The expert team at MW Recruitment is at your disposal.

The in-depth skills, experience and specific banking and financial services working history of the members of the MW Recruitment team are the most important and attractive part of the proposition we offer candidates and employers.

Ultimately it’s too easy for a recruitment consultancy to focus just on placing candidates without regard to how that placement helps the candidate’s long-term career goals or how that placement helps the employer client’s long-term commercial and professional objectives. This is why all of us at MW take such a pride personally in focusing on those two crucial factors.

Here’s the team at MW Recruitment.

Daniel Cohen - Director 
Daniel has an enviable reputation within the recruitment profession for being one of the leading recruiters in the banking and financial services profession.

He spent the early part of his career at recruitment consultancy Jonathan Wren and during his eighteen years there achieved renown by becoming their top billing consultant, billing more than a million pounds in fees in some years.

Daniel now heads the MW Recruitment team. He has worked across many product lines and job functions over the years and has focused particularly on recruiting people for back, middle and front office support and compliance/risk. The breadth of Daniel’s experience is continually broadening and he is highly regarded by employer clients and by candidates alike, both of whom respect his keen interest in their agenda and their priorities and the consultative approach he brings to the recruitment profession.
Malcolm Wood
Malcolm is a former broker, trader and salesman in the financial services industry. He has worked at Jonathan Wren and achieved many significant goals there, including being one of the highest billing consultants at the organisation. He has also been managing director of Hamilton Chase.

Malcolm brings a great depth of experience in the City of London to his recruitment consultancy professional work today. He started his career in the City in 1972, in the pre-Big Bang environment, as a stockjobber on the floor of the London Stock Exchange. Malcolm worked his way up to become the chief executive of Investec Bank. During his rise within this bank he was a broker, a trader, a salesperson and desk head.

Malcolm decided to change his career path into banking recruitment in the year 2000 in order to help candidates and client employers find the best match to their needs and to use his extensive network that he has built up over the years. Today, Malcolm is recognised as one of the most prominent and highly respected recruitment consultants in the City of London.
Gary Worpole

Maz Matin
Maz has extensive financial services recruitment experience from her time at Jonathan Wren in the City. She has recently returned to specialising in banking recruitment after running her own business in Digital Marketing.

He has received voluntarily from many of his clients exclusive business to handle specific and usually extremely mission-critical recruitment assignments. Bryn’s winning of these exclusive assignments stems substantially from his experience and from the strength of the relationships he has established and maintained.

He pursues these specialities across a wide range of key financial markets, including: capital markets (primary and secondary), transaction banking, corporate lending, asset management, hedge funds, investment banking and private equity.
