We have been consistently impressed by the quality of candidates P&H has found. Our briefs have been highly specific, very time sensitive and focused on specialist fields in which talent is scarce and competition for candidates fierce. On all three assignments conducted to date, the P&H team has listened closely to our requirements and then been highly nimble, focused, and responsive during the search. Their knowledge of the market and commitment to building a partnership with us has taken significant stress out of the process, while the time they’ve taken to understand our culture and work environment has ensured new hires not only meet requirements but, importantly, fit well with our culture. If you are looking to quickly source highly specialised talent, I cannot recommend them highly enough.
