Delivery Consultant / Researcher – Quant Recruitment (London & New York)

Competitive Base Salary + Commission
London or New York

This is a great opportunity to join a rapidly expanding Quant Recruitment desk within one of London’s leading technical recruitment firms.

We work with the leading systematic buy-side trading firms across Europe and the US, from senior portfolio managers to entry level quant researchers. The candidates we work with are some of the smartest minds in the world!

We’re experts in our fields! Adam Barnett has 15+ years of experience and Alexander Yepifanov is an ex quant with deep market knowledge – you’ll be learning from the best!

Unlike most search firms, we actively encourage researchers to meet with clients and work on the full 360 process. We push for them to be promoted to consultant level as soon as they’re ready and encourage juniors to step up and take ownership of clients.

We are a highly collaborative business and you will be fully integrated into, and supported by, the Quant and Data Science Recruitment team and the wider business at Durlston Partners.

  • Positive, kind, and humble
  • Emotionally intelligent and a team player

  • Ambitious and money motivated
  • Ability to accept constructive criticism as part of learning and take action immediately
