NOT JUST ANOTHER
RECRUITMENT AGENCY

Stanford Black connects leading hedge funds, proprietary trading firms, investment banks, scientific research houses, big data analytics firms and ambitious tech start-ups with the highest calibre professionals at every level. 

We are a global leader in technology and trading recruitment firms; with all of the experience, resources and contacts you need to take full advantage of today’s fast moving business environments.

We founded Stanford Black when we saw that traditional recruitment methods were dead. Companies are adopting the same tactics and styles used over 20 years ago. We pride ourselves on being different and changing the face of recruitment at all touch points in the process.

After many years of working for large recruitment firms in the City, we became disillusioned with the industry and knew it was time to make a change. We were disheartened by the all-too-common attitudes of making quick-wins at any cost and the old-school mentality of the hard-core sell, when it simply isn’t right for the candidate or client.

BEING THE BEST

We created Stanford Black to be the best and therefore we only work with the best.  The best candidates, the best opportunities, the best technology teams and the best recruiters; this drives our industry-leading conversion rate and consistently wins us top-performer status amongst our valued clients.

We connect leading hedge funds, proprietary trading firms, investment banks, scientific research houses, big data analytics firms and ambitious tech start-ups with the highest calibre professionals at every level.  We source only the best candidates from an array of backgrounds and institutions and as a result, we boast a hugely diverse and unique candidate pool which harbours the most sought after and niche skill sets. This enables us to offer our clients a true competitive advantage and is Stanford Black’s real point of difference.

At Stanford Black we don't just pride ourselves as Head-hunters, we hire and train the best businesspeople who have the determination to make their dreams a reality. We are a visionary firm with the drive, ambition and mentality to win individually, together and for each other. Recruitment is typically an individual profession with old school techniques; what sets us apart is our unique and open environment which allows our diverse backgrounds and natural strengths to flourish as a team. At our core we share the same moral compass; we remain humble, resilient, and ambitious with our focus on being one of the best Technology Headhunting firms in the world.

We strive to exceed expectation and our aim is always to be the number one choice for all our clients. We are passionate about technology and understanding technology is key to our success.

OUR CORE VALUES
Despite all our success, top supplier awards to global organisations and record-breaking billing quarters, it’s the culture of our business that we are most proud of. Our values are at the heart of every decision and every hire we make. As a team we support, inspire, elevate, and trust each other through the good and bad times and we all understand that winning is great, but winning as a team is even better. Put simply, if you really harbour our values and want to work with like minded people, we think we’re the best firm in London for you!

WINNING MENTALITY

We have a "never say die" attitude; a constant drive to make it happen.

Knowing that every challenge is just part of the learning process and not letting the setbacks define you.

INSPIRATION

Actions of inspiration are drawn from the small day to day wins just as they are from one great act.

It doesn't matter what level you are in the company; from someone on their first day to the most senior person in the room.

Leading by example and emitting an energy that people feed off and look to replicate.

ELEVATING PEOPLE

Elevation unifies individuals to achieve the vision and goals that we share, but never at the detriment of others.

We celebrate successes but also notice when others need a kind word, a friend, or advice.

At Stanford Black, we rise by lifting those around us.

Trust transcends everything we do.

 

We have created an environment of openness and honesty.

This allows us to put faith in each other as we all work towards shared goals, both professionally and personally.
