Les D'Silva

Client Services Director

Financial Technology recruitment has been my passion for over 25 years and during this time I have seen many changes: dotcom bubbles rise and burst, a Y2K that never was, multiple recessions and multiple rebounds. But one thing has stayed firm – the best businesses need the best talent whatever the market conditions.

What I love is to see most are the junior developers I once placed now becoming the heads of department or even CIO’s. It fills me with a great sense of pride and nothing more so than providing these same talent solutions for clients that were once my candidates.

The relationships I have built and fostered throughout these years are always built on delivery, trust and understanding. This approach is the fundamental reason we are able to form such long-term partnerships.

Of course, following such a journey means you have to have some fun along the way and what better than spending time with my three children, or visiting our international offices. I discovered tennis a few years ago and this now forms a key part of my weekly fitness regime.
