Richard's bio

I am a specialist Risk, Compliance & Analytics recruiter within Search’s Financial Services division with nearly 20 years recruitment experience. Prior to joining Search, I managed the Risk & Compliance recruitment practice for another recruitment company in the North for 8 years and led the Northern Banking & Financial Services sector.

I am passionate about providing specialist market insight to clients, consulting on prospective recruitment campaigns to offer guidance on approach and exceeding expectations on delivery utilising my extensive network.

The Risk landscape is constantly shifting and I find it fascinating to understand the unique challenges faced by Risk & Compliance professionals across the various sub-sectors of Financial Services. I enjoy building strong, long-term relationships with candidates and offer honest, informed advice to help with pivotal career choices.

Please get in touch if you are interested in career opportunities within Risk & Compliance or wish to discuss an upcoming requirement on a confidential basis.

​"Working with David was my first experience in dealing with a recruitment agency.

He was clear, concise and made the whole process seamless. David was in constant contact from start to finish and I knew I could call with any queries or concerns. He called with interview techniques and made sure I was fully prepared."

Candidate

Stephanie Coates

“I cannot recommend David highly enough. Throughout my search for a new position, David’s advice and support was invaluable and it made the job search seem quick and completely hassle free.

It was such a great experience and I am absolutely over the moon to have found the most perfect position which I couldn’t have done without all of David’s fantastic help.”

Matthew

​"Antonia should be an essential partner when seeking the next step in your career. I felt as though she was representing me, rather than the employer and wasn't just trying to fill a vacancy.

She took a genuine interest in making sure the next step was the right one and was patient with me."
