The Nigerian branch was opened in 2021. The team is led by Vera Ugwo; the International Development Manager and we currently have a staff strength of 6 experienced professionals. Having completed her Master’s degree from the UK at the University of East Anglia, Vera Ugwo is in a strong position to not only guide the team but also provide in-depth support to our clients. Her lived experience as an international student is an asset and has substantially expanded our operations in Nigeria.

All our team members are well trained and continually engage in learning and development as part of their roles; keeping them informed of the industry. They will provide you with one-to-one support and guidance and ensure you feel supported.
