For me, it is all about
the people I work with at PSD from my peers to all of my teams and the wider
business. Quality of what we do and strive to achieve is second to none, and
this is core to all of the fee earning staff to our fantastic support teams,

children, I have had a very meaningful career so far, based on working in a very
supportive environment that recognises and rewards your efforts and success. The
business encourages staff to think / take ownership of their business and
rewards success in many different ways, from quarterly awards, based on values,
best business referral, best executive award to celebrating team success.
Will Davies - Associate Director - Sales & Marketing Hotels -
What separates PSD from other recruiters is that they treat their
employees as individuals. Everyone's talents are recognised and valued and what
you bring to the team is welcomed and celebrated. I appreciate the open and
transparent culture here. Targets and expectations are clearly defined and
communication and moreover, I feel supported to achieve them. Also, achieving
and exceeding various targets is recognised and rewarded in a personal manner
which really makes a difference and is a great motivator.

I joined PSD as a
graduate with no prior recruitment experience, I found the support and training
from within the business very useful. It is great how the company recognise your
strengths as an individual and help you improve your areas for development
through ongoing mentoring and training, giving you the best opportunity to be
successful in your role. You are supported in reaching your targets through
one-to-one appraisals each month and are incentivised both as a team and an
individual. I feel that my experience at PSD has given a great grounding in the
recruitment world and I will continue to flourish with their guidance and
