Managing Director - Highways UK Top 3 Contractor 

“We have worked with Alex and David over the past 3 years with great sucess and continue to do so with our Rail and Energy departments. I have no idea where or how they find these engineers! All speak at least 2 languages fluently, and have multi disciplined experience which has helped tremendously on site. We had employed over 70 engineers for our major Highway and infrastructure projects in the past few years and will continue to do so. The process is easy and the results have been fantastic. I spend an hour with a candidate, make an offer and 6 weeks later he is on site, organised and ready to work.'

Chief Executive £1 billion plus Construction Group

“We retained PRS to handle a very senior recruitment need this year.  A successful placement has been achieved and we are pleased with the professional manner in which the search was conducted and concluded”.


Chief Operating Officer £500m Plc Contractor and Service Provider

“We have been continually working with PRS since 2001.  We engage them to both organise, manage and recommend candidates we source worldwide and to handle our very senior management appointments from the UK.  We continue to be pleased with their contribution, effectiveness and performance.


Head of Contracting Services – A Major City Council

 “PRS was chosen to handle a difficult and senior management appointment within my department this year.  We are very pleased with the outcome. The assignment was conducted in a highly professional manner and I will certainly retain PRS when I next need to fill another senior position, also recommending them to other Council Departments.”


Group Managing Director – Privately Owned Specialist Contracting Group

 “PRS was referred to me by one of our non executive board members who knew them well.  We subsequently appointed them to help us find two or three senior managers to run unit businesses within the Group. We have made appointments and remain very impressed with the professional approach they took in conducting the search and the techniques used, at all times, discrete, accurate and well organised.”


Managing Director – Manufacturing Centre for an International £1 Billion turnover Group supporting their global outlets

 “David Knowles, Managing Director of PRS Executive Search was recommended to me by our Chief Executive as a result of David’s lengthy relationship providing management recruitment services to our international business.
We had been trying to fill the key senior position of Head of Engineering/Technical Director, a role reporting directly to me (and the position I held when I first joined the Company, 16 years ago). 

PRS was approached to take over the recruitment for this position and after interviewing David, we commissioned PRS to start a new search in April 2009.
The recruitment was handled efficiently and effectively at all stages of the process leading to a final interview programme which resulted in the appointment of the chosen candidate who started in the Autumn. This individual exactly fitted our requirements and is settling in well.

 I strongly recommend PRS as a professionally competent management recruitment business and on the basis of the assignment successfully concluded for us, would engage PRS again to fulfil any further recruitment services should the need arise, in preference to anyone else in the market”.


Group Human Resources Director – Major Contractor based Hong Kong

 “It helps (my having regularly worked with PRS as a client since their formation in 1989), when quality of service can be taken for granted and it is.  We are one of Hong Kong’s largest and busiest contractors building major projects in Hong Kong, Macau and the PRC mainland.  PRS has provided us with the senior management this and last year to support our growth.  Every campaign carried out to date has resulted in a successful and pleasing conclusion.  They are uniquely experienced overseas professionals with substantial knowledge of working internationally in construction.”


Main Board Director £6 Billion International Construction Group

“We have occasionally engaged PRS Selection to undertake a number of senior recruitment assignments.  As usual, these assignments have been successfully completed.  We remain impressed with the professionalism displayed and the enthusiasm shown when conducting these confidential international assignments.”


Managing Director - £2 Billion Contracting Group – Dubai

“I have worked with the PRS team for over 20 years and they have successfully recruited many senior Managers for a global leading power rental company based in Rio, Dubai ,Africa and Asia . 
Derek Shepherd  - Formerly now retired Managing Director  of Aggreko International,  Aggreko PLC Director for 12 years”


Chief Executive, £400m Plc Specialist Construction Group

 “PRS was retained twice between 2007 and 2008 to help me find two Regional Managing Directors for my businesses based in the South East and Northern England.  Both assignments were successfully concluded in a highly competent and professional manner”
