“I was tasked with trying to find financial resource for a short-term systems migration project. We tried our own network but were unable to find a solution. Upon the recommendation of our Accountants I contacted Paul and outlined the brief to him. He took the time to fully understand our requirements and found us a local person with exactly the experience we were looking for and helped us in interview, referencing and skills testing. I would highly recommend him and found him very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with."
Tim Harding, Consultant at TPH Consulting

The first time I spoke to Paul was back in 2009 and the second time was more recently in 2021. I was quite amazed that he recognised me straight away, as it’s very common for Recruitment Consultants to speak to thousands of job seekers each year. To recognize me after 12 years was just incredible.

His ability to judge a person as to their suitability to a company and role is outstanding and I can confidently say that he is a highly valuable asset to RD Financial Recruitment. It is extremely rare to find a person of Paul’s calibre in a recruitment consultancy."
Mahendra Rathor, Management Accountant

“I have been working with Paul now for a number of years, in fact, my last 4 organisations! He is most definitely my preferred Finance Recruitment Expert; I have no hesitation in him meeting my hiring manager to understand their requirements in greater detail. The fact that he has held Senior Finance positions and has progressed down the exam route means that he really understands the career aspirations of his candidates and the business requirements of the organisation. I could not more highly recommend a Finance Recruiter and will definitely be using RD in my future recruitment needs.”
Dee Allgood, CIPD, Resourcing, and Talent Professional

"I would like to thank Jo and the rest of RD team for being there for me, every step of the way and trying your best to find a job for me. I’ve dealt with many recruiters before and your firm has definitely stood out to me. Your communication and caring nature is definitely noticeable."
Baback Zabanband, Student at Brunel University London

"I have worked with Paul over a period of years, and he has provided excellent customer service during that time. We have made many successful hires through Paul. I believe this is down to him getting to know the business and culture so he could recommend the right candidates, as well as being technically competent, that they would be the right cultural fit.”
Fiona (Jenkins) Malone, HR Trainer, and Consultant

"Paul helped me find my dream job. He really listened to what I was looking for and has placed me with a great team. I would highly recommend him, and he was also very pleasant to work with."
Shahini Vallipuram, Financial Controller

"A true business partner, Paul Ryan at RD Financial Recruitment understands our business almost as well as we do! It has been a pleasure to have a long-standing collaboration since September 2002. Paul has contributed to our business with great people recruitment, excellent advice, and competent financial support.

We are always impressed with RD and Paul’s openness to new ideas, and he has persuaded us to embrace new ways of working. This has been very successful for us.
