• We instructed MDM to search for an Associate Director for our Manchester team.  MDM followed the brief with great care and dedication, and demonstrated an expert knowledge of the North West Corporate Finance market. The recruitment process was extremely efficient, with a strong short list which enabled us to fill this key position quickly.

  • MDM placed me in my current role (my 2nd move in industry from practice), which was exactly what I was looking for at that time.  They listened to the type of role/business I would be interested in and only contacted me when the right role came up.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other like-minded professionals.

  • My experience of working with MDM when looking for a new role has been fantastic. Their career planning guidance is objective and incredibly useful. Combined with their extensive knowledge of the business and financial landscape in the North West, the service that MDM provide is excellent. These guys go above and beyond and will put your career first; not many recruiters do that. On the back of my experience of working with them, I have recommended MDM to several people and will continue to do so in the future.


    Jack Clarke, Financial Reporting Manager, City Football Group
  • I was introduced to MDM over 15 years ago, when looking for a new role, and have stayed in touch ever since.  Apart from having a great knowledge of the North West market, and countless contacts, the main reason for trusting Mike and Daniel, as both a candidate and when recruiting, is their dedication to matching the right person with the right role.  You are respectfully treated as a person with a career, rather than just another CV in the pile, which is unfortunately rare in the field of recruitment.  Over the years, I have called on their advice numerous times, and I know I will always get a truthful and solid opinion.   Mike and Daniel absolutely deserve the great reputation they have!


    Andrea Hiorns, Head of Finance, Peel Land Property Group
  • After 6 months of searching for a Financial Controller through two national financial recruitment companies we had made no progress in finding a suitable candidate.

    I was then introduced to MDM and Dan and Mike got to work. Two weeks later they introduced a candidate whom they were confident had just the right mix of experience, personality and motivation for Swizzels – and we agreed! It became a very straightforward appointment once MDM were involved.

    Dan and Mike certainly know their business and I would have no hesitation in recommending them

  • Recruiting new people provides us with the best opportunity to improve our team but it is also risky, as a bad hire can have completely the opposite effect. Therefore the choice of recruitment consultant is one of our biggest decisions. We have used MDM extensively, partly owing to their intimate knowledge of the North West market, but more importantly because of the long standing relationship we have and the trust this relationship has fostered. Assignments have included a full and highly successful search for a Group Financial Controller and numerous other qualified finance roles. MDM challenged our pre-conceptions and tailored the searches to our needs. Our recruits have without exception been excellent hires. We will be working together again in the future.


    Martyn Hawkins, Finance Director, City Football Group
  • MDM recruited me into an ideal fit as Financial Controller (now Group FC) in a growing SME in my first move into industry.  They were highly professional and responsive throughout the process and would certainly recommend them.  It was clear that MDM knew their market well having been established for over 20 years, and have maintained a highly personal approach.


    Mike Balmforth, Group Financial Controller, Norkem Holdings plc
  • Mike and the team at MDM ran a professional, tailored and thorough search for our CFO.  They listened to what we need not just in terms of skills and experience but also in terms of cultural fit.  We ended up with a fantastic shortlist, each of whom was excellent in presenting on the business. We are delighted with our chosen candidate who was already fitted in well and made a big difference to our business.


    Charlie Johnstone, Co-Founder, Newlands Capital LLP - recruiting a CFO for Capsule CRM
  • We instructed MDM to recruit a Group Head of Finance for our privately owned consumer products business.  They had an excellent understanding of our business and the ideal character that would fit into our team.  Dan and Mike presented a high quality, well-matched shortlist, and we appointed a high calibre candidate.


    Stephen Cann, CEO, Bollin Group
  • Although we have tried other recruitment agencies, for qualified staff we have always completed the recruitment through MDM Resourcing for a number of years, so when we created a new role they were the obvious people to speak to. As this was a new role we didn’t even have a full job specification when I first spoke to Mike but he worked with us and helped us to come up with the role title and salary banding. However what really impressed us was the quality of the candidates he presented. He provided a shortlist of 4, any one of which we’d have taken- in fact we did consider whether we could create an extra role- they were that good. unfortunately we only had the budget for the one role we advertised but, almost a month in, the candidate is delivering exactly what we asked Mike to provide us with. As our team continues to grow, it’s great to know that I won’t have to trawl through mediocre CVs to find the best candidates as MDM do such a great job of matching candidates to roles.
