Having worked as a Director at a leading, generalist Accountancy & Finance recruiter in London for many years, Chris Drake felt that certain sectors were under-serviced when it came to their financial recruitment requirements. Generalist recruitment companies were either more focussed towards “sexy” industries such as media, retail or FMCG, chose to focus on booming Banking & FS sectors, which offered higher remuneration packages, or they divided their client bases by geography without any industry differentiation.
