“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.”

“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.”
