Featured Recruiter of the Month - GQR Global Markets

GQR Logo

GQR Global Markets is an award-winning international Banking & Finance, Commodities & Energy and Information Technology search specialist.

Through continued success, our offices on both sides of the Atlantic continue their growth ensuring we are able to accurately interpret requirements and rapidly execute targeted searches within niche networks for our clients. This has been achieved by working closely with our clients, not only on the targeted searches but also by analysing and advising on the full recruitment processes that they have in place. By consulting on these processes we are helping firms reduce both their time to hire and offer acceptance ratios.

Financial Technology Group – Market Buoyancy

At a recent Technology Forum GQR’s Head of Global Financial Technology, Benjamin Woodcock, took time to discuss the current state of recruitment across the Front Office technology markets with industry heads. Ben quotes: ‘Our discussions were centered around how the emergence of new FO IT projects has not only galvanised the existing workforce but has also led to a sharp increase in applicants keen to be involved on these projects. As a team, we are working closer than ever with our client’s HCM teams to ensure that the candidates identified as being key for these new full project-lifecycle implementations and their evolution are secured against stiff competition from their competitors.’ In particular we are seeing continued hiring from our Investment Banking clients across; Big Data/Data Science, Cloud Platforms, Security and Mobile/e-Commerce.

Middle Office – Growth & Expansion

Emily Slocum, Vice President, has highlighted that GQR’s Middle-Office recruitment teams, who focus on Risk, Compliance, Finance and Operations, have been a key driver in the firms expansion across their offices. Emily observes: ‘Our niche is that we take the benefits from both ends of the spectrum in the recruitment world to make up our service: as a boutique search firm we bring exceptional vertical market expertise and are very relationship and partner focussed, yet we are able to deliver with the large-scale resources and global reach of a large contingent recruiter. This combination has offered our clients a level of service they are not traditionally used to seeing in the US market. The high percentage of repeat business from our clients is testament to the work our consultants are delivering’.
