How we attract our candidates  

We are delighted to have such a wide range of high quality candidates on our database. Many of these have not been placed by anyone else throughout their careers. Others have been with us since we started. There are a number of good reasons for this:

  • Reputation For many years now, we have enjoyed one of the strongest reputations for London's banking and finance recruitment consultancies. Candidates often say that they were happy to approach us because they had heard good things. The same applies to satisfied clients putting our name forward after they have moved firms. We then work hard to reinforce those positive impressions by delivering great service. Trust us, it works.
  • Word-of-mouth Typically, candidates will have heard about us because we had been recommended by colleagues whose word they can trust.
  • Visibility Whenever appropriate, we use a number of on-line job boards together with our own website - - to attract a wider cache of candidates to vacancies, giving us good visibility.
  • Longevity Specialising in the banking and finance sector for as long as we have, means that we have been able to service an increasing number of London's most successful banking and financial institutions. Who does not want to work for one of those?...

The net effect of all this is that Barbara Houghton Associates candidates may be looking for work, but they are looking with all the confidence of workers given sterling opportunities from a highly responsive team working hard on their behalf.
