I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ethan and Nicky from EC1 - it was a very positive experience and one I will always be grateful for. They were warm, welcoming, encouraging and really knew their trade. Fast forward to now, I am very happy to have received a position they put be forward for. The constant updates, coffees and chats kept me calm and confident. They were all very kind and supportive, which I really appreciated. I would 100% recommend them and have really enjoyed working with them. EC1 is definitely the best agency I’ve ever worked with.

Dealt with few advisors there & always a great experience. Truly interested in placing you, they provide feedback and they don’t just disappear and ‘ghost’ their candidates. Would highly recommend.

EC1 service is excellent. They definitely do stand out from others in the market. Scott has been very professional and helpful through out the process. It was very easy to work with him. He not only gave me the best options to choose but also clearly understood my expectations from my next role. Small details made a huge difference. I would not hesitate to recommend EC1 to anyone. Thank you once again Scott, for helping me find my dream job.

We get it right, saving you time and making you money

Get the best hires. Fast

When you need a new employee, you need them now

Not after a substantial investment of both financial resources and extensive time in advertising efforts. 

Not after combing through reams of applications and CVs.

Not after rounds of interviews and competency tests. 

Not in six months if you’re lucky. 


We can’t promise you now. No one can. But we do promise you fast. Fast, and accurate. 

We do all the hard work and only bring you the best candidates.

What is our secret?

We know Fintech. We know our clients. And we know how to find you the candidates to make an immediate impact on your projects.

We build relationships

We get to know you and your company. What makes you tick. What it’s like to work with you. What you need from your employees.

We do the same with our candidates. We learn about their key skills but we also find out their long-term goals and development plans.

So when you tell us you need new talent, we probably already have someone in mind.


We know the business

We’ve been in this game for a long time. We know the industry backwards and inside out.

We understand what you need, and we know how to find it.


We’re accurate

We have a big pool of top-quality candidates. And if we don’t already have the right people we know where to find them.

We focus on accuracy over quantity. We pre-qualify candidates to save you time and money.

So you have the luxury of choosing from a top-notch selection.

What can you expect from us?

Step one

First, we get to know you. We talk to you and ask questions about your business.

Step two

Then you get a custom plan built to your requirements. And we walk you through it step-by-step so you know what to expect, and when.

Step three

We interview and assess the candidates to create a shortlist based on your criteria. We pull these from our existing network and in-depth market research.

Step four

Next, you get an initial shortlist of candidates. We make it easy for you to choose who to take to a final interview.

Step five

We help you to narrow it down.

Step six

You get the best candidate for the job.

Don’t take our word for it

Listen to what our clients have to say.
