Job Description

The Company


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

  • IT and Cyber Security

  • Corporate Security and Resilience

  • Legal

  • Compliance

  • Risk

  • Treasury

  • 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


  • Barclay Simpson has one of the UK’s most established information security recruitment teams with a proven track record across cyber security, info security, IT security, corporate security, data privacy and technology risk management. This high performing area has ambitious growth plans.

  • Information security and privacy are growing professions with matching fast growing recruitment markets and we have been active in this area since 2001.

  • This combination of high levels of growth, development and importance on the agenda of Boards has meant that recruiting for security and privacy remains a growing market.

  • Our team places candidates from Analyst through to Managing Director and Global Heads of Department. We are well networked with financial services, large corporates and consultancy firms. You will be joining an experienced, highly networked and knowledgeable team and work alongside some very proven billers.

  • You will be working with professionals mainly earning between £70k and £200k with a combination of retained and contingent work.


The Opportunity


  • The Security division’s Information Security recruiters have been involved in recruiting data privacy specialists for a number of years. Given the higher priority given to this area with GDPR and other regulations, the time is now to create a specialist Data Privacy desk. You will work closely with the interim Data Privacy recruiter and liaise closely with both your information security recruiter colleagues and colleagues from the legal and compliance teams.

  • This is a cross market desk so you will work with clients across FS, consultancies and commerce.


The Candidate


  • We have high expectations in terms of the service we provide to our clients and candidates and the reputation we hold in the market.  We expect all new recruits to meet this high level of service and be able to deliver to tight deadlines. 

  • We are looking for an experienced recruiter who is used to working with professionals and is excited by the prospect of taking hold of this area and continuing to build it out. The market you have worked in the past is less important to us than the standard of work you have carried out.
