We specialise in the recruitment of managers and leaders across the value chain in:

We couldn’t put it better than one of our happy clients who said, ‘[JSD] fit round pegs into round holes, not in terms of CV only, but more particularly in terms of attitude and approach.’ Our impressive track record speaks for itself and ensures that the clients we work with come back to us again and again.

"JSD Consulting has the ability to really understand a business and the people who work there. They fit round pegs into round holes, not in terms of cv only, but more particularly in terms of attitude and approach. They help us to answer the question: What’s this person really like? "
"In 2007 I asked JSD Consulting to tackle a recruitment project on behalf of my business […] The project was a great success and the individual we recruited is now a Director of the business. Our relationship with JSD Consulting has gone from strength to strength […] We will certainly be continuing to use them for our recruitment needs as they expand."
"I have always found Jenny to be an excellent recruiter taking the time to get to know the business and context within which she’s recruiting and then ensuring a good match with prospective candidates. I have found her to be the most thorough recruiter on the occasions that I have used JSD and would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone looking to recruit senior roles within the food industry."
"Jenny Fox contacted me whilst I was working in a senior role for a leading manufacturing company. I was not looking for a change in my career, but the initial contact with Jenny certainly planted the seed that the assignment she discussed with me, was too good to miss...resulting in me contacting Jenny again two days later to discuss further!
Throughout the whole process my contact with Jenny and staff at JSD was very professional, polite and personable.
I was kept fully briefed of progress throughout the recruitment process, and the timing of the events and appointments could not have been better managed. Even after accepting the offer and having a lengthy six-month notice period, the communication still continued with the same support.
Highly recommended. "
