The banking sector in recent years has undergone a significant transformation. External factors (to include increased regulation and compliance, and a focus on meaningful customer service, especially through online and mobile channels) have combined with internal factors (which include a heightened requirement for stakeholder management skills and the ability to break down silos) to change the face of banking. It has also changed what banks require in their senior and specialist personnel.

With offices in the key financial centres, Hanover Search Group has the networks, expertise and the reach to access international talent pools on its clients’ behalf.
