Dominic was referred to me as the best in the business.

I needed to find risk and compliance staff. My experience corroborates precisely that. Thorough, encyclopedic market knowledge and execution orientated.

Hugo van Vredenburch Non Executive Director, TMF Group

Danos Consulting offered an excellent Interim Head of Compliance as a solution whilst undertaking our challenging permanent search mandate.

Danos Consulting really listened to our needs, parachuting in a candidate with the right technical skill set and personality. They really understood the DNA of our business which enabled them to provide support effectively when working to tight onboarding deadlines.

General Counsel, Niche Asset Management Firm

Danos Associates offered much more than simply sourcing candidates. 

They helped frame the scope of the search, giving context as to where we could search for our candidate pool and provided a commercial view of the labour market in this field and what we could expect… The shortlist of candidates we received was of a very high standard. Each candidate had been looked at critically.

Nicola Swann HR Director

Danos Associates spend a lot of time getting to know your team and the culture, which makes it easier when new staff join the business.  

In credit risk often the candidate pools have the same skill sets, however there are elements that the CV miss out. The Danos team work tirelessly to understand the skills levels of all candidates and most importantly, they get us quality candidates we can close and bring on board quickly.
