For over 10 years Fiona at PMP has helped us in bringing in the best talent to deliver against the strategic objectives of the business. She understands our needs and the types of candidates who will fit in and make a difference.
Client Services Director, Blue Chip Marketing
No agency initially wants to pay for recruitment but if their recruiter is honest, hardworking, flexible, understands their business and adds value as Fiona does then we're more than happy.
We have developed a great relationship with PMP over several years. Fiona knows our business, and the calibre of candidate and speed of response are always very high. PMP are a valued partner.
Director, TBWA Manchester
It's no coincidence that Fiona has come up trumps more than once in our quest to find the right candidate. She really does seem 'to get' Studio North judging by the people Fiona recommends to us. But it's the positive feedback from candidates themselves that also really impresses & the genuine care Fiona seems to demonstrate on their behalf.

Director, Studio North
I have worked with Fiona for over 5 years now. Fiona is the only recruiter that I regularly speak to and is the first person I pick up the phone to when I have a vacancy. She takes time to understand the business culture and understands the candidates that will be a good fit for my team and the business. When Fiona sends me a candidate then I will most likely go with them; this saves me a lot of time looking through CV’s and filtering. Essentially Fiona does the first interview for me.
Client Services Director, Intermarketing Agency
I’ve worked with Fiona Christian for over 10 years now and would highly recommend her, not only for her knowledge of the industry, but also for her ability to judge an individual’s suitability in terms of culture and person fit. Fiona will not waste time introducing unsuitable candidates and adds significant value to the recruitment process in all the right places – a personable, professional recruiter and a pleasure to deal with!

Fiona is an excellent person to do business with. Fiona delivers! Ahead of schedule, on message and exceeds every expectation. I hope to work with Fiona again in the future, highly recommended.
Business Development Manager
Great level of service, always kept in touch and worked pro-actively on my behalf. Fiona is especially helpful and knows the Manchester market inside out! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Perfect Marketing People.
Senior Account Manager
Dealing with Fiona has been like a breath of fresh air. She is the first recruitment consultant in the last 10 years in which I've been dealing with them, both as a candidate and client, who has genuinely listened to my requirements and fulfilled the brief absolutely and rather than adopting an "any candidate, any job" philosophy so common in the industry. I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again or to recommend her to others.
Junior Account Director
I found Fiona to be extremely responsive, personable and professional. Furthermore, her pre-interview advice and support exceeded my expectations and doubtless helped me secure my role. I would highly recommend her service.
Senior Marketing Executive
When I first met Fiona I was at a bit of cross-roads in my career. I had worked in account handling in Advertising and Marketing agencies for seven years and wasn't sure which direction to go in. Unlike many other recruitment consultants I'd used, I didn't feel I was being sold jobs every time we spoke. I felt I was being given a genuine career consultancy service. The advice I received was clearly measured, considered and always concerned with trying to find the right role for me. She knew each opportunity in great detail like the nature of the corporate culture and the potential for advancement and didn't just recite the job specification and salary to me - it simply wasn't just a numbers game to her. The opportunity I eventually took was perfectly tailored to my experience and I didn't feel I was pushed out of my depth but still sufficiently challenged. In the two years since I took the role my career has advanced faster than in any previous role and has resulted in promotion. Professionally speaking I can say that my current role is the most satisfying, fulfilling and enjoyable of my career, and that this is in no small part due to Fiona's advice. Fiona's extensive experience in both the marketing industry and recruitment coupled with her fantastic network of contacts provided me with a first class service and I would recommend her services to any candidate considering their future direction.
I first met Fiona when I was looking to relocate from Birmingham to Manchester and from the outset found her professional and helpful, with a thorough understanding of what new role I was looking for within the media industry and how best to achieve it. Her approach was methodical and consistent and she kept me updated throughout the whole recruitment process. I went on a number of interviews set up by Fiona before accepting a relevant role. Since that, I have recommended Fiona to numerous colleagues and friends and will continue to do so in the future...
