OUR RESOURCING DIFFERENCE

Collaboration and transparency are at the heart of all Huntswood projects. We understand that requirements change over time, and often pretty rapidly, and so we’re always prepared to flex our offering to your specific needs.

Huntswood is capable of delivering end-to-end, fully managed resource to take a project off your hands, or simply plug-in trained and vetted resource wherever it is needed. This can take place on your own site or be undertaken in one of our Centres of Excellence, with all the technology, security and infrastructure already in place.

Not only is Huntswood recognised as a market-leading resourcing partner, firms also benefit from our regulatory and advisory expertise – a strength recognised in our placement on two FCA Skilled Person panels.

With a team of over 30 resourcing and vetting professionals, a database of 12,000 associates and 4,000 individuals currently delivering solutions for clients across the country, Huntswood is well-placed to support across a wide range of areas.

Our Recruitment Difference

We are experts in sourcing skilled and qualified specialists for niche, hard-to-fill roles in highly regulated businesses.

Our clients range from FTSE 100 firms through to challenger banks and fintech start-ups. A number of these clients have worked with us since our inception in 1996.

Clients and candidates alike value our knowledge of the market and benefit from our expertise in the areas of:

  • Financial crime and fraud
  • Compliance risk and audit
  • Regulatory change and operations
  • Business assurance
  • Information and security


With exclusivity on around 25% of roles at any time, and one in three candidates submitted typically receiving an offer, our expertise is trusted and highly regarded across both the permanent and interim markets.

Our challenge has been extremely demanding and Huntswood has had to deal with a rapid upsizing of the ongoing engagements, taking the number of deployed staff from an initial 16 to 174 in a very short space of time. The hassle-free experience has been testament to Huntswood's organisational and management skills. Huntswood is able to handle rapidly-changing priorities and react quickly to our needs, but also challenge us on the proposed course of action and the implications involved
