Roles We Can Source


We are regularly asked to source candidates for permanent compliance jobs. We recruit senior compliance officers, compliance monitoring officers and compliance administrators with a basic understanding of due diligence processes, such as Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering.

Investor relations

We work with hedge funds, private equity houses and investment banks to locate candidates for investor relations positions, both as standalone positions and those that are part of a larger remit.

Fund administration

We typically recruit fund administration roles for finance boutiques. These roles can sometimes contain compliance duties, so we are continually adding to our database of candidates so that we can provide support in this area.

Company secretarial

Our clients’ demands vary dramatically, so we provide a service to match. We are able to source both experienced company secretaries, and those with little experience but with legal qualifications.

We match exceptional staff with employers based on core values, in addition to skills and experience
