Focus on Banking & Finance

Banking & Finance


Centum Recruitment supplies our clients high calibre consultants who have strong technical skills and business domain experience in areas such as Investment Banking, Fund Management, Private Banking and Wealth Management, Life and Pensions, Clearing and Settlement. Our clients have a broad range of IT and business requirements, but we can also provide a more niche service by supplying consultants with specific experience in trade, risk, order and portfolio management solutions as well as other specialist financial applications.  

We place consultants to work on projects at every point in the IT project life cycle. Typical roles we might work on for clients in the Finance Sector include; Business Analysts, Project Managers, Technical Architects, Developers, Testers, Database and Systems Administrators, Trainers and Support. Clients also demand in our candidates, specific knowledge and experience in areas such as Derivatives, Securities, Repo, Clearing, Settlement, Basel II, SOX, Risk Management.

Clients in the financial sector can be particularly demanding and any consultants we supply must be among the very best in the market. To meet this challenge we strive to continually be aware of relevant technological and business domain developments and to stay in close contact with those candidates who have the most up to date knowledge and experience.

Some of the specialist applications our clients require consultants for include:

  • Summit
  • Murex
  • Front Arena
  • Kondor +
  • Calypso
  • Olympic

Every project is unique but demand for certain skills and disciplines remains consistent within the financial markets. These include:

  • Project Management
  • Business Analysis
  • Security
  • Application Development
  • System Integration & administration
  • Database Administration
  • Business Process Improvement

Financial clients often need innovative solutions in technical and business environments with unique features. However certain skills and experience are always in high demand with a broad cross-section of clients. Recent roles we have worked on have demanded expertise in the following and are fairly typical; C, C++, VC++, C#, .Net, Java, Python, Perl, COBOL, RPG, Smalltalk, testing methodologies and database design, development and administration (Sybase, Oracle and SQL Server).
