Recruitment Watch: London

Using Talent Ticker’s unique AI data, we look at London’s finance news that will benefit recruiters. Talent Ticker analyses millions of data-points each day and provides recruiters with stories, leads, vacancies and trend analysis that allow our users to stay ahead of the game.

Whilst London finance recruitment doesn’t shut down over Christmas, candidates rarely want to engage in a job search over turkey sandwiches. Now, however, with Dry January beginning to take its social toll, news and recruitment opportunities are picking up significantly. This week’s review includes an office move, a significant hire and a major piece of UK banking news.

Barclays to move UK staff into five consolidated offices

Barclays have announced plans to reduce their UK offices from 14 to five, with “strategic campuses” being created in major cities.

Significant churn is expected as this new office structure is established. Our artificial intelligence system has suggested that hiring is possible, giving a hiring score of 43. We are sure that recruiters will be investigating the current talent, as those who do not wish to relocate are likely be searching for new opportunities once the restructuring plans are formalised.

Livingbridge Continues Hiring Spree with Two New Appointments

Livingbridge have announced the appointment of two new Investment Managers. Mihir Patel and Joseph Evans join the firm from PwC and Ennismore International Management respectively.

Whilst this in isolation would not indicate further hires are coming, our AI has indicated a strong possibility of the trend continuing due to the prolific state of hiring at Livingbridge recently.

Jamaica National Acquires Banking Licence in the UK

The Jamaica National Group have announced that they have received a UK banking license from the FCA. The firm has recently opened a commercial banking arm in the UK and the license will allow them to begin trading.

As Jamaica National are something of an unknown quantity, our AI has only given this event a hiring score of 41/100. Despite this, recruiters should keep a keen eye on the business as significant hiring could be forthcoming.
