Our Expertise

A good social media presence is becoming more relevant in the Professional Service sector because it improves brand awareness, increases the Client base, boosts Client satisfaction, and creates more meaningful Client relationships. Rather than charge standard hourly rates customary of the past, value-based pricing has gained popularity as it offers a more flexible method of payment that allows consumers to feel as though they have a personal adviser. The automation of back office services is becoming important as firms eliminate paper by going electronic, reducing their operating costs and customer request service time.

fdu understands the intricacies and complexities of the Professional Services sector, providing access to top Finance professionals to help businesses navigate change and growth in their markets.

Soundbites

“Throughout the life time of the project, leading up to a successful conclusion, the fdu team was available and responsive, and drove process hard to obtain a good result for all parties. A deep knowledge of this niche market, strong relationship building, and rigorous project management make the fdu team stand out from many executive search players. I would have no hesitation recommending the fdu team when it comes to conducting critical, challenging senior level searches, and have already continued to enjoy the relationship.”
Dan Dench, Head of Recruitment, EMEA and Asia-Pacific, Navigant Consulting

“fdu are a trusted recruitment partner with whom we work collaboratively to source and deliver key hires into our Firm. As a result of this successful partnership we have been able to achieve the resourcing objectives that have helped us drive our business forward.

The London legal recruitment market is the most competitive in the country. As a previous business owner of a growing law firm and now the Chief Operating Officer of a leading multi-branch practice, I have held recruitment responsibility over a period of approximately 15 years and have dealt with lots of providers that market themselves well but simply fail to deliver. fdu, however, quickly established themselves as one of our preferred suppliers and are now the benchmark by which I measure recruitment partner performance across my business.

I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending fdu when it comes to conducting critical senior level searches, particularly for our challenging specialised and niche appointments.”
