I recruit professionals into marketing, communications and business development roles within asset management houses. I typically recruit for marketing, events, internal communications and PR, investment communications, RFP writing, and sales support.
Knowledge is power and will set you apart from the rest. It sounds obvious, but it is vitally important that you do your homework before an interview. Not only must you know your CV back-to-front, but you should also know the employer, their business and the market. There is a wealth of resources online (company websites, LinkedIn, Twitter etc.) to enable you to fully prepare for interview. Further help is always at hand from your recruitment consultant, who will be your Career Ally before, during and long-after the interview. The resources are out there, so use them – preparation is everything.
I started my career with Morgan McKinley in June 2014 after working in accountancy. I graduated from the University of Durham with a degree in Modern Foreign Languages in 2013.
I enjoy developing professional relationships and putting my communication and relationship skills to good use, whilst increasing my knowledge of the investment industry.
