Financial Services Employment Screening


Canary Wharf, London.The Financial Services industry in the United Kingdom is arguably one of the most important to the UK economy with an estimated gross value of over £119 billion in 2017, circa 6.5% of total economic output, as detailed by Parliament.


Being so important to the UK’s overall economy, with previous financial crises still in society’s collective memory, and the ongoing issue of bad advice or even financial scams offered to the general public, the requirement of regulation in the finance sector is imperative.


With a history of over 2 decades working with recruitment companies and employers in the financial services industry, the founders of Manacor International Ltd have built a wealth of knowledge of these regulations and compliance requirements specific to employing staff in the UK’s finance sector.


As we work with some of the largest brokerage houses and financial institutions supplying retail investment advice we are focused on screening candidates for the CF30 Customer function so that they are in compliance with FCA regulations.
