• 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
  • Replacing our retiring Finance Director of 35 years was always going to be a critically important appointment for us so we needed a recruitment partner who could grasp the personal dynamics of our Board as well as the technical skills needed for the role. MDM listened carefully to us, understood us, challenged our thinking and helped us to form a view as to the right kind of character and experience to suit our business and its plans for the future. They then delivered a first class shortlist and supported us through to the appointment of a Finance Director whom we continue to be delighted with. A fantastic customer experience!


    Mark Duerr, Managing Director F Duerr & Sons Limited
  • 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.


    James Holt, Financial Controller, BWA Water Additives
  • I needed a recruiter who would find me the best talent in the market with the minimum of fuss. MDM listened to the brief and enhanced it through their knowledge of the market, then delivered me a small handful of candidates of a consistently high calibre, all of whom were a good fit. What a luxury! We made a great appointment and MDM is a business I trust and would not hesitate to use again.


    Danielle Davies, CFO, Footasylum PLC
  • I have used MDM to recruit the key members of my finance teams in both my current and previous CFO roles. Mike and Dan have an extensive knowledge of the North West finance and business communities, having built their relationships over many years. It’s this knowledge of the market and where to find key talent that is very valuable to us as a client. They carry out thorough recruitment processes and are excellent judges of candidates’ capabilities and motivations and how they might fit into a given corporate culture. I can confidently recommend MDM based on excellent experience of using them multiple times.


    James Argyle, CFO, O'Neill Patient LLP (backed by Inflexion Private Equity Partners)
  • Manchester United have used MDM for several years, primarily to source qualified finance professionals. MDM have an established reputation in the North West finance market and are diligent and discreet in the service they provide to both clients and candidates, all of which are important to us.


    Phil Chadwick, Head of Group Reporting & Tax, Manchester United
  • 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. I used Mike in a newly qualified search, partly owing to his 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. He challenged our pre-conceptions and tailored the search to our needs. We interviewed an excellent shortlist and are very satisfied with our hire. We will be working together again in the future.


    Martyn Hawkins, Finance Director, City Football Group
  • Mike Mesrie is a rare find in recruitment: someone who can take a brief and manage the whole process with a refreshing candour and skill. No avalanche of CVs from him, just a shortlist of good prospects. A very easy recommendation.


    Steve Donaldson, Head of Portfolio, Palatine Private Equity LLP
  • 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.


    Ben Thompson, Director, DC Advisory
  • When Eric Wright Group had a requirement to make a key hire of a Group Financial Controller who had the potential to quickly step up to Group Finance Director, we wanted to work with an expert who could comb the market for the best and brightest talent. Mike ran an excellent, professional process resulting in an outstanding appointment who has quickly stepped up into the Group Finance Director role as we had hoped. We were delighted with the service Mike provided and I can provide no better testimony than the fact that we have since used him again for another senior finance role with the same success. I can strongly recommend him.


    Jeremy Hartley, CEO, Eric Wright Group
