Background at Jefferies
Jefferies is a mid-sized investment bank HQ’d in the US, they are the world’s only independent full-service global investment banking firm focused on serving clients for over 55 years. It is focused on creating long-term value for shareholders through their full-service platform providing a full range of investment banking, sales, trading, research and strategy across the spectrum of equities, fixed income and foreign exchange, as well as wealth management in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
Jefferies approached us requiring assistance targeting niche technology specific people to join their organisation and core tech teams to develop their software systems to a higher level. These positions were mainly in the UK and were a mixture of contract and permanent roles. Jefferies needed a recruitment partner who would work closely with them, listen to their requirements to find the perfect fit for the positions.
By working closely with senior management at Jefferies we established a relationship where we are approached every time a new role needed to be filled. Jefferies were able to say exactly what they were looking for and we were able to utilise our skills and experience to fulfil the briefs. A combination of trust, knowledge and access to the network makes us the perfect professional partner.
Jefferies is a constantly evolving and growing company and Oakstone will work alongside them to fuel success which is enhanced by our growing relationship. The further requirements from Jefferies will be organic as there is no limit to their growth and we aim to have a continuous relationship.
