‘Deep knowledge’, ‘brilliant and ballsy guarantee system’ with an ‘ethical approach’
Kite Consulting Group, the City recruitment firm specialising in financial services, capital markets, banking and the fintech sector today announced that it has won the hotly contested Best Banking/Financial Services Recruitment Agency award at the 2016 Recruiter Magazine Awards.
The judges commended Kite Consulting Group’s focus, now serving some 90% of the financial market infrastructure sector sourcing contract and permanent hires for senior level IT risk and compliance, change and operations positions. They recognised Kite Consulting Group’s model to source ‘A-players’, namely the top 10% of candidates while offering a fee refund guarantee and a return on investment ‘that delivers more value per pound than any other agency’. Specifically, the judges cited that Kite Consulting “…demonstrated deep knowledge…”, had a “…brilliant and ballsy guarantee system…” and offered an “ethical approach to supporting needs of clients and candidates.”
Commenting on the win, Daniel Halstead, CEO of Kite Consulting Group said: “We are delighted to have won this category, not least given the calibre and size of the other much more established entrants. We became a specialist financial services supplier four years ago based on two core principles: an approach that is quality-focused and ethical and being the most valuable supplier to our clients. This award is an important milestone in the journey we have ahead of us.”
Managing Director, Nathan Fuller added: “Every day we receive interest from firms across the broad spectrum that is Capital Markets, Banking and FinTech. Last year we undertook a survey of our client base and 93% of our clients rated our knowledge of financial market infrastructure (FMI) as above or well above average compared with other recruiters. There is no better referral than a client referral and 76% of our clients told us they would recommend us, but even more importantly some 70% stated that hires from Kite Consulting Group perform better (based on ROI) than from other financial services recruiters. We are immensely proud to have been named Best Banking/Financial Services Recruitment Agency.”
