Who We Are

Burdett Partners is a specialist search firm that is dedicated to the Quantitative Investment market.

The ability to find clarity in data is paramount to business success in all industries but is particularly pertinent to quant finance. Despite this, the recruitment process that supports the industry remains opaque and unnecessarily complex. At Burdett Partners, we aim to keep it simple by providing clarity through expertise and transparency.

Technology has revolutionised recruitment in the last 10 years and will continue to do so. Perhaps the most significant impact is the exponential increase in the network and reach of recruiters. Instead of this leading to improvement of the service provided by recruitment firms, it has often led to a dilution of quality. We believe that building a network means building relationships, not numbers on a database or social media connections.

Many industries outside of recruitment have already seen a movement away from generic, franchised businesses. There has been an increase in quality led independent businesses that prioritise relationships and ethics ahead of short term revenue targets. These companies have customer satisfaction levels that big multinationals dream of. Why can't this happen to recruitment too?

We know recruitment or headhunting firms are never going to be trendy. We don't make craft beer or bespoke bikes; we don't design clothes or develop apps. However, the same principle of prioritising quality of service is, to us, even more pertinent in the recruitment process. We cut through the noise to provide you with the clarity you need to make informed decisions.
