We were looking for additional office support and taking on two apprentices was seen as both an opportunity to provide jobs with an added qualification, and also a cost effective option. PDM were excellent throughout, I would certainly recommend it to any small business and our new recruits are benefiting from Government funding to the tune of around £7,000.
