Speaking about the Great Place to Work recognition, Clune Technology Group’s Founder and CEO, Terry Clune, said:

“To be named as a Great Place to Work for six consecutive years is a tremendous achievement. At Clune Technology Group, we’re dedicated to creating the best possible working environment for our people and while we believe that there’s always room for improvement, this accreditation is a welcome reminder that we’re going in the right direction.”

Speaking in relation to acquiring Gradguide, Terry added, “It’s free for both graduates & mentors, while employers pay an annual fee. Two of our Group companies, Transfermate and Immedis already use Gradguide to recruit graduates, and our experience has been brilliant.”
