Specialists In Banking Recruitment

Michael Page Financial Services recruits at all levels of experience, across both global markets and global banking sectors. Managing the fast-paced and high-profile portfolios of finance, banking, operations, risk, insurance, superannuation, lending, and investment and corporate banking, our specialised consultants place qualified candidates into leading banks and non-banking financial institutions across the country.

We proactively partner with a diverse list of clients including investment banks, retail banks, private banks, family office, hedge funds, asset management and insurance companies. With long-established networks in the banking sector, and a balance between strong global reach and niche local knowledge, Michael Page has become the first recruitment choice for ambitious banking professionals.

In a true partnership approach to recruiting, we use our technical understanding of the financial services and banking sector to bring together the brightest jobseekers and the best employers for a successful match. Many of our consultants worked directly in the banking sector before joining Michael Page, and this industry expertise translates into high-quality candidate shortlists and more successful recruitment outcomes.

Testament to the strength of a 40-year-old London-listed company that has more than 150 offices globally, we receive more than 90% of our business from referrals and satisfied repeat clients.
