A fundamental part of running any business is recruiting the right people. If you get it right everything else falls into place, enabling you to move forward with the firm’s strategic objectives and goals. 

However, most of us have experienced the reality that successful recruiting can be a challenging process – this is where Chamberlain Career Management can help, we save you time and get it right.

Making a difference

Chris Notley set up the company 5-years ago specialising in recruiting for banks and other lenders. His vision was finding the perfect candidate or team against every single mandate. Making a difference to a candidate’s career and livelihood and the client’s business is the ultimate goal and is most rewarding.

Chris discovered a talent for recruiting when working at First Century Entertainment in Tokyo in the late 90s. The company needed to fill short-term vacancies with quality candidates from around the world; targeting America, Europe and Australasia. Chris set up a recruitment business and successfully recruited many candidates from across the globe into a country with a very different culture. It was a thriving business. As overseas recruitment and operations director, he was responsible for properties owned and rented by the business and this experience and interest in property finance led to a specialism when Chamberlain was born.

“Having lived and worked overseas for 12 years, I’m far more open minded and aware of the diverse cultures and backgrounds that can be brought into the workplace to get the right fit.”

Building long-term relationships

On moving back to the UK in 2005, Chris spent 10 years working as a recruitment specialist in commercial and transaction banking and quickly grasped how to make a difference in the industry. With experience running a business and a relationship-first approach, it laid the foundations for him to establish a new firm.

It was the right decision. Five years on and having successfully placed many individuals and entire teams into banks and other lenders, clients return time and time again.

“I’ve built great relationships over the years and I’m proud that clients tell us we’re part of the family, an extension to their business. That’s a great feeling!”

A reputation for the perfect fit

Finding that perfect fit comes with many years’ experience and a deep understanding of UK banking in an evolving market. With a wide network and offices in London and Manchester, Chamberlain places experts from senior analyst to C-suite level in towns and cities across the UK. In fact, seventy percent of placements are made outside of London.

Chris puts his success down to a level of maturity in the industry; a strong understanding of roles and a deep knowledge of structures in start-ups to global banks which guarantees that only the most relevant and suitable candidates are put forward.

“Whenever possible we work exclusively with clients, because the feedback we receive is that it gives them a far better and more efficient experience. One point of contact, a consistent message to market and they’re not having to re-explain the business multiple times. This way we’re able to continually improve our knowledge of the business including cultural fit and ultimately attract the best possible hires. Exclusivity saves both time and money for our clients.”
