HR Generalist Manager – High Frequency Trading Firm – Up to £60k + bonus

In a time when some crypto businesses are shrinking, there are only a few doing the exact opposite, with the balance sheet to make it happen.

During a recession, tech firms may adopt a more cautious approach to hiring. There’s an increased focus on cost-saving measures, and a shift towards hiring for roles that are deemed essential for the company’s immediate needs. In most cases, this means only hiring on the engineering and technology front.

Therefore, it takes a special type of firm to have the funding and the vision to continue growing its business with one of its first HR hires.


The company:

Durlston Partners are working with an Algo-Crypto Trading firm based in Hong Kong with an office in London. They utilise proprietary technology to satisfy a wide range of liquidity needs globally for almost 10 years. This firm are continuing to hire despite some challenges in the crypto space, a positive sign of their approach towards risk.
