Howard-Jones - Commercial Development & Construction, UK
I joined PSD early 2010. At PSD there is a genuine career path, achievable
targets and recognition for succeeding. Couple this with a true collegiate
atmosphere and you create an engaged workforce where consultants are able to
succeed and enjoy working together to achieve their client's goals. Since
joining I have been promoted twice and now manage a small team.
Davies - Hotel Sales & Marketing
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 communicated and
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.
Juliet Hardingham - Consultant at
As a woman in business with two young children, I have had a very meaningful
career so far, based on working in a very supportive environment that
recognises and rewards your efforts. The business encourages staff to
think/take ownership of their business and rewards success in many different
ways. The group has enabled me to continue my career goals and I have recently
moved to Hoggett Bowers, our group's Executive and Board level search business
within the International Services practice.
