HR & Recruitment
As within any other industry, the role of HR and Recruitment in financial services is to manage the most valuable asset any institution has - its people.
It is up to the HR department to ensure that the right people are placed in every position, that they have the skills to do their job and the motivation to continue to perform at their best. And this all starts at the recruitment stage.
Effective HR and Recruitment is key to the success of any financial service organisation. From investment banks and retail banks through to fund managers and private equity firms, every financial services organisation needs capable and experienced individuals to find the resources that will make their company a success.
Performance is Key
In such a highly competitive market, it is essential that each individual fulfils their potential which is why many HR and Recruitment jobs in finance will incorporate organising and running annual performance appraisals for staff.
These appraisals will significantly impact the individuals' annual bonus or may lead to the less welcome side of HR when things are not up to par.
Specialising in HR Recruitment
Many HR and Recruitment jobs will cover the staffing of the entire organisation, especially when the organisation is relatively small. However, other more specific roles are available at larger firms.
Some companies will require specialist HR recruiters to focus on graduate recruitment, lateral recruitment or recruitment marketing.
There are also niche roles for compensation and benefits professionals or those with training and development expertise that will ensure the organisation has the ability to attract the right people, keep them and develop their capabilities.
Internal or External
Banks and financial services companies may have their own internal recruitment team or may employ the services of Recruitment Processing Outsourcing organisations (RPO's).
Recruitment can also be done via headhunters or by using retained or contingency recruitment search firms. At eFinancialCareers we include both internal and external HR recruitment jobs in this section to provide the full picture of the opportunities available to you.
