Why choose us?
City Wharf Recruitment, established since 2004 specialise as experts in Equities, Fixed Income and Structured Products within Front Office Recruitment. We offer a retained assignment service or contingency basis for clients within the financial markets covering sell-side and buy-side institutions.
If you are like many of the CEO’s and Global Heads in the financial markets covering Equities, Fixed Income or Structured Products we speak with daily, you are now facing several very different challenges to those in the last few decades. The financial markets are much more challenging, unpredictable and volatile, which in turn demands a lot more from our most valuable resource; people. So the pressure associated with unfilled vacancies only adds extra stress to your department; even worse is when you hire the wrong individuals. This has a very negative impact on your business, quarterly and yearly targets and objectives and moral of the team.
Many instances, you will find the specialist professionals, and critical skills you want are not always active in the market; so they won’t be applying through job boards or approaching you directly. The implications to the business can be considerable if you are unable to source and attract the best talent, which in turn affects achieving business goals and the ability to attract other key hires in the future.
Using our retained assignment method enables us to work more closely with you and on your behalf to approach the very best in your sector, by mapping the market, identifying key professionals and spending a considerable amount of time evaluating personalities, cultural fit, professional experience and skills and making sure they qualify as a perfect match for you. Please refer to our client section of the website to learn more.
