From Our Website

From our international offices we are able to source experienced professionals across the UK and Europe, North America and the MENA region and covering all industry sectors. Our success lies in the calibre of consultants that we employ, who have an in depth understanding of their niche markets and the ability to draw upon a sophisticated network of contacts built up over many years. To this we add an empathy with both the requirements and values of our clients and the aspirations of our candidates, so ensuring the very best match is achieved.

We have specialised in recruiting first line Treasury and Treasury Risk Oversight professionals for 10 years and have a deep understanding and extensive network of contacts in these markets. We operate at all levels between Treasury Analyst and Group Treasurer. Within the team we have experienced consultants working in banking, asset management, insurance, commerce and industry, consultancy and the not for profit sectors. We cover both permanent and interim roles nationwide across the UK. As of today, all our consultants are working from home - fully operational and contactable as normal.

Since 2000, the business has offered specialist recruitment services across the Middle East region. We recruit for all our specialist areas of internal audit, risk, compliance, cyber security and resilience, legal and treasury. During this time we have gained an in-depth understanding of the Middle East market, how best to source the most appropriate candidates and the logistics and processes involved in moving people within the region or attracting them from the wider international market. We work with a wide variety of clients in the region that include international and local banks, sovereign wealth funds, financial services, government organisations and a diverse range of commercial and industrial companies.

Barclay Simpson has specialised in the recruitment of cyber security professionals since 2001. Our practice covers, information security, cyber security, IT security, technology risk and information risk. Our long established team has extensive experience of recruiting on a permanent and contract basis for in-house positions in commerce and FS groups, as well as consultancy and systems integration businesses, and cyber & information security vendors. We have built extensive networks of contacts across the banking and financial services, commercial, government and technology sectors.

Barclay Simpson specialises in recruiting professionals who work within the functions that support corporate governance and related areas, such as treasury management. We cover these markets across the UK and Europe, North America and MENA, covering all sectors including banking and financial services, commerce and industry, professional services and not for profit organisations. Our highly experienced consultants are organised into specialist divisions across each location. This focus allows us to build a considerable depth of knowledge in our own niche subject areas and geographies.

Having recruited internal auditors and IT auditors since 1989, we have a deep understanding and extensive network of contacts in this specialist market. This allows us to quickly source the most appropriate candidates for any role and also to offer real choice and direction to those seeking a new role, whether on an interim or permanent basis. Within our audit team we have specialist consultants working in banking, asset management, insurance, commerce and industry, professional consultancy and the not for profit sectors.

Barclay Simpson's legal division specialises in providing in-house legal recruitment solutions to a wide range of organisations, be they global institutions with large legal functions, or small privately owned businesses looking to recruit their first in-house legal advisor. We work with lawyers at all levels from newly qualified to general counsels and we have built an excellent reputation within in-house markets. We choose not to recruit for law firms and we are free to move lawyers from any of the top City firms, so allowing us to offer those looking to move in-house a truly bespoke service.

Alongside their divisional and regional specialisations, our consultants also concentrate on specific industry sectors. We work with clients in a wide range of sectors including banking, asset management/funds, insurance, professional services/consultancy, not for profit and commerce and industry. By working closely within these sectors, our consultants have developed an in-depth understanding of their markets and are able to advise of the best recruitment methods, career development and provide detailed market information.
