Financial Services

Finance, Risk, Compliance, and Investment Operations are the key areas of the Financial Services sector this team of specialists are dedicated to. We have a strong reputation going back over 50 years aiding the growth of the Financial Services sector in Scotland. We have been at the heart of many of the inward investment projects that have culminated in arguably the UK’s largest Financial Services centre outside of London. We’ve played a key role in aiding world-renowned Scottish-based organisations to grow further here in Scotland and who have also needed our help to source talent for operations across the UK and internationally. In addition, we have supported many of the inward investment projects that have seen institutions decide to call Scotland’s Financial Services community their home. We have sourced talent for new centres of excellence that these institutions have decided to locate here including Finance, Risk, Compliance, and Investment Operations.

We have one of the most experienced team of professionals anywhere in the UK who specialise in the varied and complex roles that exist within the sector. Supporting clients to source talent on a permanent, contract and temporary basis both here in the UK and elsewhere in the world.

Utilising our extensive network as well as some of the world’s leading sourcing tools and software, we can reach to both active and passive talent.

In addition to recruitment, we also act as Recruitment Outsource Partner to several clients in the sector helping them to attract new talent by improving the candidate experience, the recruitment process, time to hire and cost per hire. We also provide insight and direction on how our clients can retain their people, working with them to establish their Purpose, EVP, and retention strategies.

We pride ourselves in our approach to supporting our candidates through the recruitment processes and opportunities we present to them. We’ll be there for you at each step, offering guidance, insight, and encouragement. We’re also here to as a sounding board, even if you aren’t currently looking for a move, perhaps we can help you with your career plan and offer some independent advice on the steps you could take.

We also work with our financial services client base in other areas such as IT and Digital, Call and Contact Centres and Business Services. For more information, please see our other divisions Change Digital and Change Commercial.
