mthree adds to its own talent pool

The emerging technology talent specialist mthree has made a number of senior hires as part of continued growth which saw it report record revenues in 2018 and look set to go beyond that with revenues of around £39m the following year.

mthree, which works with leading fintech companies and global investment banks, now employs more than 600 staff across four continents.

Rebecca Roycroft joins in the newly-created position of Client Services Director after a career in which she has held senior positions at the Adecco Group and Harvey Nash.

Rebecca will lead an EMEA client services team created as part of the business’s restructure of its front office sales and talent teams across both EMEA and North America, in order to improve client relations and sourcing of talent.

Jenifer Habib and Barbara Goodwin have also joined as Client Services Leads, having previously worked at businesses such as Hays, LMA and Mansion House Consulting.

The restructure has created a dedicated EMEA business development team headed up by Anthony Ginn, where he is responsible for mthree’s commercial development across the EMEA region.

mthree sources and supplies tech talent across the finance sector, from growing FinTech brands to global investment banks (as well as government and healthcare), taking a collaborative approach to identify the skills its partner businesses most need to grow.

In order to ensure a smooth fit, mthree trains and carefully embeds the candidates it sources into its clients’ teams for 24 months, after which they can become full-time employees.

Rebecca Roycroft said: “Over the coming years every company, from financial services to eCommerce firms, to those working across the public sector, will need skilled technology talent. mthree therefore has a fantastic opportunity to be at the centre of this development, acting as a trusted partner that helps businesses attract and retain the right talent, first time. The cost of getting it wrong is not to be underestimated.”

Alex Headley, CEO, said: “This restructure will hugely benefit our work in the UK and worldwide in terms of our offering to clients, and standardising our processes; both of which are crucially important for sustainable growth. Through this, we’re giving ourselves a fantastic foundation to grow upon both now and in the years ahead.

“While businesses need to tap into the opportunities that our increasingly-digitalised society brings, sourcing and, crucially, retaining the right talent can often prove difficult. Our recent development will allow us to better service this need for our partners, helping them to truly future-proof their businesses against whatever the coming years may bring.”
