Recruiting in compliance and governance


When you require specialist knowledge to support your firm in compliance, governance and oversight, dealing with a recruitment company with years of experience filling niche roles will ensure peace of mind, and, of course, great candidates.

Huntswood has been working with financial services firms since 1996, from individual advisers and smaller organisations to the UK’s largest financial institutions. We also work with firms in other regulated industries, including energy, water and telecommunications. During this time we have consistently matched our candidates’ specialisms to our clients’ requirements.

Our team is close to the real issues when it comes to regulation and best practice, as we work alongside Huntswood’s regulatory and business improvement consultants.

The result of this is deep contextual knowledge of your firm’s challenges and attention to detail when it comes to your requirements. As such, we’re confident that the candidates we recommend will be suitable for the role you need to fill.
