Financial Services

The Financial Services industry is one of the most global of business sectors and the skills it seeks are amongst the most specialised.

Overview

For 30 years, our financial services practice has successfully placed candidates across the sector, on a national and global basis and our clients have ranged from FTSE 10 companies to leading Asian, US and European businesses. We can separate mere reputation from proven performance to provide companies with the talent they need in this ever-evolving world. Our consulting team has the expertise, industry contacts, client knowledge and credibility expected by top-tiered financial organisations, and have completed multiple searches from senior executive to C-suite roles. We offer outstanding research capability and deep functional expertise, supported by an ability to persuade people to take on often tough challenges or to move to far flung parts of the world.
