Local knowledge - Global resources - Specialist consultants
Barclay Simpson specialises in corporate governance recruitment. Since 1989 we have been working with the functions that support boards of directors and senior executive management to meet their corporate governance and regulatory compliance objectives.
Through our network of offices in London, Edinburgh, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and New York we provide access to local and international talent pools of corporate governance professionals throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, and North America. We work with a wide range of banking and financial services, commercial, professional services and not for profit organisations across the globe.
We recruit for specialist roles in internal & IT audit, risk management, regulatory compliance, information risk & security, business continuity, legal and treasury.
In essence we do what our clients are unable to do themselves. We add value to our clients’ corporate governance recruitment endeavours by sourcing hard to find corporate governance professionals by bringing to bear a unique combination of a specific focus on corporate governance, highly experienced specialist consultants and access to both the local and international talent pools of corporate governance professionals.
We are organised into specialist divisions with consultants that specifically focus on a particular professional discipline and market sector to ensure a truly informed level of service provision.
- Internal & IT Audit
- Risk Management
- Information security
Our service style is consultative, not hard sell. Our consultants are not paid by individual commission; we employ a unique profit sharing and employee ownership remuneration model that incentivises our consultants to build long term profitable relationships with our clients. We aim to be informed and objective. This aim is achieved by recruiting high calibre consultants and then retaining them long term; in over 20 years we have never lost a consultant to a competitor and in the recent recession, we did not make any redundancies. Our consultants stay with us, building their expertise and their ability to deliver a value added service.
Our length of experience and degree of specialisation in corporate governance allows us to deliver the recruitment solution most relevant to the demands of a particular position, whether that be contingent, retained or interim. We have built and maintain a single global database of over 30,000 corporate governance professionals. This resource is the starting point for any assignment and can be augmented by our consultant’s networks, our research team and advertising on our own website and specialist online recruitment sites. Our ability to source and select appropriate candidates for a given position is underpinned by the depth of experience and degree of specialisation of our consultants.
