About Michael Cunningham

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Politics at the University of Southampton, Michael started his career in recruitment as an Associate Consultant for a large search firm, working his way up to Business Manager within the interim space. Michael has built a strong, valuable network within his space, comprising of top compliance and financial crime talent and repeat clients.

After five years of building his career as a head-hunter, Michael joins Rutherford as Associate Director, heading up the contracts and interim team. Michael will specialise in placing top candidates in compliance and financial crime interim roles within the fintech, payments, consultancy, exchange and retail banking sectors.


"After several years in recruitment, a move to Rutherford really made sense to me. As specialists in the Compliance and Financial Crime space, the area I've spent my career focussed on, there was excellent opportunity to really leverage off each other’s networks to deliver the best service to clients and candidates alike. Rutherford offered me a very good platform to develop a market leading contract and consultancy business within financial services, with a professional and down to earth group of people around me. I'm very much looking forward to growing the portfolio of services we offer, and bringing more attention to the Rutherford brand." ​- Michael Cunningham, Associate Director
