delivering on our philosophy
With an abundance of talent and competition in the FinTech market our clients can find it hard to identify and bring in the best talent. Failing to hire the top talent can be a huge hurdle to evolution. At EC1 Partners we’ve built our business on the philosophy of empowering others to achieve success - by connecting the top talent with the top firms in the FinTech market.
Here’s what some of our clients had to say about our services and how we live up to that philosophy.
ex CEO - EBS BROKERTEC (i-cap)
We recognise the substantial value that hiring the right talent has on the success of our business and thus when we look for recruitment or headhunting partners we place great importance on expertise and experience. Having worked in EC1 which specialised in financial services for many years now, they had both great insights into what the market was doing and also had a strong network of relationships which ensured that we always had the very best candidates in front of us.
We have been thoroughly satisfied with our relationship with EC1 and the services they have provided. The growth and success of our business has had a lot to do with the people that we have hired and credit must be given to EC1 for the role they have played in helping us do that. They have shown that they have the proven experience and expertise to successfully find both the very best talent in our market as well as the talent that fits perfectly with our business and culture.
EC1 have taken the time and effort to grow our relationship and to really understand our business and market. As trusted advisors in this space, they really listen to our requirements and ensure that they know exactly what we are looking for, right down to the details. They invest in understanding exactly what type of individual would fit into our team. This approach to recruitment is why we continue to work with them because it means we have the very best candidates delivered to us.
Chief People Officer– Trading Screen
I have had the pleasure of working with Jamie as a candidate and as a corporate client and in all instances Jamie has been extremely professional, diligent, and someone who genuinely cares about finding the perfect match as opposed to just filling the role.
As a leader, Jamie built an incredible team across the globe with a group of talented people who bring the same level of professionalism and integrity as Jamie himself.
Time after time, EC1 Partners prove themselves to be the leading recruitment firm in the FinTech space and continue to be my go-to firm when looking for the top talent in the industry. Thank you, Jamie and team!
NASDAQ - HUMAN RESOURCES
I found that EC1 took time to get a good understanding the nature of our business and that inspired confidence that they would perform the type of search that only provided the best suited candidates. Our recruitment partners should save us time and add value by sourcing candidates with the knowledge and skills that are able to enhance our business, that has definitely been our experience to date. EC1’s professional and straightforward direct approach which provides results is encouraging and great for fostering a long term working relationship.
360T GROUP – GROUP CEO
We decided to work with EC1 Partners as they focus their service on financial markets. Their deep market knowledge, personal commitment and strategic approach and especially their understanding of our business and requirements helped underlining their position as trusted partner to 360T.
CEO – BISAM
EC1 Partners demonstrated their expertise of the FinTech market throughout our collaboration, their team of headhunters knew exactly what they were doing. Our needs and expectations were definitely met. They have successfully led our efforts to recruit the best talents to support our growing business.
EC1 were very proactive in their role. They identified the top talent in the market and sold the candidate on the role. It's not easy to recruit and convince high calibre talents and they have been very helpful in that whole process. EC1 have the right relationships, channels and expertise in the FinTech market.
COO - liquidity edge
I have known of and worked with EC1 Partners for a number of years. During each engagement I have found the EC1 team both responsive to my hiring needs and able to interpret the brief well.
The team, particularly Jack, is well connected and can identify strong candidates even before you know you need them. As I continue to grow the LiquidityEdge team in London and NYC I would not hesitate in engaging their services.
