Our clients say

psd provided an excellent service and a shortlist of good quality candidates very quickly. psd has also proven to be very effective in helping to recruit a new Finance Director recently, again acting very professionally and providing a list of high calibre candidates from which a preferred candidate has been selected, offered and accepted

MD, Taylor Wimpey North West

psd sourced high calibre candidates and was very helpful in hosting the first interviews at their offices in Manchester due to the sensitive nature of the assignment. Helped keep up the pace of the process by quickly arranging the second interview and communicating clearly and frequently through the final negotiation process. I am very happy with the service and efficiency in helping us recruit a high quality Finance Manager.

Finance Director, Norland Managed Services

Thank you for your hard work and the professional service that you provided for the two Head of Finance positions. Both candidates are adding real value to the organisation.

Group Finance Director, McLaren Group

Thank you for your help in sourcing a suitable candidate. Peter Hardy was instrumental in getting our new Head of Finance & Debt. He is a first-class consultant.

Thank you for your help with many differing searches for our private equity and build-to-rent businesses. Peter Hardy has been a great partner to the business for many years.

Having worked together for many years in terms of hiring through or being placed by Peter Hardy, our understanding about the way I work and what matters to me places psd at a distinct advantage over alternative recruiters, and the service this time was as personalised and comprehensive as usual. The challenges around communication from the hiring party led to some frustrations and an elongated process, but you dealt with those professionally. I would of course recommend psd to my network and will continue to use you as recruiter of choice, particularly for finance roles.
