Our extensive sector knowledge enables us to help our clients attract top performers in an honest and professional way whilst reducing “time to hire” periods and employee turnover. We have a passion for service and pride ourselves on being knowledgeable, approachable and a consultative approach.
The cornerstone of our business is establishing and maintaining long-term relationships with top tier financial industry professionals in all major finance hubs. Having built up numerous successful relationships spanning over a decade, we are well placed to pro-actively approach potential candidates discreetly while also understanding candidate motivations and long term ambitions. We identify high calibre candidates with extremely sought-after niche skills across a global network who may not yet have considered a career move.
We have found ‘Referred’ and ‘Passive’ candidates are particularly effective to fill mandates for niche roles, high demand skill sets and senior vacancies. While in many cases providing greater longevity than those candidates actively searching or receiving ‘cold’ approaches from an unfamiliar search and selection firms. Our experience in working on mandates globally gives us an insight into domestic and international markets and provides us with the ability to utilise a global network of candidates which is essential for clients who are seeking market leading candidates.
Our goal is to work in partnership with our clients to develop recruitment solutions as well as being a value-adding resource.
Knowledge and Consulting
A good recruiter will deliver what you have asked for, an excellent consultant will go one step further and open the door to what you may have not realised you were looking for.
In addition to successfully placing top talent with you we also act as a trusted advisor on compensation trends, optimal organisational structure and competitive landscape.
You may already have a clear idea of the type of individual you would like, but the marketplace, candidate aspirations and your budget may not realistically reflect this. We work in close partnership with clients to understand both their business and cultural needs. This knowledge enables us to challenge and assist you build a profile that meets both your constraints and business needs.
Whilst many other search firms will have competitors take a ‘reactive’ approach we often already possess these relationships, with many candidates choosing to work with us exclusively. Being the ‘first port of call’ for many candidates we are able to introduce our clients to a greater range of candidates than that offered through their own networks or other search agencies.
Regulation and Market Changes
What makes us different from our competitors is our understanding of what makes you different from yours.
Changes in the economy, tightening regulations, global demands and increasing ambiguity all affect not only recruitment but also retention of staff. Every consultant has an in depth market knowledge of the financial investment world; keeping up to date with market changes to ensure that we understand the impact on your business.
Using an entrepreneurial approach to work through these cycles, our consultants have shown the willingness to appropriately adapt to a rapidly changing work environment and as a result been able to maintain a high level of successful appointments for our clients. We are well placed to advise you on how these changes are likely to affect existing business and what steps you can take in order accurately identify and drive development to remain ahead of market competitors.
We are committed to the encouragement of diversity in the workplace therefore should you require a tailored approach to your recruitment process in order to meet this we are able to advise and assist you with no additional costs.
Loyalty and trust
We appreciate that in working with you as a recruitment partner we must do so with utmost confidentiality, finding the right balance between detail, rigour, discretion, quality of advice, speed and delivery. We take the same approach with our candidates which is why we have been able to build loyalty and trust over a number of years. When we recommend candidates we do so with first hand confidence in their abilities and credentials.
