Our clients say

The process of identifying somebody that we hadn’t come across before, preparing them for interview, the interview and the process up to employment all ran very smoothly, and although it’s early days, I am convinced that in this instance psd has uncovered quite an exceptional individual for us, who fits our organisation very well.

Project Director, GVA

psd perfectly understood the type of positions and companies I was looking for, every offer sent was perfectly targeted which eventually enabled me to find a job that reunited all the criteria of what I consider a “perfect job”. psd gave me valuable advice at every step of the process. On my first day I received an email to wish me good luck, this really differs from other consultant companies I talked to. I had already found my previous job through psd and will definitely recommend it to anyone I know who is looking for a new position.

Investment Associate, Omnam Group

We have found the services received from psd to have gone above our expectations. We are a demanding client and psd has identified two strong candidates for our Commercial Director and most recently a Buyer.

COO, Henley Homes

I was impressed with the way psd handled this search. They struck a good balance between being attentive but not too pushy, and were always measured in the advice they gave.

CEO, Addington Capital

psd clearly understood the brief; kept open channels of communication with the recruiting manager and myself and liaised between the candidate and ourselves to make the deal happen. Responded well to changing goal posts and influences during the search and kept up the momentum.

Head of HR, Durkan Group

As always psd understood the brief, quickly actioned a search and as usual came up with superb candidates. It was a pleasure to work with psd on this appointment.

Managing Director, Storey Homes

The main thing that stood out for me was the number of opportunities that were available through psd. Where your competitors usually have only one opportunity to fill, I was presented with a long list. Then I could work with Christian Shawcross to select what would be a good fit for me.

psd was crucial in helping us with a strategically important role. The recruitment market is extremely tough now, and I felt it was vital to partner with an organisation that would deliver quality in this competitive market. Rob Dermott is an asset to psd, his experience and extensive network meant we could get things moving at pace without compromising on quality which led to the successful recruitment of a top candidate. I am very satisfied with the service received and would not hesitate in recommending Rob Dermott and psd.
