Finding high level banking and finance staff is no simple task. Lack of candidates is rarely the problem: any advertisement looking to recruit a senior banking and finance executive is sure to receive a flurry of responses.
Unfortunately, however, the process of sorting through a mountain of CVs to fill a skilled executive position is not only a significant logistical challenge, but often will not result in a satisfactory candidate shortlist. This is especially the case in such a vital economic sector as banking and finance, where an executive is likely to bear huge responsibilities.
Using the skills and knowledge of a recruitment agency is tried and tested as the best way to fill the most senior positions in the banking and finance industries. A recruitment agency can actively search for personnel with the particular skills and experience required for a senior role. If required, the recruitment agency can specifically target a very narrow skill set. Equally important for many banking and finance firms, an agency can screen all unsuitable applicants – leaving the potential employer with only the most suitable applicants.
Specialist knowledge is crucial: it is vital that firms involved in banking and finance choose a specialist executive selection agency which understands the demands of the sector.
