Creating a large tech team for a Global Investment Bank

Key achievements

  • ​35 consultants recruited within six weeks
  • New team onboarded using a bespoke training plan
  • 48% of new recruits were female
  • 34 of 35 consultants retained in this hyper-competitive market



Our client needed to grow their team across the credit risk space rapidly, but they didn’t have the expertise to recruit or train talent themselves.  

That’s when they came to us.​ We had just four weeks to help identify, train and integrate 35 software engineers into their development team. We also needed to find a way to avoid the high levels of staff turnover impacting many business in this competitive market. ​To complicate matters, the team was based in Camberley, Surrey, a world away from the bright lights of the City.



It didn’t take Albany Beck long to assemble the talent the client was looking for.

Equally important, a bespoke training programme ensured the new team members were ready to make a difference from day one. We assigned an Engagement Manager to check everyone was meeting the needs of our client and that they were being offered the career progression required to keep them loyal.



Our strategy helped the bank build a tech team that could support the ongoing growth of the business. 35 people (48% female) were recruited within six weeks and smoothly onboarded.​

The project involved rapid creation of a bespoke Java training programme to solve a critical skills shortage and provide career development for new starters.​ The project was successfully completed with only one person leaving before 18 months and 94% of new recruits moving to permanent roles with the client after that.
