“Jonathan is a recruiter who does not regard you as a number but a person with skills and talent. He puts you forward for roles that you can do and has extensive contacts in Financial Services Compliance.

I have known Jonathan for well over ten years and suitably assured that he will put your best interests at heart”

Harry Aranha – Compliance Consultant – January 2019

“I’ve worked with Jonathan for well over a decade, I’ve always found him to be diligent and professional in his dealings with me even when his requirements and my availability have not coincided.

Whenever we speak he takes the time to update his records.

Feedback is succinct and to the point which is always useful.  As a contractor, Jonathan is on my list of ‘go to’ people when looking for my next assignment.  I have no hesitation in recommending his services”

Ian Ashleigh – Compliance Consultant – November 2018

“I have known Jonathan Banjo of AJB Executive Search professionally for several years and have found his help and advice within the compliance recruitment sphere invaluable. Since moving into the the contracting space, Jonathan has kept me appraised of relevant opportunities and helped me secure my present contract. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of AJB to any candidate seeking a career move or client seeking to hire candidates within the regulatory space”.

Barrie Douce – Compliance Consultant – March 2018

“It has been a pleasure to work with Jonathan. He managed to secure me a great contract role within 7 days, with a top asset management firm. He scheduled all the interviews promptly and was excellent in replying to my emails and phone calls. His professionalism, personality and recruitment knowledge make him one of the best headhunters I’ve come across in the industry. I would highly recommend Jonathan to all clients and candidates”.

Akin Karabacak – Compliance Manager – February 2018

“I first reached out to Jonathan end of 2015 for a position in the UK.  The first video call was all about knowing who I am. He kept in touch with me regularly since then until a suitable position opened, which happened in the summer 2017 when an international Bank was looking for a representative in France. The whole application process felt both professional and personalized: a written guide on how to prepare interviews was made available, engaging discussions preceded each interview and follow-up feedback calls ensued, salary negotiations were perfectly coordinated.  Jonathan was there all along, effectively being your consultant on your side. He even went the extra mile in meeting me at the train station when I had to attend 2 interviews in London over the weekend. The exceptionality of AJB is that Jonathan knows both candidates and employers in depth, to a point that goes beyond a resume matching a job description, he matches personalities and work culture, which I believe is the basis for a successful work cooperation. Thanks to Jonathan and AJB whom I recommend highly!”

René-Laurent Alciator – Head, French Representative Office & Global Account Manager – January 2018

“Jonathan was first recommended to me through a previous employer who had been impressed with his market knowledge. After an initial phone conversation where we discussed my career goals, he put me forward for a great role, which suited my background and skills and was the very first position I applied for via AJB. Following an interview request, he took the time to coach me through the process and offered invaluable tips and advice to help me secure the position. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jonathan as a recruiter with a personal approach and extensive industry expertise”

AK – Complicance Manager – November 2017

“Jonathan Banjo of AJB has been very personal and attentive regarding my recent job search (which commenced in September 2017) and made everything possible for me to feel prepared when going through a number of interviews. Jonathan forwarded my CV for 1 position only and I was successful with my application. Jonathan was professional, kind and organised throughout the interview process and is enthusiastic about providing added value to his clients and candidates. I would recommend Jonathan as a trustworthy individual that provides a quality professional service for any candidates seeking career opportunities within Compliance”

Yves Elbaz – Head of Asset Management Compliance – October 2017

“I sought Jonathan’s assistance in kicking off my career in compliance in the summer of 2017, having graduated from university without a finance-based degree, or any relevant experience. What I did have was passion and interest, and he took it upon himself to find me a position, providing me with invaluable assistance both prior to, and during, the interview process – with several phone calls and then practice interviews over Skype prior to each interview. The first firm he put me forward to, I got the job at, which is testament not only to his tireless and personalised help, but also the fact that he cares about those whom he’s helping – something that can’t be said for all recruitment consultants”

Emily Piper – Compliance Associate – September 2017

“AJB approached me first in February 2016, when I was looking for a new position in compliance. I spoke to Jonathan Banjo and after a brief discussion about my requirements and a personal meeting, Jonathan arranged an interview for me shortly after. The preparation was fantastic as Jonathan practiced the interview process on Skype with me. Although I was not successful in this particular role, when the next suitable role came up a few weeks later, we were in touch again and another interview was arranged. Jonathan provided me with all the necessary information and was really helpful throughout the 2 stage interview process.

I was offered and accepted the position and most pleased with the salary package Jonathan was able to negotiate on my behalf. I’ve registered with many recruitment agencies, but AJB is certainly one of the best in terms of professionalism, availability and support throughout the recruitment process.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan and AJB to candidates seeking career opportunities”
