excited candidates for the role. I can’t thank PIE Talent enough for finding us a needle in a haystack, without compromise.
