A Specialist Financial Services Recruitment Agency

Taking a different approach, getting excellent results

A financial services recruitment agency with a difference

What sets PRS apart from other financial services recruitment agencies is an ability to build strong relationships and provide unrivalled support to clients and candidates. Our focus on our core values ensures we deliver outstanding results time and again.

PRS core values

Experience has shown us that where commitment, trust, respect and loyalty exist, successful candidate placements can be achieved. These core values are at the centre of everything we do. PRS earns the trust, respect and loyalty of candidates and clients by investing time into building relationships, not just for now but lasting long into the future too. Our experience has shown us that taking the time to get to know our candidates and clients ensures the right candidate is matched to the right role, first time. It is important to us that all of our candidates find finance work they enjoy and will help them thrive in their career.

Strong relationships are the key to success

PRS believes in quality, not quantity: you are people, not numbers. All candidates are treated as individuals. Each candidate is spoken to so their needs are fully understood. PRS understands that all clients have different recruitment requirements and these can only be fully understood after in-depth discussions about the clients business. Because of the strong need to fully understand clients and candidates, it is a necessary skill of a financial services recruitment agency to develop and nurture relationships; this is one area where PRS excels.

Expert advice and support when you need it

Making a career move and recruiting a new employee are important, milestone events for all concerned. You deserve the best advice and support available. With PRS you have full access to our expert knowledge of financial industry recruitment to help you. It is important for you to feel fully in control, so you can choose to have as little or as much help as you wish – from writing a powerful CV to consulting on team dynamics and from interview techniques to induction excellence.

Your satisfaction is everything

We think you will find our personal, consultative approach refreshingly unique, but please don’t take our word for why you should choose us as your financial services recruitment partner – we’d rather you find out for yourself.

Eighty per cent of our work comes to us through recommendation, which is reassuring for us both!

Call for an initial chat on 07894905360 and we’ll take it from there. We’re very flexible, so if you find it hard to find time during the working day, it’s not a problem. You can request a call back and we will call you at a more convenient time.
