We advise leading businesses on the key strategic challenge of our time; identifying, securing and retaining the best talent in the market. We are looking for hardworking, intelligent, sociable and competitive problem solvers who are excited about delivering for our clients across the globe.



We offer graduates an opportunity to join a rapidly expanding international executive search consultancy in our New York, Edinburgh or Dublin office. We partner with the world’s preeminent hedge funds and merchant trading platforms to identify, assess and secure investment, trading and analytics talent. H.W. Anderson’s unique environment combines the intellectual challenge and compensatory potential of top-tier management consulting with the dynamic, growth-oriented culture of a start-up.

The Role

What’s involved

The role of an executive search consultant is to identify exceptional talent that enables our client firms to build or maintain an edge over their competitors in the market. More often than not, our successful candidates have to be extracted and incentivized to leave leading platforms. A great search consultant develops the skills necessary to discern the difference between average and exceptional candidates and approaches each individual they engage with both empathy and an honest pragmatism that creates mutually beneficial scenarios for both clients and candidates alike.
