Job Description

Barclay Simpson is looking for an experienced, high energy 360 recruiter to join our market-leading global Internal & IT Audit practice.


We are looking for someone whose ambition matches ours when it comes to growth, future development and success.



Why join Barclay Simpson?


You will be joining a genuine global specialist in Internal & IT Audit recruitment. 


We’ve been recruiting into Internal Audit for 30 years and we have a deeply established network of global contacts in the market who know us and, most importantly, who trust us.   We are very close to the market and understand how it is changing and developing, which means we are consistently ahead of the curve when it comes to targeting hot-spots and developing our approach to maximise market conditions.


We have a large global team of experienced Audit recruiters, currently totaling 10 people, covering both the interim and permanent markets across the UK, Middle East, Europe and North America.  Our expert team will support you every step of the way by sharing their deep network of contacts, market insight and technical expertise. You can always count on your colleagues at Barclay Simpson.  We have a strong reputation for living and breathing our company values of collaboration, integrity, insight and respect.



The Opportunity


Our London office was established in 1989 by a qualified internal auditor turned recruiter. Internal Audit is therefore considered to be our headline division and we are well established as the ‘go-to’ recruitment agency for internal auditors.  However, we have ambitious plans to grow further.


We’re experiencing high demand in the Internal Audit market and are seeking to hire an experienced recruiter to maximise our strong position in the financial services market which includes banking and non-banking entities such as brokerages, exchanges and regulators.  This desk will recruit both business and IT auditors and has the potential to generate high billings with a strong client base, an excellent network of candidates and an average fee of £18,000 last year (2018).  There is also scope to accelerate our continued growth in this sector by winning new clients, optimising our candidate pool and enhancing the quality and breadth of our offering.



Is This Role For You?


You must be tenacious, ambitious and a strong team player with a proven track record of 360 recruitment experience. Knowledge of the Internal Audit sector would be beneficial but is not required.  Experience of recruiting for banking clients would also be beneficial, no matter what vertical.


Given the profile of some of our existing accounts, an uncompromising approach to client delivery is essential.



Future Prospects


This role offers a well established specialist platform, with the freedom to grow the Audit market further. This is an area of high billing future potential.


As a growing office we are keen for people to develop with us – as part of our team, you can expect future promotional opportunities in line with our clearly laid out career path.
