An easier way to manage your career
Since launch, the Hiring Circle platform has helped candidates gain access to relevant, interesting opportunities, and gain offers in roles from M&A to distressed debt to private equity. Registering is free and completely confidential.
How it Works
It's free and completely confidential. You'll gain access to roles on the buy and sell-side as well as further content to help you in your career decisions and interview preparation. To join you can be referred by an existing member or submit your details to a member of our team for review.
You'll receive alerts based on your experience and preferences so you'll instantly know the moment your ideal role is posted or when one of your preferred employers is hiring. We bring the market to you so even if you're travelling or swamped on a deal you won't miss out.
The platform allows you to confidentially ask a question about a role or ask a member of the highly experienced Hiring Circle team for advice. Then simply complete your profile, upload your CV and apply in a few clicks. We won't change or edit your application.
We're no ordinary job board. We don't stop at providing access to relevant opportunities, we help you navigate the market with bespoke content including employer insight, interview preparation and invaluable career advice from senior bankers and investment professionals.
FAQs for Candidates
What is Hiring Circle?
Hiring Circle is a specialist career platform providing its members with access to relevant job opportunities alongside expert career advice and insight. The platform hosts roles from funds, banks and advisory firms seeking to hire directly, as well as leading recruitment and search firms working on their behalf.
How does it differ from other job boards?
Hiring Circle is not a typical job board:
- We are highly specialised so your job searches aren’t diluted with other irrelevant roles and information.
- We are a membership only platform which mean the roles posted are not publicly viewable. One of the benefits of this is that organisations are happier to disclose more relevant information about the opportunity and recruitment firms are often comfortable to reveal their client so candidates benefit from transparency from the outset.
- We bring roles to life with videos detailed the role and giving insight into culture and career progression. If you want to know more, you can also anonymously ask a question or request a call with the role poster.
What kinds of roles will I find on Hiring Circle?
We cover roles across Investment Banking (M&A, Leveraged Finance, Capital Markets, Credit & Equity Research) and Alternative Asset Management (Private Equity, Credit Funds, Infrastructure and Real Estate) as well as roles in Strategy and Corporate Development.
Is Hiring Circle a recruitment firm?
No, Hiring Circle is not a recruitment firm. We are an online platform that hosts live roles and provides career advice and insights to candidates. We use technology to improve your experience but our team are former headhunters or industry professionals so we're on hand to help with any questions or advice if you need it.
How much does it cost?
Absolutely nothing. Hiring Circle is free for candidates to use and it's also completely confidential. Organisations pay to post positions.
Is it worth registering if I’m not looking?
Absolutely. Even if you’re not actively looking, having access to the platform is a great way to stay in touch with the market without having to find the time to speak with multiple head-hunters. Aside from access to the job board, you will also benefit from access to exclusive articles and insights, not all of which are available on the public site. If your dream role does arise, you’ll get to hear about it at the earliest opportunity. It’s not just a job site for the here and now, it’s a career platform designed to help you plan for your future career too.
Can employers view my profile?
No one can see your profile unless you apply for a job and then your application will be visible to that employer. You can be confident that you can browse opportunities in complete confidentiality.
How do I register?
Simply complete the registration form on the website which only takes a few minutes and a member of our team will review your application within a maximum of 48 hours (but often a lot sooner).
What if I need to contact someone?
You can contact a member of the Hiring Circle team who will be happy to assist you with any queries you may have about the platform or your application on our email address firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the person recruiting or hiring manager for specific roles directly when logged in.
Why did you set up Hiring Circle?
We felt there had to be a more efficient and effective way to attract and hire talent in the digital age and we also wanted to improve the candidate experience. We listening to what candidates wanted and what they thought was currently lacking. We launched Hiring Circle initially as as proof of concept – we wanted to offer candidates a transparent and efficient way to view opportunities without losing the valuable input that an experienced recruiter can bring. We were amazed by the quality of candidates that joined the platform and the positive feedback we received. However, we knew that to really bring the market to candidates, we needed to grow. Now, Hiring Circle posts financial services roles from leading recruitment firms, headhunters, in-house teams at leading institutions as well as smaller advisory firms and funds who are running their own processes.
