In the world of finance, finding quality talent is a high priority, and KBW has been matching firms and other financial enterprises with top-caliber candidates since 1983. Both employers and job seekers trust our financial services recruiters to understand their unique hiring needs and career goals — and we can’t wait to help you, too.

How We Deliver

Our award-winning team of financial services staffing experts is here to help you find exactly what you’re looking for, no matter what kind of employment best meets your needs. We have extensive experience filling the following placement types:

Temporary & Contract Placement

We place talent for a fixed amount of time or for a specific task or job. Temporary employees are considered associates of the employers, while contract workers are not.

Temporary-to-Direct Hire Placement

We place talent on a short-term basis to see how they fit in a role before the employer extends a permanent offer.

Direct-Hire Placement

We place professionals who are intended to become full-time employees and go on the company payroll. These employees are eligible for benefits.

What our clients say

“A true partner to our staffing needs with an in-depth understanding of what we need. Not just a vendor, but an extension of our company.”

Christina | Client

“I have worked with agencies for many years and KBW was the first who actually listened to what I was looking for in an assignment and delivered it. Also, KBW always felt like I was part of something larger and I have been proud to represent them.”

Roberta | Candidate

“Overall great experience! Despite what I expected to be a difficult and competitive hiring climate for Accounting Manager/Controller candidates, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and volume of candidates that Steve produced. Of the 4 interviewed, all could have done the job, and at least 3 would have been great fits with my firm.”

Paul | Client

“I had never used a recruiter before and KBW made my first experience a great one. I was helped through every step; creating a resume, defining what I was looking for, setting up interviews, and making sure I was set up for success from the very beginning. The job I now have because of KBW is my dream job and I couldn’t be happier looking toward my future.”

Tamika | Candidate

“I could not be more pleased with the candidate KBW provided us with. Top notch service through the temp to permanent placement. I highly recommend KBW for your staffing needs.”

Heidi | Client

“I was treated by everyone at KBW with professionalism and respect. My recruiter kept constant contact with me, and was interested in my personal well being. I would recommend anyone to work with KBW Financial Staffing & Recruiting.”
