“The fdu Search team’s consultative manner throughout the engagement process helped shape the brief. The team worked with me and the out going Interim CFO to lay down a clear project plan and they stuck to it. The recruitment activity was smooth, and very quickly a high class shortlist of individuals was delivered. The problem free process culminated in David Bygrave accepting the position, after an effortless negotiation made easy by fdu Search’s involvement. We got a great result which was underpinned by a supportive experience.”
