Wow, it’s been a busy month, following my last post, I did decide to accept the position as a Trustee to my company pension scheme and all is going well. There has been a steep learning curve for me to get up to speed with everything I need to know, but it is very interesting so far. Due to extra trustee responsibilities and a recent departure from my team, I now have to recruit a new Client Relationship Manager for the South region.
This has thrown a spanner in the works, as we have good relationships with recruitment consultants based in Manchester and the North and although sometimes they do have positions for the South, London, in particular, this is not their area of expertise. So – I have reached out to my London colleagues and they have put me in touch with a very good financial recruitment consultant that offers that bit extra.
They are called Noble Davies Search and they are a specialist executive search boutique in London and they recruit for distribution roles in the Institutional Asset Management space. I am looking for someone that has good experience of the industry and can hit the ground running, as I don’t have much time to spare to go through things.
My colleague in London has reassured me that Noble Davies have a long standing relationship with our company and know exactly the type of candidates we are after, so I am hopeful that they should find a shortlist of quality candidates quite soon for me to interview.
I am hoping that the new recruit will stay in this role for some time, as this will bolster the team and means that I can devote the time I need to my trustee role, as there seem to be several meetings that I need to attend at the moment.
Stay tuned for more updates…
