It goes without saying that finance and accountancy professionals are always in high demand, for positions in the largest of multinational corporations to the smallest of niche companies, and within the UK as well as overseas. Of course, London is a global financial powerhouse and always has been, leading the way in investment banking and global finance. The UK also has an enviable global position across commercial and retail banking and in insurance, risk and financial services. In such a diverse and extensive sector, talent is inevitably highly sought-after and competition from international employers is fierce.

Across the financial industry, change and innovation is both rapid and astonishing in its scale and complexity. Ever-more complex financial products demand highly-skilled professionals to bring them to market and trade them effectively, and globally-connected marketplaces mean that accounting practices and compliance are more complicated today than at any time in history. The giants of the finance and insurance industries are increasingly being challenged by faster, leaner startups with a niche approach that chips away at long-standing loyalties and market shares.

In such a dynamic and dramatic business environment, only the best quality staff can deliver the results that are required to succeed. Cartisian knows that our clients’ future success depends on our ability to understand their recruitment needs, identify the best candidates and match the right people to each role. We believe our approach to recruitment delivers tangible benefits to both clients and candidates, and we’re proud of the results we achieve.

Accounting and finance recruitment

Accounting & Finance

Within the manufacturing sector, accounting and finance professionals fulfil some of the most challenging and complex roles, with the financial security and stability of organisations resting firmly on their shoulders. The growing dangers of cybersecurity threats and hacking attempts, as well as ever-increasing layers of international legislation and compliance regulations, mean that roles within accounting and finance require excellent professional skills and in-depth experience, coupled with a determined and motivated approach, and a desire to make a real difference within an organisation.

Roles within accounting and finance typically include accountants, financial controllers, management accountants, and finance managers. These roles may be temporary and project-based, or they may be permanent. They may also be based in the UK or overseas, and some may involve extensive international travel.

Cartisian has recruited countless finance and accountancy professionals over the years, for manufacturing and engineering organisations of all sizes. From corporate finance professionals to finance controllers and directors for small, independent firms, we can work with you to shape your requirements, bringing you the very best talent from within this competitive sector. We understand that candidates need to be commercially-focussed, with in-depth experience within the manufacturing sector or similar fields, and familiar with management accounts, project costings and other relevant areas. It goes without saying that candidates need to have appropriate ACCA, ACA and CIMA qualifications, and our robust screening process will take this into account when qualifying candidates

Business & Retail Banking

Dramatic change is apparent in every area of both business and retail banking, whether it’s increased regulatory controls, changing patterns of demand, rapidly expanding digital channels or higher customer expectations. All of these things are driving significant innovation within the sector, and organisations are investing heavily in the right people to help them navigate this exciting period of change.

Career paths within business and retail banking start with graduate opportunities in business analysis or customer support, and proceed up to commercial or retail banking director roles. Other types of role include consultants in digital banking and payments, digital marketing managers, and security architects.

In-depth knowledge and significant practical experience is required for many roles within business and retail banking, and Cartisian can help target and identify the very best candidates for roles within this sector, filtering only the very best for interview and selection.

investment and legal recruitment

Investment & Legal

As the influence of the various global financial hubs shifts and sways, recruitment within investment banking becomes ever more challenging, as individuals seek out roles with excellent opportunities, benefits and career progression. We understand that top-quality talent knows its worth and what it wants from the next role, and we help clients understand this, so that both they and the candidate get maximum value from the recruitment process.

Roles within investment banking include data scientists, M&A associates, process analysts, relationship managers, product managers (derivatives, equities, fixed income, etc.) and executive roles such as Chief Banking Officer. Legal roles within this sector include compliance officers, insolvency and restructuring leads, investment banking lawyers, and legal consultants.

Insurance & Risk

Often seen as a mature sector, the insurance industry is having to adjust to a changing global environment, with new entrants able to introduce products and services to the market quickly and via channels that are less familiar to incumbent organisations. At the same time, customer loyalty can no longer be relied upon, and organic growth has become harder and harder to maintain.

Risk, too, faces challenges of its own, with new threats facing organisations on an almost daily basis. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown the entire world that threats don’t always come from where we are expecting, and don’t always have the impact or effects that we have planned for. Factor in the global issue of cybersecurity and the impact of data breaches, hacking and organised cybercrime, and risk professionals look set for a very busy future. Investment in people for risk-related roles is critical for financial organisations to grow and to survive.

Within risk, roles might typically include compliance, risk and diligence associates, risk managers, assurance managers, and business risk and controls advisors. Within insurance, roles might include insurance brokers, customer support staff, underwriting assistants, property assessors, account handlers, loss adjusters and claims handlers.

Taking the time to really match the right people to each role is what sets Cartisian apart from other recruiters. We listen to our clients to ensure we fully understand every role, and we listen to our candidates to ensure we meet their needs too, so that only the very best candidates are put forward for each role. Our results speak for themselves, so contact us today to find out how we can help you recruit and retain quality staff across your organisation.
