Project Management & Business Analysis
Candidates with strong influencing skills and a track record in successful end to end delivery, are highly sort after due to the significant increase in demand for delivering improvements in systems functionality, core architecture and for ensuring firms are regulatory compliant.
Account & Relationship Management
For any successful financial technology company to prosper, it is crucial to protect the revenue streams generated by its existing clients. This is why strong Account Managers and Relationship Managers are vital in establishing the foundation on which it can develop and grow.
Regulation & Compliance
A famous FinTech entrepreneur once observed, when asked about the effect of regulation on his company, that the Bank's headwinds are our tailwinds! Regulations are at the heart of everything we do, with examples; BCBS 239, CASS, MiFID 2, Dodd Frank & EMIR, SFTR, GDPR
Business Operations & Client Service
Candidates from Operations and Client Service backgrounds are in high demand with many of our clients in this space, especially those with the ability to apply their Banking and Markets knowledge in arguably the more challenging, innovative and commercial environment of Fin Tech.
Product Management & Development
At the heart of any FinTech is its products and services, however they cannot afford to be complacent in their approach to solutions development. The Markets and the regulations shaping them always challenge companies to improve, innovative and re-purpose existing platforms.
Most Banks have restructured their core infrastructure to position some functions into a 'Shared Service' model, to include Collateral, Tax Ops, Reconciliations, Brokerage, and Asset Servicing. As such, it presents an opportunity for FinTech firms to help improve efficiencies in this regard.
Sales & Business Development
Candidates with Sales and Business Development backgrounds are in demand everywhere. All our clients have a desire to develop new business, to protect existing revenue streams, and to ensure their products and solutions reach a much wider, and more geographically diverse audience.
Programme Management & PMO
The very best PMO and Programme Managers will always bring a commercial edge to their role. Those who can genuinely add value have the ability hold people to account, garner respect from peers and direct reports, and drive multiple work streams from end to end.
With any product or solution, the real magic is what lies behind it. If you are IT Audit, Technology Risk, Application Development, or instead have a Technology aligned background in either Project delivery or Business Analysis, we really want to hear from you.
