Talent pool and employer branding solutions enhance our recruitment efforts

Recruiting professionals in the financial services sector isn’t easy and often creative methods are required to identify and attract talent. As well as delivering traditional search mandates, we also offer talent pool solutions that help financial services clients build a database of potential candidates to target for future roles. This approach also allows firms to futureproof workforce capability.

Given the heightened competition for financial services talent, we also offer employer branding solutions to raise awareness of our client’s stories and ambitions, as well as promote factors such as hybrid working and remote working opportunities that are popular in the sector today. Our promotional services include candidate packs, career sites, and social media recruitment campaigns.
