Given our experience of working with many of Europe’s leading investment funds we would encourage candidates to consider the following to put their best foot forward.
- Come equipped with references as it helps build conviction on you – wider context from the market and remaining team members can provide more certainty around your situation as not all cuts are created equal
- Be honest about your story – the truth always comes out, so better to think long-term
- Think about your career plans and skills – investment jobs are very demanding, so make sure this is a route which you are truly motivated for
For our clients and the wider investment community: working with a talent partner can provide a full picture of these situations, and we would urge you to consider these candidates for your hiring processes.
We have seen candidates who have been on our radar emerge; their situation allows for easy referencing, and with less diary conflicts to manage, an expedited hiring process.
