I recruit risk professionals into contract or interim positions for financial services in London
Don't try and limit yourself to a 1 page CV, but at the same time do not mention every responsibility you have ever had. Sending an application to a role is essentially a first round interview. It is important that you have a detailed description of what you have done prior, and focus your experience to show why you are good at this particular position.
I began working for Morgan McKinley in March 2015 as an associate consultant, where I was able to learn the technicalities of the risk market.
I was then promoted to a consultant the same year, where I have been able to use my mathematical background to gain a fuller understanding of the roles I am recruiting for, and the roles which people have been working in. I cover all verticals of risk management, specialising in the contracting market within financial institutions.
