Matt Baxby, Country CEO, Revolut.

“I have dealt with a lot of recruiters over the years and I have found Tier One People to be super capable and quite different from others in the space.

I genuinely felt like they wanted to find the right candidate for Revolut, but also the right fit for the candidate.

In a service sector that has become more and more transactional, the value placed on trust and delivering for the long term have become diluted in importance.

However, the opposite is true for anyone looking to build a sustainable business built on great people.

I could see there was a strong value alignment between Tier One People and Revolut in this regard.”
