“I have used Phipps Cameron twice to recruit senior staff for my Corporate Development teams in both my current and previous roles. They understand the space and the candidate landscape, listened to my specific requirements and delivered accordingly. I would use PCR again and am happy to recommend them as a knowledgeable corporate development recruitment specialist.”

Global Head of Corporate Development | Global Business

“PCR placed me in my current role: Head of EMEA M&A for a global business. Unlike other agencies I’ve had contact with in the past, they ensured the process was not only painless but actually enjoyable. They are extremely personal and honest; it is a very boutique experience. From a candidate point of view, they have excellent expertise within the M&A space; they are knowledgeable and up-to-date on the market. They listened to the types of businesses I wanted to work for and took a lot of time out to fulfil the requirements asked. From a client point of view I have recently used PCR to hire my M&A manager. Their market knowledge, networks and embedded relationships are extremely strong, allowing the process to be quick, straightforward and efficient. As a result, we have an excellent addition to our team. I now have an established, symbiotic relationship with PCR. I would absolutely use them again and continue to recommend them highly.”

Head of EMEA M&A | Global Business

“PCR is an exceptional recruitment agency that I feel lucky to have received help and advice from. They is very passionate and knowledgeable about the clients and industries that they recruits for. Importantly, I feel that PCR puts a lot of effort into their correspondence with me. They took a real interest in my career to date, and my future goals. PCR then followed this up by setting out an opportunity that exactly suited my CV and my career goals. Prior to attending interviews, PCR went to great lengths to ensure I was properly prepared. They gave me useful information about the interviewers that I would be meeting, about the company I was applying for, and about interview techniques in general. As a result of PCR approach, I felt very well prepared and confident prior to the interviews – I really appreciated his advice. I would certainly recommend PCR to those interested in positions in the technology and telecom’s sectors. I look forward to staying in touch with the consultants in the future as my career progresses.”
