The PSD Group was founded in 1991 through the acquisition and integration of a number of specialist recruitment consultancies.


Since floating on the London Stock Exchange in 1997, the group has continued to grow both organically and through further acquisitions. Following a management buyout in 2010, PSD is now a private business with 51% owned by our employees.
