Business / Systems Analysis
Since I joined Caspian One in 2007 the FinTech landscape has changed dramatically. For me, this has been a blessing, as it's allowed me to work up from ground level to now dealing with top-tier clients across the UK financial markets. In addition, I also have the benefit of a great team to manage, who are consistently delivering quality highly skilled candidates for our 30+ key clients in particular niche verticals.
I’ve been with Caspian One for the past seven years. In that time I’ve grown our global engagement capabilities (across three continents) within Vendor specific technologies (kbd+, ION etc…) whilst also working with other niche skillsets and business areas. Also, I have spear headed our client expansion. This has subsequently meant I have been the highest billings and sales consultant year on year since 2014. I believe my successes relates to the level of passion, intensity, drive and motivation I express. Much of this I learnt early in my career, through working in sales, with likeminded colleagues, and studying Marketing and Finance at University. However more importantly, it’s my ability to create real relationships with everyone I work with (client, candidate, colleague) that I credit highest. I’m now Caspian One FinTech’s Senior Account Manager, and in this role I lead our business development and client engagement activities. I also have the fantastic opportunity to share my experiences with my team, and see them craft rewarding careers.
Since joining Caspian One in February 2014 I've learned a great deal about providing 360 recruitment within the UK FinTech market; and have developed strong relationships in a highly competitive industry. To achieve this and succeed as a recruiter I feel it's important to understand the real needs of candidates and provide them with a genuine approach. If I don't think the role is a relevant fit, I will tell them straight - as I can then help them to find their 'right' role. I believe the amount we care for clients and candidates sets us apart from alternative recruiters - seeing candidates as people, not CV's - and building relationships that last.
In my opinion, consulting within the UK FinTech market requires a patient and thorough approach. Account management is my favourite part of this role, and since joining Caspian One in November 2015 I've experienced exactly how accurate attention to detail and a persistent nature supports clients and candidates alike. It's these techniques which enable me to meet with, and exceed, my clients hiring expectations; whilst also securing fulfilling contract and permanent placements for my candidates - building strong relationships along the way.
For me, recruitment is about helping people develop in their careers, whilst also building long-lasting relationships - be that with contractors, a permanent placement or hiring managers. This means not simply placing CV's, but having a real invested understanding of what candidates need and clients want. I'm confident in my abilities and know that anyone I've worked with in the past would openly use me again in the future.
