The process

The first and foremost process we follow is arguably the most important: we only accept those assignments that we believe we are qualified to undertake successfully. The second is that before we suggest a short list of candidates, we meet everyone to ascertain their skills, abilities and personality. All candidates are thoroughly briefed about new opportunities and their permission is always sought before we pass on their CV. Immediately available candidates are also fully referenced for five years and their legal eligibility to work in the UK is checked. We have the ability to run large scale assessment and testing centres of required.

The two main methods of recruitment we adopt are contingency and search.


Once a client has alerted us to a vacancy, we search our candidate database against these specific requirements and produce a shortlist. Possible candidates are immediately contacted to ascertain their availability and interest. Our candidate database is extensive. Many of our candidates choose us to represent them because they have been recommended by friends or ex-colleagues. Other job seekers find us thanks to our innovative online and offline advertising and marketing initiatives.


Our service can be provided on a retained basis for those clients wishing to ensure our search is conducted exclusively on behalf of their specific recruitment need. With the limited supply of specialist change finance and banking professionals, competition to secure their employment is intense and so the option to retain our services can prove a very attractive proposition.

With our experienced team of consultants we are able to define target clients from where we will headhunt the appropriate candidate for your role. Alternatively, we are able to advise on target media and manage the campaign from the production of the advertising to response screening and shortlist.
