Financial Services Recruitment

Despite the recent turmoil in financial markets, the financial services sector in the UK still accounts for around 10% of the country’s GDP and employs over 1 million people. Competition between leading international financial centres is fierce. As financial organisations worldwide compete for business, the ability to find and attract talent remains a key driver of success.

Banking accounts for around half of the UK’s financial services sector in terms of both GDP and employment levels. The UK’s retail banks currently operate approximately 150 million current, deposit and savings accounts for individuals and companies, worth almost £7 trillion. A number of new players, many of which are extensions of established retail brands, have seen the opportunities within this market and are entering this marketplace. At the same time, the trend towards outsourcing back office services shows no sign of abating, with the specialist companies who provide these services growing their client base. Both the new entrants to the banking sector, and the providers of outsourced services have an urgent need for experienced individuals with specialist financial services experience, on an interim and permanent basis, to enable this growth.

The financial services industry is in the midst of major structural change to the regulatory landscape. Regulatory changes, such as Solvency II, Basel II and Basel III, IFRS Insurance Phase II, SEPA, MiFID and Payment Services Directive, are complex and far reaching and have an impact that runs across all financial sectors. Companies increasingly understand the importance of being proactive within this changing regulatory framework and as a consequence, regulatory issues are no longer left to technical specialists but are at the top of senior management’s agenda.

Technology is becoming ever more critical to success within financial services. The competitive advantage of banks and financial institutions relies heavily on the capability of technology to implement business processes, manage risks and provide excellent customer service.
