The world of Financial Services, or FS, has always been a traditionally ‘safe’ market. The security against economic downturns has in the past made it not only a safe option for your recruitment career, but one with huge potential.
The way the world spends money has changed. There’ll always be incredible opportunity in traditional FS recruitment specialisms. But now, they’re being pushed by the up and comers.
Think block chain, de-centralised currencies, contactless payments, mobile payments, facial recognition technology. All of these now play into FS. And the market continues to evolve at a rapid pace.
Led by multinationals and startups alike, a special blend of old and new now exists for recruiters looking for both stability and room to grow.
Working in this market will give you exposure to high-profile individuals and businesses. There’s a range of specialisms and depending on your focus, your career could go from strength to strength.
Think FS recruitment’s all about wearing a suit and hammering KPIs? Think again...
