Job Description

The Company


Established in 1989, Barclay Simpson is a privately owned governance recruitment firm with specialist divisions covering:


- Legal

- Compliance

- Risk

- Treasury

- IT and cyber security

- Audit


From our offices in London and New York, we work with businesses across financial services, commerce & industry, and professional services throughout Europe, Middle East and North America.


Our services include executive search, contingent perm, interim and salary benchmarking.



The Division


The compliance & financial crime division was established in 2002 and was the most profitable division within Barclay Simpson globally in 2017.


We split the market into regulatory compliance & financial crime and recruit at the mid to senior end of the market having placed numerous global Heads of Department on a retained basis.


We are financial services focused with occasional recruitment outside of this for senior level mandates. We recruit across banking, asset management, brokers, insurers, payment firms, fin techs and other firms in this sector. Our focus is working with a handful of select tier 1 organisations and then with numerous smaller organisations where we can have more ownership and potential for exclusivity.


The team is looking to grow at a steady rate over the next 18 months and this newly created role would be a pivotal part of that growth.



The Role


The role will focus on buy side clients (this includes asset managers, hedge funds, private equity, wealth management etc.) in the regulatory compliance space and will work closely with the Head of Division who has been recruiting in this market since 2010.


The role holder will be given every role that comes in with a fee under £25,000 (either phoned in or proactively gained by the Divisional Head) as well as any role up to any value gained through personal, proactive business development.


Duties will include:

  • Managing existing client relationships

  • Searching and managing multiple processes

  • Building out maps of teams we work with and those we don’t

  • Writing appropriate  and interesting marketing material

  • Utilising a variety of mediums including LinkedIn, eFinancial Careers and our own CRM system to maintain a strong flow of candidates


    The team has high achievers including the highest UK 2017 biller (c£350,000) and will work on many exclusive mandates. The key is maintaining a balance between big ticket work and smaller fees to maintain a consistent flow of fees. The individual will be expected to bill a minimum of £150,000 in the first 12 months with a view to billing over £200,000 each year after that.


    This role benefits from a well established network and brand but there is also scope for extensive business development to develop the desk further.



The Candidate


This is a Consultant role requiring experience of working on a 360 desk. The ability to manage existing relationships as well as an appetite to business develop and grow something are the key characteristics needed.


Candidates don’t need to have worked within compliance or with buy side firms but ideally will be experienced in recruiting for financial services clients in a professional discipline or central function.


An appreciation of compliance, financial crime, risk, audit or legal will be useful but the quality of the individual is far more important.


The desk is lively and the consultants are all driven so a similar mind-set will be vital for anyone to succeed.
