Chris Forbes

Managing Partner

I have always had a passion for knowing how things work and if I don’t know it I like to surround myself with experts to figure it out.  In my early 20’s I found recruitment was a great way for me to work with senior stakeholders, I took the lessons of success and failure from the project managers and engineers I worked with and developed a consultative approach to client delivery and helping people progress their career.

This served me well and by 25 I was a director of my own search and selection business and working across London, NY and APAC and built many meaningful friendships through the world. 18 years on I still love the detail and describe myself as a technical recruiter with deep specialisation in financial markets and management consultancy.  I’ve worked up to C Suite across the big investment banks, asset managers and large consultancies and helped build teams that have been rated number one in the world. 

I am still hands on and get the same buzz from placing the right person in the right role, just as I did when I stated.  I am a people person and always try to do a good and fair deal for both clients and candidates, my honest straightforward approach continues to serve me well.  As a father with a young family I am passionate for sustainability, I support a few environmental charities because like business the choices we make need to be built on strong foundations.
