Risk Manager – Boutique Investment Bank

“Goodman Masson have been supporting and guiding me with the recruitment process from day one until I was offered my perfect role. It’s been immense help during the recruitment process as it was my 1st job opportunity in the UK, hence, had a lot of questions and queries which were answered and resolved. There was absolute transparency in every stage of the hiring. I would recommend Goodman Masson for their specialised assistance. Thank you for all the support and guidance.”

Compliance Surveillance Associate – International Investment Bank

“Michael helped me land my latest role – a Head of Audit/ SMF5 position in an international bank. From start to finish his support and encouragement was superb and the fact that he always had time to chat meant I felt much more confident and knowledgeable about the role I was going for. I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to either other candidates or equally to hiring firms looking for a reliable and trusted talent search partner.”
