Hire world-class talent.

Build world-class Fintech ventures.

Leaders in Fintech Executive search.

Hiring world-class leadership talent is time-consuming, expensive and complex. Global talent shortages and a highly regulated Fintech sector add even more complexity to the search.

At Tier One People we make it simpler to hire outstanding Fintech leaders. And we do it faster and more affordably than traditional executive search firms.

That’s why companies like Revolut, 10x, UBank, Lendi, Q2, TrueLayer, ANZ 1835i, NAB Ventures, and many more trust us to help them launch, scale and innovate.
