- Candidate, Business Development Director

“I have had to deal with numerous agencies over the past few years – but coming across EJC has been a breath of fresh air. As a candidate I felt very well looked after and represented and within three weeks of first sending my CV to them I now find myself signing on the dotted line at a large CTA manager.”

- Candidate, Quant Analyst

“Recruitment in the alternative industry is phenomenally competitive – especially for junior hires and EJC really helped me kick-start my career. There are many preconceptions about hedge funds but they helped me understand the structures of the businesses and which roles would best suit my competencies. They were very professional, knowledgeable and provided me with valuable support throughout the recruitment process. I would highly recommend them as professional head-hunters.”

- Candidate, Graduate – Junior Sales

“Over the years I have used Peter’s recruitment services as a candidate and a client. I can say wholeheartedly that he excels in both. He’s a rare breed of recruiter as he actually listens to his clients and never makes a promise on which he can’t deliver.

I get good people through EJC because they find motivated people who want to do the job, not just move elsewhere for a pay rise. They are always on top of the process and are energetic in obtaining and analysing feedback.”

- MD, Investment Consultancy

“EJC helped us in sourcing some of our key investment professionals. Rather than dealing with the commission driven, one size fits all service of larger recruiters, we appreciated the tailored and focused approach provided by EJC. Their intimate knowledge of what the hedge business is about allowed them to target a small number of high quality individuals for each role. This left us confident that the short list provided were all possible hires for us, therefore saving us the time and money.”
