Guarantee your next strategic hire.

Take advantage of our unique market mapping methodology that identifies talent from the whole pool and not just the shallow end.

We take away the uncertainity and unpredictability of output that a standard recruitment firm delivers by presenting tailored retained search and selection services through unrivalled data mapping techniques.  We also guarantee each hire for 12-months to each of our select clients. 

FINCO Search is a specialist in recruitment project mapping/project management and offers a full 360 degree managed recruitment service, taking ownership of advertising, sourcing and candidate negotiations/on-boarding.   We believe the contingency market can often represent an over-brokered and under-serviced recruitment model that leads to speed over quality and often a race to the bottom. 

Our retained search solution offers our clients a full partnership on strategic and critical hires where we take the full responsibility of getting the right candidate on the desk in a time-efficient manner.

We provide a bespoke, fully visible, recruitment process in collaboration with our clients that delivers a REAL choice of both active and passive talent without any compromise on quality or speed. 

Our headhunters and researchers work with a select group of clients in financial markets, wealth management, asset management and regulatory compliance globally to deliver a CREDIBLE platform in which to drive competitive growth through strategic hiring.

Retain us to guarantee your next hire, we love the challenge, and ALWAYS deliver.

Our consultants are proud to have a 100% fill rate on retained searches.

FINCO Search is a team of experienced Executive Search consultants specialising in the Financial Services industry.

Here at FINCO Search we augment professional careers by partnering with talented candidates across a range of Management, Strategic and Executive roles within the Wealth Management, Asset Management, Regulatory Compliance and Financial Markets sectors.

We partner with driven individuals with a track record of success and delivery to find the next exciting challenge. With a 100% success rate on our retained search methodology, we ensure all candidates are a good fit for the organisation and an asset to the hiring company.

We are retained by our clients to work on an exclusive and confidential basis. 

That often means that with certain clients, we are representing opportunities with them that are not in the public domain for confidentiality reasons.

We predominantly reach out to candidates directly for mandates that we are working on and only advertise roles to ensure our clients have full visibility of the talent landscape for shortlisting.  

Once engaged on a particular position we support all candidates throughout the recruitment process providing a full briefing on the opportunity, the company and all of the people involved in the hiring process. 

Our personalised approach ensures we are best fit for professionals looking for their next career move.
