At McCabe & Barton we offer a bespoke recruitment service specialising in the placement of high calibre staff for Financial IT markets around the globe. We are a small, focussed and professional organisation with years of practical experience in Financial Markets, technology and City Headhunting.
Set up in 2000 by Gillian McCabe and Russell Barton to focus at the mid to senior level, we have since grown and now very successfully work with all levels of individuals on both a contract and permanent basis.
Gillian's unique background (she worked in IT in the City for 18 years, latterly as Head of Treasury IT for a major US Bank) and Russell's Headhunting expertise allows us to fully understand both our client and candidate needs and the intricacies of individual roles, and means we have excellent company and market information.
Our relationships with our clients and candidates are of upmost importance to us, we pride ourselves on our honest, straightforward and informative approach and our excellent market knowledge. Our approach is a mix of cold research, referrals and headhunting - irrespective of the level of the role.
Headed up by Gillian McCabe & Russell Barton, the team primarily focuses on roles from Director level to senior MDs in Europe, Asia and North America - both permanent and contract. In-depth and consistently updated knowledge of the market place allows us to work swiftly and accurately whether it is a retained search or an exclusive piece of work. Relationships with Clients and Candidates have been built up over a number of years to allow us to understand what our Clients want, what our Candidates are looking for and where their skills lie - a huge number of these relationships go back to our inception.
The Core IT team focuses on permanent roles from Analyst Programmer through to Development Manager. Alongside our database that has been built up since 2000, the Core IT team places a high value on finding candidates using a mixture of cold research, referrals and headhunting - we consider this essential in order to maintain high levels of service and ongoing relationships and means our Clients often rely on us to deliver against their harder to fill roles.
MBCI has grown rapidly in a short space of time. MBCI was established in 2007 by Jacqui Bull to focus on providing our Clients with solutions to their contract and interim recruitment needs from Senior Consultants through to Junior Contractors. Alongside the rest of McCabe & Barton, MBCI places a high value on finding candidates using a mixture of cold research, referrals and headhunting - this often means we are successful in delivering for roles that have been difficult to find candidates for. We place a high degree of attention on building long lasting relationships with our contractors and our clients.
