Long Term Supply for a Global Wealth Management Platform Provider


Highams is a long-term preferred supplier to a global platform provider within the funds, wealth management, pensions and retirement sectors.

The business won a new client which is one of the most prestigious wealth management businesses in the UK and initiated a major re-platforming programme. 
Aside from being one of the largest implementation programmes in their history, they also had the added challenge of recruiting specialist wealth management resources at a time when there were other similar programmes taking place in the market. 


Working as a trusted partner to their recruitment team we were able to gain an understanding of the business need, proactively talent pool the specialist resources needed ahead of time, saving the client valuable time to hire when the roles went live. 

We successfully sourced and provided both contract and permanent resources for this delivery, hiring into a both technology transformation and business change positions. Highams strong personal network and in-depth knowledge of the wealth and platforms sector enabled us to offer an effective and tailored recruitment solution to the business. 


  • Placed 65 people across a range of skill sets, including business analysis, project/programme management, proposition design and technology delivery. 

  • Successfully recruited teams across 6 UK office locations as part of two separate platform implementations being managed simultaneously by the client .
