We’re passionate about people. We bring passion and enthusiasm in all that we do.
We base our strategy on one key foundation, that no working environment is the same. Therefore, it’s impossible to think that you can source people for your business, regardless of specific technical or financial skills, in the same way. You have to know how they tick, their passions and ultimately what drives them.

Every candidate we source undergoes a bespoke psychometric assessment to indicate their passions and drives, so we can discover the environments they will thrive in. This allows us to know exactly who to place at which client and for which role, in order to match up their strengths and what drives them. Finding people with common beliefs, values and attitudes is the key to sourcing the best talent for each role and driving each business forward.

Our ability to thrive under short timescales and pressured environments, enable us to be specialists in delivering the best talent in both the IT and Financial markets.

We are quite simply, problem solvers. Our passion, enthusiasm and drive are what set us apart. It’s the little things, it’s the daily monotony and consistency. Ultimately it’s about loving the process which in turn delivers the best results.

We are heavily process driven and take pride in the business transformation processes we have built in order to provide an unrivalled level of service to both our clients and candidates. We take pride in sourcing talent which can thrive in the specific working environments to each individual client and candidate. Because it’s not about us. It’s about you.

What they’re saying

  • AEJ have been very important to us at Onyx as we’ve gone on a sharp growth trajectory into areas outside our original business model. All the hiring and support that is required to facilitate a growth transition is no easy task and we simply couldn’t have achieved what we have without the AEJ team. We have an ever-changing and ongoing transformation project, which the business is undertaking across a 3-5 year period, needing staff within Tech, Sales, Trading, Broking and Consulting. We feel very strongly about the right attitude, in particular resilience, as the leading trait to hire for Onyx employees and AEJ took a very deep dive into our business culture to understand what this meant and continue to produce results in a period of time I’ve never seen before, despite working with recruiters for over 8 years. AEJ is a standout recruitment company in both professionalism and emotional intelligence. Recommend highly.

  • With reference to AEJ, I found Jordan helpful in understanding the specifics of the brief that I provided. It was important to find candidates that had a specific skill sets in order to be able to hit the ground running. In this regard the brief was met and a good candidate was found for the role. I appreciated the fact that CVs were reviewed against the JD prior to sending through, meaning quality over quantity.

  • Working in financial services for over 10 years and having worked with over 20 recruiters; I now use 1 – AEJ Consulting. Their ability to understand our culture and marry that with appropriate candidates was scarily good and their ability to scale teams of 20+ headcount was exceptional. Having a dedicated client manager on hand at all times made, what can be an arduous administrative headache, a really smooth process.

  • I wanted to confirm that the recently hired Technical Project Manager has turned out to be a great employee and so, therefore, credit must be given to the service and support you gave me through the recruitment process. You provide great support and ensured we filled the role with the correctly qualified candidate. If I have need for further Project Management roles to be filled I will come directly to you.

  • During my career I have been working with many recruitment companies, but AEJ is distinctively different! The team are experts in providing a “white glove” tailored service and have a can-do approach, which is so refreshing and hard to come across in the recruitment industry. Partnering with AEJ has so far been extremely successful, they provided us with candidates for a new part of the business, where getting candidates through the door was extremely time-sensitive. We hired 85% of the candidates that they submitted to us for a specialist, large scale Sales Division. We are also continuously partnering with them on our Junior Trader recruitment, which has historically been one of the most challenging roles to fill and we didn’t believe working with an external agency could ever be successful (due to the highly specific recruitment strategy that we pursue with those type of candidates). However, AEJ has proven to be the only agency that we entrust to work exclusively together with us on that also. They have also been extremely responsive any time/day of the week, providing a '24 Hour Service'. If there was an urgent last-minute change that needed to be incorporated, they have the ability to understand our business needs and implement the change, which is something that makes them highly competitive within their market. You always feel that they have the best interest of our firm as their main focus. Therefore, I would personally highly recommend anyone that is looking for a truly bespoke service, with a high success rate, to reach out the AEJ Team
