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


To take advantage of changing market conditions, Barclay Simpson established a new European division in 2017, operating out of the London.  The team currently comprises 4 senior recruiters and 2 researchers, focusing on the markets of Risk Management, Compliance, Legal, Treasury, Cyber Security and Internal Audit.


The team already has over 30 European PSL agreements comprised of Tier 1 banks, private banks, asset management firms, FTSE 100 corporates and brokerage firms and a geographical focus predominately concentrates on the markets covering Germany, Benelux, France, Ireland and Switzerland.


Europe is an intrinsic part of our 5 year company strategic plan and we are dedicating considerable resource to growing and developing the division. In 2019 our European team has the highest % of anticipated NFI growth across any of our global divisions.



The Role


The Risk division at Barclay Simpson has been established for over fifteen years with permanent and interim teams operating in both London and New York. We are viewed as a market leader in the UK and we have already experience significant success within the European risk markets - the appointment of additional consultant for risk management for Europe is a natural progression for our business.

  • You will be expected to meet clients and candidates as required within Europe.


The Candidate

  • Previous experience as a 360 consultant is essential

  • Strong business development skills are a prerequisite and you should be able to provide evidence of success in this area.

  • The most important attribute will be your attitude, personality and drive to assist us in building out our European division.
