Areas of Activity / Banking & Investments

Banking & Investments

The banking market in Russia at present is experiencing spectacular growth. In order to compete on equal terms with the leading western players, Russian banks have to impose increasingly rigorous demands on their staff, which in turn leads to a reduction in the numbers of potential candidates for vacancies, particularly at senior level. This can only exacerbate the shortage of professionals, which first arose because of the recent emergence in Russia of western methods of doing business, accounting systems, and the ever-increasing demand for market transparency.

The department now has15 staff who specialise in particular selection areas. The team is divided into personnel selection for investment and commercial banks, and also for particular areas within such financial institutions. All our consultants have more than five years experience of working in banks or personnel selection. Last year saw the completion of more than 100 projects for the selection of managers at varying levels.
Among the departments strengths are a finely-tuned market knowledge, long-standing relations with leading managers at all levels, and also work with the major financial institutions both in Russia and abroad.
