Dartmouth Partners, a leading European recruitment firm which specialises in placing Graduate to Director level staff in the financial services, corporate and legal sectors, has announced today the launch of its first international office in Frankfurt, Germany.
Dartmouth Partners has been operating in the German market but will now fully commit to the region and continue to develop its core private equity and investment banking practice, while broadening its relationships in the region with leading start-ups, corporates, and law firms.
Dartmouth Partners has been described as “one of the most disruptive, innovative businesses in the UK” by Real Business and recently ranked 7th in the UK’s top 100 start-ups. Dartmouth’s unique approach offers a ‘Classroom to Boardroom’ model, starting with elite graduates and building a network of rising stars and future leaders. This philosophy allows Dartmouth to create a deeper level of relationship with leading talent, while having access to a traditionally opaque candidate pool.
Dartmouth Partners Principal, Elena Barclay, has been working with both global and local private equity funds in the German market and will be leading Dartmouth Partners Frankfurt. She has placed top-tier candidates with some of the most reputable firms in the alternative investment space and will continue to work in both the UK and German offices while assisting with the build out of the Frankfurt team.
Elena comments: “Our innovative business model has historically adapted itself to the needs of the client and we plan to continue this consultative approach. We are already a dominant player in the UK in M&A and Private Equity. We welcome the opportunity to make our mark in Germany.”
Logan Naidu who was previously listed as one of the top 30 business leaders under 35 years old and has this year been listed as one of The Sunday Times / Debrett’s Top 500 most influential people in the UK, comments: “I am extremely excited by the launch of our first international office. The German market is relationship driven: people think and act long-term which fits neatly with our approach and business model. Too many firms act in a short-term manner and our approach has been well received. This is one of the many reasons we wanted to commit fully to the German market and establish a presence over here.”
