Building Partnerships


"Having spent the last 12 years as a development manager in both the investment banking and hedge fund industry I know how important it is to hire only the very best developers. Good developers are strong computer scientists, with engineering flair and excellent interpersonal skills. However, developers like this are notoriously hard to find, and land. Somehow, Durlston Partners have been able to deliver this profile for me time after time and with very high offer acceptance ratio. This is an extraordinary agency run by the most talented head hunter in the market. Ultra professional, no fuss, a minimal screening overhead and super high quality candidates. This is a very different agency from the rest of the pack and a long term relationship that adds massive value to me as a hiring manager."
