Welcome to Hays KYC , where we match talented professionals to the right organisations.

The Hays KYC recruitment team has been operating for 15 years either as part of our wider Financial Crime & Compliance coverage or as a wholly separate entity that it is today. Due to the volume of opportunities we were mandated with, we were one of the first agencies in the UK to create a team that is specifically dedicated to the KYC function.

Each one of our dedicated Consultants operates in a focused section of the market that means you will be speaking to a Consultant whose coverage is aligned to your business. We recruit both permanent and temporary positions across Investment Banking, Investment Management, Private and Wealth Management, Oil and Gas, Legal or Fin-tech.

Given that many of our clients are under pressure to deliver on KYC initiatives, we have developed a range of services to meet the needs of our clients quickly. As an example, operating under a Statement of Work agreement, Hays placed over 60 temporary workers with a major investment bank and completed the process within 2 months. Our Interim service regularly places senior KYC leaders on time-sensitive projects and our permanent team works on strategic assignments for clients that require deep technical expertise. In every case, we recognise the need to deliver in a timely and efficient manner.

As well as our standard delivery model, we also offer a range of services such as Search, bespoke Market Mapping, Salary Benchmarking and advice on recruitment planning.

Few recruitment agencies can offer the services, expertise and experience that the Hays KYC team offers.
