Why does Simon like working in recruitment?
Funds industry recruitment allows for the combination of many of my passions. Firstly, genuinely helping people! There is huge reward in placing an eager candidate with an excited employer, or helping a candidate get that next step up the ladder when it’s important to them and their family.
Secondly, I get to stay involved in an industry I love. I’m passionate about economics and how asset management can be used for good! I wholeheartedly believe in ESG, sustainability and the fight against climate change can really benefit from the correct management of assets.
Finally, but in no way lest, I get to speak with the new generation of funds professionals, to hear their aspirations and hopes for the direction of the industry, and their passion to change the industry to have a better societal impact. This inspires me.
What’s great about Luxembourg?
Being in the very heartland of the EU, Luxembourg’s heartbeat is financial services. If you want to work in funds services within the EU, Luxembourg is simply the best place to be. The heavy dependency upon financial services (and especially the funds industry), combined with the small population, creates a unique working environment where the best can progress quickly.
A team of great people – who know a lot about the funds industry, and all the possible careers in it – is waiting for your call.
