GAP Talent I International Recruitment Specialists


GAP Talent specialises in contingent and search assignments within the financial arena.

We believe that the business our client is in, is the business that we are in, and we look to partner with our clients aiming to achieve a long-term positive impact on our clients’ companies. The people we place must improve the organisation and our clients have come to know that we only represent the best.



Although the client’s contact with us is with one particular consultant, an entire team works on each assignment. All are trained on an ongoing basis in the latest recruitment techniques, interviewing skills, selection criteria, and reference checking.


GAP Talent is a market-leading bespoke recruitment service occupying a position between large agencies and executive search companies. We provide a personalised management consulting service, and candidates based on expert market knowledge.


We are backed by a research team with a state-of-the-art database which refines our ability to identify outstanding candidates. All resources are applied, including persistent advertising, to ensure that the client is presented with ideal selections in the required field.


GAP Talent predominantly provides recruitment services for the local market, but due to high demand we search internationally for sources of specialist skills in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Europe, Australia, South Africa, and the Middle East.


Our credo is to add significant value to businesses and careers and we have the greatest respect for confidentiality, which we guarantee, to both candidates and clients. To read our Privacy Policy please see link in our website footer.

We have had phenomenal success with GAP Talent over the last 24 months"
"The calibre of candidates put forward has been excellent, which has led to offer, conversion and retention rates far above average. I attribute the majority of this to the quality of Ian, Tony and the team, and processes at GAP Talent, where they take the time to understand our business needs and put quality ahead of quantity. That said, even with short notice, GAP Talent have been able to fulfil all our needs, no matter how demanding in terms of numbers or locations, showing innovation in their approach to attracting the highest calibre candidates in the UK and abroad. Thank you GAP Talent, for all your support.”

They were quick to get back to me and always kept me informed.
“I contacted GAP Talent as they had helped recruit fairly challenging roles at my previous employer. They were quick to get back to me and always kept me informed regarding progress and the CV’s sent were a good fit. Ironically we ended up promoting someone internally at the time. Three months later we did recruit through GAP Talent and from three CV’s sent we offered someone who four years later is still with the business and has progressed into middle management. I found the service to be attentive and focused and while it's easy to get distracted in the day to day activities, GAP Talent were good at gently nudging me to keep the process moving and we had our desired result.”
