Rutherford has been known for over a decade as a leading Compliance & Legal recruitment business for the financial services sector.

  • Attractive share options in the business; our Director is gifting 40% of equity to employees as share options

  • Strong training and support from a team of reputable specialists in compliance recruitment

  • A solid support function to lessen the amount of admin – allowing you to focus on what matters the most and to expedite your efforts

The Other Good Stuff

  • Gym memberships (up to £100/month)
