Senior Architects need to possess technical excellence, strong leadership and exceptional attention to detail. And although decision-making, methodology, and strategy are integral to Architecture roles, the very best professionals also master communication and stakeholder management.
Our consultants have many of these skills and are able to own specific verticals while simultaneously building relationships that explore the needs of employers and candidates. Find out more about your Architecture specialist below.
I joined Caspian One in 2012, working from our office based on the south-coast of England. Going from the town I grew up into the bright lights of NYC, the dynamic metropolis of Toronto and the diverse city of Montreal, I feel truly lucky to have witnessed so much growth in the FinTech markets I work in, as-well-as playing a part in our clients' success. Recruitment really is a way of life, and you get out what you put in! For me, it doesn’t get old – each day is different, each challenge is different, and with the right attitude, knowledge and dedication along the way it becomes a career to be proud of.
I have found that one of the most important factors to being successful in recruitment, is to have a genuine active interest in the vertical you work in. I think my candidates and clients enjoy working with me because they know I have taken the time to understand the Java language, including the technologies and principles that go hand in hand. I stay up-to-date with upcoming releases, the differences between them, and the effect this will have to development on a daily basis. This has enabled me to understand, meet and exceed hiring expectations on both a contractual and permanent basis - building open, honest and trusting working relationships between my candidates and clients.
Since joining Caspian One I have learnt that recruitment is about much more than simply matching a skill-set to a job spec. It's about building trust and relationships with clients and candidates alike. Being transparent and keeping everyone informed throughout the process is key to this, but for me, it all starts with actively listening from that first phone call or exchange. Being bilingual has been a great advantage.
I'm a member of Caspian One's North American FinTech division, with my main technological focus being Java development. Since joining I've experienced how important it is to fully understand your market, and what your candidates and clients' needs are. An aim of mine is to continuously build my network, as every new candidate and client you work with brings with them important knowledge on the current market. The more you know, the better you are at helping those you work with!
The area of recruitment I specialise in is Java, from intermediate levels to senior, the roles include both contract and full-time positions within the FinTech area. I got into recruitment after I learned that I really enjoy helping people grow and develop. I thought the best way to do this was to help people find the jobs they really want. I’ve done a bit of travelling since I left university, visiting many places in Europe, as well as spending time travelling the length of Vietnam before I started at Caspian One. This provided me with an appreciation of life and to take your opportunities when they become available. I believe recruitment consultants should always treat their candidates with respect and provide an enjoyable journey for whoever they are working with, putting them at ease and providing constant support to help people achieve their goals. Sometimes finding the right role can be hard to find and with people living busy lives, recruitment plays a big part in helping people achieve their goals.
