FinTech and Financial Services Recruitment Specialists

Who We Are

We are a specialist FinTech, Blockchain and Financial Services recruitment consultancy. We have been helping clients attract, hire and retain staff across all areas from technology to finance. By being specialists in our sectors, we are able to use our deep and active networks of professionals to quickly match the best profiles with great job opportunities.

What We Do

We deliberately work on a small number of assignments allowing us the time to deeply search for talent for your business. By partnering with an excellent client base including Brexit Financial Services firms setting up here, domestic FinTech companies at various stages and established multinationals, we are able to present compelling career opportunities to industry professionals.


Having worked with Paul previously, we reengaged with Top Tier for a key senior hire – VP Partnerships. Paul delivered a very targeted shortlist of potential candidates who not only matched our technical requirements but were a great ‘fit’ for us as a business which is vital for us. The pool of candidates was such that we ultimately made two senior hires from the initial engagement. We have since continued to work with Top Tier and have found them to be extremely professional, efficient and importantly, really care about what they do. It is clear that Paul and the team have a real passion for partnering with clients.

- David Heath, CEO & Founder,

"My experience with Top Tier Recruitment has been extremely positive. They are prompt and very pleasant in communication, extremely professional and helpful. In the booming Technology market, it is getting harder to find reliable recruitment advisers who are professional while pleasant, who care for quality and who understand both, clients and candidates, perfectly. Paul and Laura really know their area of expertise and they've been fantastic to work with from the start."

- Katarina Paucova, Technical Recruiter, Ammeon

If you are looking for a role in the Traditional Financial Sector or the emerging world of Fintech then definitely reach out and see what Top Tier Recruitment have to offer. Even though they are a new company they have a wealth of knowledge in this ever-expanding field. In recent times I dealt with Laura Smyth who I found to be both personable and professional. On a very basic level, they return phone calls promptly, give regular application progress updates and THEY PAY ON TIME!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Top Tier Recruitment as a recruitment agency for an I.T. Contractor.

“I worked with Top Tier Recruitment and secured my new role as QA Engineer with their help. I found them to be very professional, responsive and overall great to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. They are more of a specialist agency and work with an impressive client base.”

- Laurence Canny, QA Engineer

I have worked with Paul for over ten years and he has always demonstrated a detailed knowledge of our business and an understanding of the type of candidate being sought for each role. This combined with a thorough screening process has resulted in us only meeting candidates that closely matched the brief, resulting in an efficient hiring process.

- Ian Kilcullen - CIO - Key Capital Private

Our first time working with Top Tier and won’t be our last. Top Tier delivered a shortlist of high calibre candidates who met our functional requirements but were also eager to challenge themselves in a small & rapidly growing company. Top Tier delivers for clients by understanding the stresses of hiring (employer & employee) and streamlines the recruitment process for each, making them very employee & employer friendly.

- Danny Murphy, Director - EZOps Ireland

“I cannot recommend Top Tier Recruitment highly enough; Paul and his team have assisted me and KBI over the years in hiring quality candidates, all of which have been long term investments to the success of the firm. The most impressive thing about TTR is that they listen to the needs of their clients and don’t “overload” with candidate CVs. It would appear that the approach is very much to tailor the solution to the specific requirement of the client and the end result means we acquire a resource that ticks all of our boxes. I like work with TTR because they are not pushy or aggressive in their approach to closing the sale. It’s exactly this reason why I would return again and again because I know that if Paul can deliver what I need, he certainly will be true to his word”

- Elaine Barry, HR, KBI Global Investors
