This is designed to give you a thorough understanding of the financial services industry and develop your skills in market research, headhunting and sophisticated sales techniques.

We don’t expect you to have previous experience in financial services, sales or business development; it’s our job to teach you everything you need to know about our industry.

  • Excellent proven written and verbal communication skills
  • Self-starter, able to work autonomously
  • A positive mind-set and belief that this leads to results
  • Ability to work in the UK


Supporting and working alongside our experienced consultants on the Wealth and Asset Management Desk, this is a varied role with the opportunity to make it your own. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Performing research into the discovery of new candidates ensuring they are correct for the desk
  • Providing support on client briefing calls and attending candidate interviews
  • Headhunting, using referrals from within our network and making direct approaches
  • Regular contact with candidates to understand their motivations, their personal strengths and job requirements
  • Creation and distribution of job advertisements using a range of online channels, including content on our website and via social media
