We work with the Innovators and Disruptors of the FinTech world… 2017 has been a game-changer of a year for Ashmore Stark.
Launched in 2014, Ashmore Stark then joined the Triple Seven Group in November last year. In 2017, we planned to build out the team so that we could recruit across multiple disciplines within the FinTech ecosystem.
The initial focus for the business was Sales Recruitment, as this tapped into the experience of our Managing Director. Over the last three years, we’ve helped multiple clients scale their sales operations. However, over the course of 2017, the client demand for rockstar Developers and Tech-side team members increased. So, in response to the market, we launched our Tech team, giving us the ability to secure candidates for both Technology and Sales. The result is Ashmore Stark can now work with a more diverse range of clients, including FinTechs at an earlier stage of development, as they build out their product offering.
Strategic internal hires in 2017 included Hannah Thomson, who joined the business to head up Sales and Business Development, and Aaron Crosbie, who joined to head up the Technology team. International coverage quickly followed for Ashmore Stark; having previously focused on the London market, we end 2017 with clients, and active roles, in Europe, Asia and the US.
This growth has also seen us revise our recruitment strategy with our key clients. We now work in partnership with leading UK and international FinTech firms on long-term exclusive assignments. This has allowed us to build more durable relationships and secure rockstar candidates faster.
In 2018, Ashmore Stark will expand further, adding more consultants to the team. As our brand continues to grow, we’ll also be attending more events; we were invited to exhibit at London FinTech Week in 2017 and we’ll be back next year! You’ll also find us at London Blockchain Week in January. We are looking to expand our client base, both in London and internationally, offering strategic support and hiring solutions across all sectors of the FinTech industry, including AI, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, Payments, P2P lending, Robo-Advisory, and more.
Whether you’ve just closed your latest funding round, or need to make additional hires in line with your current team, we can help advise you on your growth plans, at any stage.
