Investigo is an ambitious, market-leading specialist recruitment consultancy, part of the Investigo Group. There are more than 220 of us who specialise in specific sectors which enables us to make a real difference to businesses and individuals across the world. We’re all about people - especially our own. We’re all very different, but we’re all experts at what we do. We share a desire to make meaningful connections with clients, with candidates and with each other. We work together to make things happen – and of course, we make time for plenty of fun along the way.
Our mission is simple. We want to be the go-to business for sourcing interim and permanent talent in the professional services arena. We specialise by both function and sector which enables us to offer an unrivalled depth of knowledge and expertise. We want to shake up the world of recruitment - and we want to become the market leader in every single one of our specialisms. And that’s where our people come in.
About the team
Our Financial Services Change business has been at the heart of the company’s success over the last 10 years, working across a range of large and small financial institutions. Once establishing itself as one of the strongest agencies across the high street banks, the team then diversified into the world of challenger banking and fintech, helping smaller clients build interim change functions to support their growth.
The team is based in London and supports clients from across the UK. Whilst the team predominantly focuses on interim assignments, it is supported by a strong permanent function which has helped grow the client book and improve our offering to clients. With the launch of our Consultancy brand the team are now more involved in winning statement of work (SOW) assignments across the client base.
This is a growing team that has the opportunity to leverage off the wider banking / financial services function as it looks to grow. This sociable team is part of a much larger FS function that has been recently recognised as the best financial services agency across the UK.
