  • 1. Financial Services Recruitment SwitzerlandOliver James Associates Switzerland AG, Mühlebachstrasse 20, 8032, Zürich, Schweiz Registered in Switzerland - Company number. CH-020.3.035.791-3
  • 2. Search & Selection to the Financial Services IndustryOliver James Associates has been a specialist recruitment partner to the Financial Services sector since 2002. We help organisations to attract the mostsuitable talent in the market instead of being limited to a list of candidates that are actively seeking jobs. While our business was initially established as aniche supplier of skilled professionals to the Insurance and Asset Management industries within the UK, we have grown organically and consistently,across the broader financial services sector. More specifically, over the past two years we have further developed our international presence intoSwitzerland, Germany, Benelux and Asia.Having obtained our Swiss license in 2010, we have successfully established ourselves as a leading specialist in the areas of Actuarial, Risk and Compliancerecruitment within Switzerland, on both a permanent and contract basis. Our senior consultants are specialists within their vertical markets and excel atfinding talented individuals for challenging roles. They operate with absolute discretion, integrity and professionalism. Our Swiss team is supported byResearchers and between us we speak a combination of fluent German, French, English and Dutch (please see back page for senior team profiles).

  • 3. Search & Selection to the Financial Services IndustryWe entered the Swiss market in response to two main areas of weakness within the financial services recruitment sector:1. Low employment turnover results in a lack of talent available for mid-senior level roles;2. The supply gap between the top-end reach of most contingency recruitment firms and the bottom-end reach of most search firms results in poor quality of service being delivered in the SFr 120,000-SFr 200,000 salary range.Oliver James Associates satisfy these needs by:1. Passive Swiss Market: proactively reaching out to build relationships with high calibre individuals who are not actively looking for a new role, but are receptive to being presented with their next logical career step. Our Research team has mapped out the entire Swiss market, enabling us to present the highest calibre local talent for our clients;2. Client focus: building value-added relationships with a handful of carefully selected Financial Services providers and ring-fencing the rest of the market as a source of candidates so that our clients have access to key talent from their key competitors;3. Search Methodology: we offer traditional contingency, sole agency and retained search solutions that we tailor to our clients’ specific needs. No matter which solution is chosen, we treat each instruction as an individual project and apply our proactive search methodology to sourcing a high quality shortlist for mid-senior level roles;4. International reach: we also have vertical market teams across Actuarial, Risk, Compliance and Change Management that specifically identify talent in the UK, Benelux, German or Asia Pacific financial services markets. This gives our Swiss clients access to a global candidate pool and we are experienced at introducing professionals that are open to relocation to Switzerland.
