HR Director, Payments Industry

We engaged Barclay Simpson’s financial crime team to undertake a search for a new role for us, Head of Fraud. As this function was a new development for the business we had limited prior knowledge of the market. Barclay Simpson took a lot of time to listen to our needs and then brief us on what we could expect from the market, what our competitive position was and what our budget ideally should be. In good time we were provided with a long list that gave us a good insight as to our options and then a detailed short list that provided us with a focused and consistent strategy for the position. This was a long process as the business needed to feel its way with the role, but it was very well managed with excellent communication maintained throughout keeping all parties engaged through to a successful conclusion.
