Our Story

We are a niche agency developed by people who are passionate about what they do. Square Mile Connections founded in 2005, has grown and developed into a leading boutique search firm known for its professionalism, knowledge, connections and overall expertise!

Square Mile Connections has over 10 years’ experience working with exceptional talent within Banking and Financial Services and whilst we could write many fantastic things about our business/team, instead we will give you it in a nutshell: –

Square Mile Connections was born out of a desire to provide a more bespoke and consultative approach to recruitment, moving away from the cut-throat, conveyor belt industry it had become. Our relationships are testament to our survival and the most treasured part of what we do. We want to ensure that every part of your journey with us is an enjoyable one, ensuring longevity in our working relationships.

The Brief

Consultants who will ensure they have a full brief from clients to ensure they understand not only the skills required to do the job but the company ethos, culture, team make-up to ensure that we match on every level.  Our only target is that people secure the right role and as a result stay there and become integral members of the team/company.

The Marketing

The marketing of our business has mainly been driven through word of mouth and with this come referrals from the people on the ground who know.  This has been fundamental in growing our network of talent which we are able to share with you.We use a number of methods and mediums outside of our existing network to ensure we aren’t missing a trick and ensuring we are able to provide our clients with a strong shortlist of individuals.

The Shortlist

We ALWAYS do our due diligence!  We believe in getting to know the people we are working with so that we are able to provide our clients with a shortlist rather than a never ending conveyor belt of ‘hopeful CV’s.  We talk to our clients throughout the process as sometimes there are those ‘left fielders’ who are perfect for the role but are overlooked as it may not appear obvious – we provide a consultative approach.

The Interview

You don’t need to worry about this, all you need to do is agree the date and turn up…we do the rest!  All we ask is that you give us feedback so that we are able to build a better working profile on your company and preferences.
