Barclay Simpson is a specialist international corporate governance recruitment company. We provide contingent and retained permanent recruitment solutions and interim contract services. We have the resources, specialist knowledge, experience and skilled consultants to provide the most appropriate recruitment solution to any given assignment in our areas of expertise, using either local candidates or drawing from our single global candidate database and extensive networks.
Our consultants, based in our offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and New York work with our clients throughout the UK, Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and North America. We recruit for a wide range of leading commercial, banking, financial services, professional services and public sector organisations.
We specialise in recruiting for the distinct but interrelated corporate functions that support a company’s board of directors in the discharge of its corporate governance responsibilities, namely:
Internal & IT Audit
Security & Resilience
Our consultants are organised into specialist divisions allowing them to build detailed market understanding that allows them to deliver a truly informed and consultative service to both our clients and candidates. We do not believe in hard sell. We know that the right individual for the right position sells themselves. We believe in expertise, detailed industry understanding and long-term relationships.
A lot of recruitment companies say they believe in long-term relationships, but how long do they keep their staff? Barclay Simpson’s record of staff retention is nearly 100%, primarily due to our philosophy of individual responsibility and autonomy, a collaborative working environment and a non-commission based remuneration model, which sees every member of staff share directly in the profitability of the company. Our consultants don’t leave; rather they build up skills and understanding over many years. Our strengths lie in our ability to understand our clients’ and candidates’ needs and use this insight to deliver value to recruitment processes ensuring our candidates are introduced to positions they want and our clients receive the candidates they seek.
Most importantly, we pride ourselves on our objectivity and our professionalism. This approach wins in the long-term.
