As the financial services landscape evolves, so must the advisors who work in the sector. We advise financial institutions, regulatory bodies, trade associations and consultancies globally to assist them in attracting senior leaders to executive and non-executive positions. Our clients range from some of the largest and most complex financial institutions globally, to much smaller, specialist firms, regulators, and private capital backed ventures. We regularly undertake thematic research projects and host events on topical issues such as the impact of fintech, inclusion and diversity and the changing regulatory environment.
Research is fundamental to what we do. It is the backbone of each search assignment and is central to ensuring that we consistently deliver creative and diverse outcomes that provide tangible benefits to our clients. Client’s rely on our market intelligence and trust us to be representatives of their brand.
The role will suit a flexible, hardworking, dedicated individual who demonstrates enthusiasm and a natural intellectual curiosity. We need a bright team player who will thoroughly enjoy a structured role with plenty of scope for creativity. You must be able to prioritise, be proactive, think ahead, anticipate problems and be hungry for results in a high quality, client focused business.
Ideally you will have some research experience; however we are open to individuals looking to make a lateral move into search. You will have gained post-graduate work experience in a client facing role, have excellent research skills and have a genuine interest in business and the myriad of strands that impact C-level appointments.
You will be highly articulate, analytical and professional and at the same time supremely team-oriented with a positive ‘can do’ attitude.
Key skills and experience should include a combination of:
Our environment is empowering to work in. The team is professional, organised and focused, proactive, supportive and fun.
