Client Testimonials

I could ask anyone to match the skill set to a job brief but the real value comes from knowing our agency and understanding our culture. Fiona’s approach isn’t just about a match on paper it goes beyond that, it’s understanding what type of people will really thrive in our environment – that’s what makes the difference

Karen Perry, Deputy Managing Director WRG.

Fiona from PMP is one of those rare recruiters who actually listens to your requirements and provides the most suitable candidates to fulfil your needs. There are too made recruitment agencies that email across CVs that are wholly inappropriate — PMP is refreshingly different. Fiona has always been a joy to deal with and importantly, she delivers results.

Liz Ebbrell, PR Manager, Advanced Computer Software Group

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.

Michael Di Paola, Director, Studio North

I have always found Fiona to be on the ball in helping us to define and acquire good quality account managers, production and creative candidates for our business

Bill Daring, Managing Director, KMP Interactive Marketing & Technology

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

Mark Beaument, Director, Dinosaur

Finding good people can be difficult, but working with Fiona makes it easy, effective and even enjoyable. Quick turnarounds are often required and this is never a problem. I’m always impressed with how quickly Fiona can get good people in front of me. I don’t think there’s anyone in the North West that she doesn’t know!

Karen Todd. Client Director Canyon Associates

The Media Sector in the North is small but perfectly formed and Fiona has been consistent over the past few years in understanding instinctively what makes a good PHD North fit. She never swamps us with speculative CVs so when we receive a CV from her, we know the candidate is worth interviewing. In an industry full of sales people it is refreshing to find someone who understands us - the client, the media market,and her candidates too

Jason Spencer, Managing Director, PHD North

Fiona has her finger well and truly on the pulse of the Northern agency scene; she understands the culture of our business and doesn’t waste my time with unsuitable candidates. She’s always my first call when I’m looking to recruit.

Catherine Warrington, Managing Director, Radford Advertising

Fiona’s understanding of our business requirements has given me peace of mind and trust in her ability to find the specialist skill set that we require from candidates, and has always exceeded my expectations. The standard of service is second to none, and it is always a pleasure to enlist her help when l am looking for talented candidates.

I’ve worked with Fiona Christian for over 4 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!
