Specialist Fintech Executive Search

I am Dexter Cousins, Director and Co-Founder of Tier One People, a Sydney based Executive Search business created for the FinTech industry.

I launched Tier One People in early 2016 specifically to support the growth of Fintech businesses on the journey to becoming an enterprise. Since launching, Tier One People has fast become the recruitment partner of choice for some of Australia’s fastest growing companies.

Having started my recruitment career in the late 1990’s there is one thing that has kept me motivated more than anything else;

Seeing a client grow and become even more successful because of an employee I have introduced.


It is a real privilege to play a small part in the success of some of the worlds fastest growing companies.


Why Tier One People?

We offer a search and recruitment service tailor made for the FinTech industry:

Speed to hire, quality candidates, long-term partnerships, with a fair and flexible pricing model that can accomodate start-up budgets.

Our business model has been designed so that busy founders/leaders have one point of contact to support the build out of their entire team. A broad network gives us the capacity to support hiring across the full ELT and their direct reports.

Our average time to hire is four weeks or less, enabling founders to get on with growing the business while we take care of recruitment.

How do we identify the very best talent?

FinTech requires unique people. Entrepreneurial, driven, resilient and talented employees who can turn start-ups into enterprises.

With the help of Neural Learning, AI, cutting edge technology and decades of recruiment smarts we are pioneering a unique approach to hiring. Our methods help clients identify which candidates will achieve the required results while contributing to the growth of the business.

Each client is unique with their own unique set of challenges and personalities, in Fintech, it’s not about hiring for culture fit.

It’s about hiring the people who CREATE cultures.
