About us

So what does CMC Resourcing do that is so special?

CMC Resourcing has a vision and our vision is to build a business that cuts through all the smoke and mirrors of traditional recruitment and delivers measurable results for our financial services clients. We provide first class business and technology change candidates to financial services organisations throughout the UK and beyond.

We differentiate from our competitors and create value for our clients in the following ways:

  • Strength. Expertise – our knowledge is from a practical experience, we have all held senior roles in the industry and we implicitly understand the issue and impacts and instinctively know how to address them to the most optimal outcome. We have a ‘whole of market’ bench and with an associate model, we can always deliver.
  • Quality. Our interims and permanent candidates are all industry leaders.
  • Assurance. Our candidates are all referenced, formally and informally.
  • Integrity. Our reputation is built on results, trust and recommendations and we are passionate about our integrity in all respects.
  • Focus. This is all we do, which means our only objectives are your objectives. Our objective is a long-term partnership, not a short term gain.

We aim to:

  • Help our clients make their top line grow
  • Help our clients make their cost curve lower
  • Help our clients help their people know what they need to know
  • Help our clients make their technology really work for them
  • Help our client make sure the rules are enablers of their business
