Our regular readers will know that law firms have been increasingly looking for specific sector experience in their BD people over the last 12-18 months. And that this is in line with where the UK market has been for some time, with some firms in Asia structuring this way too.
At the moment, out of all possible sector experience, Financial Services is the area most in demand. If you’re a BDM or Senior BDM with law or accounting/advisory firm experience who has previously supported Financial Services Partners, the world is very much your oyster.
With our alliance partner, we are working on the below two roles in London with our alliance partner and there is a shortage of this skill set on the ground.
Client Relationship Manager – This firm will provide a visa and full relocation package from anywhere in the world.
Business Development Manager – Financial Markets – This firm will provide a relocation package and is interested in British returners or those with pre-existing working rights.
There are also 2 Senior BDM roles about to come to market in London also requiring Finance sector experience.
London has for some months been a harder market to break into from overseas, but if you have Finance sector experience, the door is open.

We have had discreet enquiries from a couple of different firms who are keen to acquire Financial Services BD specialists looking for opportunities later in the year.

In a market where it’s a good idea for candidates to play to their strengths, this sector experience can open doors for you around the world.
