Emerging technology talent specialist mthree has made a string of senior hires as part of its continued growth.
mthree, which works with leading global investment banks and fintechs, now employs more than 600 staff across four continents. The new hires come after the business reported record revenues in 2018 and are on-track to go beyond that with revenues of c. £39m in 2019.
Rebecca Roycroft joins the team as Client Services Director - a newly-created position. Rebecca brings almost two decades worth of recruitment and management expertise to the team, having held influential senior positions at the Adecco Group and Harvey Nash.
Rebecca will lead the newly-established EMEA client services team at mthree. The department has been created as part of the business’s restructure of its front office sales and talent teams across both EMEA and North America, in order to improve client relations and sourcing of talent.
Jenifer Habib and Barbara Goodwin have both joined the business as Client Services Leads, having previously worked at businesses such as Hays, LMA and Mansion House Consulting.
The restructure has created a dedictated EMEA business development team headed up by Anthony Ginn, where he is responsible for mthree’s commercial development across the EMEA region.
Piers Fox has also been brought in as Director of Marketing to spearhead the global build out of the division. Piers has nearly 20 years’ experience in marketing across a number of international businesses, the majority of which have been global financial services companies.
The hiring is rounded off in the more senior area of our business focusing on Alumni Pro and Experts. Christian Turek and David Baker both join mthree as Talent Managers. They bring a raft of experience from various organisations which will be key to extend mthree’s reach in to the more senior experience levels of the technology talent sector. Christian’s multilinguistic skills will be invaluable as we expand across Europe.
mthree sources and supplies tech talent across the finance sector, from growing FinTech brands right the way through to global investment banks (as well as government and healthcare), taking a collaborative approach to identify the skills its partner businesses most need to grow.
In order to ensure a smooth cultural fit, mthree trains and carefully embeds the candidates it sources into its clients’ teams for 24 months, after which they can become their full-time employees. Additionally, it offers tailored training for its clients’ own employees, to enable them to retain their workforce and compete in an ever changing technology landscape.
Rebecca Roycroft, client services director at mthree, said: “Having spent most of my career managing and growing individuals, teams, and wider businesses, I’m thrilled to be bringing this experience to mthree as it looks to change the way that businesses source and retain the best tech talent.
“Over the coming years every company, from financial services to eCommerce firms, to those working across the public sector, will need skilled technology talent. mthree therefore has a fantastic opportunity to be at the centre of this development, acting as a trusted partner that helps businesses attract and retain the right talent, first time. The cost of getting it wrong is not to be underestimated.”
Alex Headley, CEO at mthree, said: “This restructure will hugely benefit our work in the UK and worldwide in terms of our offering to clients, and standardising our processes; both of which are crucially important for sustainable growth. Through this, we’re giving ourselves a fantastic foundation to grow upon both now and in the years ahead.
“While businesses need to tap into the opportunities that our increasingly-digitalised society brings, sourcing and, crucially, retaining the right talent can often prove difficult. Our recent development will allow us to better service this need for our partners, helping them to truly future-proof their businesses against whatever the coming years may bring.”
