Meet our Founding Partner, Michael Muir

16 year Accounting & Finance Recruitment Experience

Thank you for visiting, taking the time to understand how Buy Side Recruitment can support you.

Finding career defining roles in ideally matched investment firms, or attracting top talent is not straightforward.  Complaints being it takes too long, and misunderstandings result in wasted time.

Fund Industries are vast and complex, Accounting technical and nuanced so it is a baffling ecosystem to understand.

In 2020 expectations of ‘external’ recruitment services are high, competing with direct hiring methods.  But unbeatable results occur when led by a hyper-specialist.  Focusing an inch wide and a mile deep.  Or more clearly on a single functional discipline, across closely related vertical markets.  And for a substantial period of time developing rich knowledge and unparalleled insights.

I aim to professionalise and innovate recruitment and delight the Fund Industry finance community!

Thank you to everyone I’ve worked with so far, and I look forward to collaborating with you in the future.

But don’t just take his word for it!

Here are what some of our clients have to say..
