An opportunity to be number one

First, a little bit about our company.

Core-Asset Consulting was created in 2005. Our ambition was to build a recruitment company that puts people before profit, service before sales, and ethics above all.

Initially we made our reputation within Scotland’s asset management sector. But the success of our model has allowed us to expand rapidly.

We have developed into the wider financial services market, built an accounting and finance team, established an interim, temporary and contract division, launched a vetting and on-boarding service, and expanded into the legal sector.

We’re now considered by many companies to be their number one recruitment partner. You could be number one, too.

A true expert in your field

So, what makes us different?

We are not a sales-based company. We go beyond the transactional, target-driven approach offered by many other recruitment companies. Our consultants do not make sales calls. The only target we have is placing the right people in the right roles.

This allows our consultants time to focus on what really matters - our clients and our candidates. We’re not interested in hammering round pegs into square holes. We’re committed to matching people’s career aspirations with real-life job opportunities.

The service-led approach, combined with a structured programme of training and development, gives our consultants the opportunity to become true experts within their chosen field.

Collaborative and challenging

At Core-Asset, we like to think we’ve created a business which blends the best attributes of a large organisation with those of a boutique company.

We have a strong infrastructure, professional environment and a great range of staff benefits. But we also foster a culture of direct communication, innovation and team spirit.

This has helped us build an environment that is creative, collaborative but also challenging, an environment in which you can reach your full potential.

Offering true work-life balance

Working within a high-performance culture doesn’t have to mean working long hours. We have high demands and exacting standards, but it’s not often these extend beyond office hours.

Our philosophy is that happy, well-rested and rounded people make for productive and enthusiastic professionals.

That’s why at Core-Asset we believe passionately in the benefits of a real work-life balance.

Progression and support

The success of our business is built on the expertise and knowledge of our consultants. And the future of our business depends on it. That’s why we invest heavily in our people.

We are always looking for talented, high calibre individuals who thrive in a dynamic environment.

In return, we’ll offer you a clear, structured and progressive career path, supported by training and development and a strong mentoring culture.
