Technology in Finance: Scott Moncrieff

The Challenge – attracting top technical talent to a financial services company

Our client, a defence technology company, wanted to attract the best STEM graduates, particularly computer scientists, electrical engineers, physicists and mathematicians, to their 12-month placement programme and graduate scheme at their west-country head office. Experience with hardware or coding was essential.

The Solution – use STEM student headhunters to identify talent

We brief all our STEM headhunters, particularly in the universities in the north of England and in Scotland, about the company and position. They spread the word through their networks, encouraging people to apply who often have not heard of this career path before, and didn’t know it was right for them.

The Result – positions filled

Our headhunters identified lots of excellent candidates, and after shortlisting and a thorough interview process with Scott Moncrieff, multiple offers were made.
