Global Markets Recruitment are technology recruitment specialists.
Through our extensive networks and employing the latest recruitment practices, credibility and professionalism, we are able to find for our strategic clients the most capable and intelligent technologists throughout Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East.
Our philosophy is simple, we stick to our strengths. We understand where and how we can make a difference. We ensure that before engaging with your organisation and an assignment, we fully appreciate how this will relate to both the long and short term interests of your business and what our role will be in achieving this.
This pragmatic approach is not just professional, but personal. We bring both empathy and understanding to the recruitment process. This can only be done by gaining a thorough understanding through face-face meetings with both clients and candidates, allowing us to appreciate their specific aspirations and requirements.
When working with a company, we employ a rigorous approach. Our selection process consists of screening a pool of qualified candidates. Applicants are identified from various sources based on systematic research and via the Global Markets Recruitment database, allowing us to map the market of potential candidates in various institutions across the globe. We also utilise our extensive professional networks and relationships and bring our vast experience in the recruitment field to bear. This approach saves you a great deal of time, worry and effort by restricting the number of candidates you consider and ensuring that all the candidates you review will be highly qualified and suitable for the position.
Our approach to a potential candidate is made in the most discrete, confidential and, at the same time, compelling way, also taking into account and acknowledging their likely concerns regarding the potential career opportunity on offer.
In turn, we are able to offer candidates who work with us intellectually challenging and financially rewarding positions with the most dynamic, and ambitious organisations throughout Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East. Global Markets Recruitment works with forward looking organisations; organisations that value the importance of their employees.
During the identification phase we hold introductory telephone interviews.
During the selection phase we conduct personal and in-depth interviews with motivated and highly qualified candidates.
This ultimately results in a shortlist of applicants who on the basis of the defined job specification qualify for the position. They should meet the profile requirements as closely as possible and, in meetings with you they should present themselves as being outstanding candidates, willing to accept the role on offer. Candidates are put forward by means of a standardised curriculum vitae, a detailed confidential report including all base salary, bonus and benefits. No personal CV’s are submitted without the candidate’s prior permission.
Finally, we assist at the offer stage and with the integration of the successful candidate into the client’s business.
We work with a range of technology companies, spanning from software houses, to e-commerce platforms. These all have technology at the heart of their organisation. We immerse ourselves in what makes these companies tick; whether it be highly scalable, high performance systems that can deal with millions of views of day on their website, or interactive design making an appealing UI/UX for their consumers.
We appreciate that good guys do not grow on trees, and to ensure quality are well plugged into technology conferences, blogs, social media that will enable us to reach out to find that rare gem.Software Development
The internet has caused a huge amount of data that technology firms now use to their benefit. We find firms experts in 'big data' that are able to create applications that can analyse this data giving their employer a competitive advantage. Candidates in this field will generally excel in technologies like Hadoop, MongoDB.
With the continued advancements with technology we appreciate the need for robust and reactive Information Technology (IT) platforms.
We specialise in finding technologists of real value to the business in the following areas:
High volume small return trading (i.e. High Frequency Trading, Arbitrage Trading and Systematic Trading) has experienced a huge increase in a difficult market due to the low risk and high returns. Competition is now fierce between financial firms, making it vital to get to the market first. It is imperative firms design and develop real time, reactive trading applications and platforms to compete and turn over profits. Global Markets Recruitment specialises in finding high quality IT professionals that design, develop and understand how these complex systems work.
Complex Trading strategies, such as those seen in options and complex forms of derivative Trading, demand very able IT and complex modelling or mathematics (Quants) professionals. This allows traders to calculate, price and execute their trades. Global Markets Recruitment realises that the Front Office and IT are becoming more diluted and we excel in finding professionals who not only understand IT but can work with the business.
Reactive and Strategic Trading firms understand the long term benefits of putting in place a secure IT infrastructure. Many new techniques (virtualisation technologies), and the complexity of putting a responsive Infrastructure in place that can handle huge amounts of data make this a difficult and complex task for many financial firms. Global Markets Recruitment excels in finding professionals who design, develop and support these platforms.
We offer a very competitive referral scheme, and are happy (depending on the fee) to suitably reward anyone who provides a candidate or any information resulting in a placement by Global Markets Recruitment.
