Nicola and Russell are both a credit to the recruitment industry and their professionalism is of the highest level I have experienced."

“Nicola is the first person I connect with when I have a new role as she has always referred high quality candidates who are well matched to the role. She will take the time to discuss the requirements with me and to identify the key criteria. She also understands that soft skills are very important and will look for candidates that will bring a new dimension to the existing team”.​

Candidate Testimonials

"Both Nicola and Russell have impressed me immensely with their professionalism and experience. In a sales driven industry it's nice to come across genuine people who are more interested in building a long term collaboration than a quick one-off sale. It goes without saying that my first port of call when looking for a role or even finding out about the market is a call to them. I am delighted that they are both now starting a new venture and looking forward to working with Vertus Partners on future projects."

Senior C# Developer - Tier 1 Investment Bank

"I know I can rely on Russell to look for roles that are the right match for my skills and experience and to actively represent me to the hiring client. He makes sure he thoroughly understands the requirements of the role and can accurately communicate these to me. He has a wide network of contacts and is often the first to be aware of new opportunities."

Program Manager - Front Office Risk, Investment Bank

"I decided to take a sabbatical for a few months, which unfortunately coincided with a halt on hiring in financial services. As a senior candidate, I found it difficult to get back into the market. Nicola took the time to assess my skills and line-up the perfect role, which turned out to be a brilliant outcome for both myself and my new employer."

Senior Manager - Financial Services Change

"I’ve known Russell Rose, a Director with Vertus Partners, professionally for eight years. During this time he’s found me work with three different organisations in the financial sector and I’m currently working in a role that he found for me at a Tier 1 Investment Bank. I’ve had regular contact with Russell throughout the time that I’ve known him and have always found him to be highly professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with."
