About Michael Aspinall

After completing a degree in Business and Financial Services at the University of Sheffield, Michael quickly moved into the recruitment industry, focusing from the beginning in finding top information and cyber security talent within the financial services sector. His professional journey started at a renowned organisation, where he quickly established himself as an expert in his market by placing candidates at all levels for some of the UK's biggest banks and insurance companies. He then moved on to another small hiring firm to build their Information and Cyber Security practice from the ground up. He now joins Rutherford to grow the business' Cyber Security recruitment market across the UK and the United States.

Having been introduced to Rutherford through a colleague, it quickly became clear that the opportunity aligned to my aspirations in terms of philosophies and goals. I was impressed with the setup of the team and how successful they were across compliance, financial crime, legal and cyber security recruitment. With the team possessing many years’ experience it was clear I would be able to add value across the information and cyber security function, helping the business to expand across new markets and territories. I am very much looking forward to joining a successful company and working with the team to grow the Rutherford brand.
