Who we are

Bluefin Talent is a specialist search and selection agency, working with ‘blue chip’ financial services organisations across London and the Middle East; focusing exclusively on Financial Services and Risk. Being niche allows us to offer a premium search service, tailored to overcome the technically challenging nature of recruitment for the specialist functions we work with.

Steered by a dedicated team of ex-financial services industry professionals and established recruiters, we have a strict focus on the quality of candidate we represent, targeting ‘best of breed’ industry professionals. Extending our deep market knowledge of the industry, we offer an unrivalled service by providing a level of candidate pre-screening and qualification that is largely anomalous to the recruitment profession.

Our ability to bridge the technical knowledge gap typical recruiters encounter, coupled with a thorough delivery process allows us to drive consistently superior results for our clients’ sourcing requirements. Designed to provide a fast and efficient turnaround, we minimise the use of internal resources our clients spend vetting inadequate profiles, allowing them to quickly get back to focusing on their strategic goals.

Our strength lies not only in the specialist nature of our firm, but also in the commitment we show towards our clients and candidates.

We endeavour to build long-term relationships and recognise the crucial nature of communication throughout the recruitment process.

Excellence, integrity, respect and transparency are cornerstone to the culture we promote.
