Fintech & Senior Talent – Hiring for Growth

May 30, 2017

Carlyle has built strong partnerships with multiple start-ups, SMEs and large, listed corporates within banking and financial services during our 15-year history. Such long-standing relationships have allowed the team to observe the rise of fintech at close quarters. In addition to well-established financial brands such as Royal London and Tesco Bank, our client base also includes disruptive, fast-growth fintech players such as peer-to-peer lender LendingCrowd, identity specialist The ID Co. and cybersecurity specialists ZoneFox. 

“It is evident that Scotland has a strong talent pool emerging from our universities, incubators and accelerators,” says Duggie Carlyle, founding partner of Carlyle. “These institutions and initiatives are invaluable in developing and encouraging individuals with the intellect, ambition and desire to succeed, However, alongside encouraging emerging talent, we also need to attract and cultivate a network of seasoned executives, non-executives and advisers who have the relevant experience and knowledge to help innovative businesses to flourish.”

“Fintech businesses obviously need disruptive thinkers, digital experts and technical specialists in order to thrive, but they also need experienced leaders who can help turn ideas into viable business propositions with the ability to scale. This has created opportunity for Carlyle to partner with growth businesses who have this requirement for senior talent as well as for emerging skill-sets and thinking.”
