Q&A with Dan Waltham FourthLine’s Head of Permanent

Dan joined FourthLine in March 2012 after 6 years working as a senior team member for a technology recruitment firm in Manchester.  He joined as a Senior Consultant to help establish the Permanent business and after progressing over the past three years is now heading up a team of eight.

What is FourthLine’s long term vision?

Our vision is to become the UK market leader in Governance, Risk and Compliance resourcing services across the Financial Services sector.  We will achieve this through our specialist knowledge and focused business model that provides our customers with a responsive service, combining access to market leading talent with industry leading levels of due diligence. 

What are company’s core values?

We listened to what our customers had to say about us on this one.  We worked with our client and candidate network to ask which core values they associated with FourthLine and our team.  They said we were entrepreneurial, straightforward, collaborative and diligent. 

These are aligned with the principles we measure ourselves against every day – knowledge, drive, partnership. 

What does the future hold? 

FourthLine is looking for established recruiters and talented graduates to join in the future growth of the business.  We will grow from our Manchester and London offices to establish ourselves as the market leader in insurance and retail finance sectors for Governance, Risk and Compliance hiring services. 

We will double in headcount throughout 2015 and by midpoint 2016, aim to have a 40 headcount team with opportunity for all significant contributors to own a share in the business. 

What is the working culture and environment like at FourthLine?

We take pride in helping our customers to achieve their business goals and whilst the working environment is focused and results driven, we have an excellent team ethic where everyone is extremely welcoming and any new starter is made to feel immediately at home.

Consultants plan and manage their own diaries and our culture is one of ownership and delivery rather than micromanagement.

We are located in the heart of Manchester’s business district close to many bars, restaurants and shops in a modern and spacious environment in state of the art serviced offices.  Our dress code is business casual and we offer our staff flexible working hours and a market leading benefits package. 

How can I progress with FourthLine?

We have a strong progression plan in place for our team which sets out your career with FourthLine as a series of increasingly challenging projects where promotion to the next level is a natural step up rather than a monumental task.  We are excited about the future opportunities in the business with genuine wealth creation opportunities for those willing to work hard to achieve their ambitions with us.

We offer some of the best in-house training in the sector with every new employee given a structured on-boarding plan and detailed training manual.  We provide weekly coaching sessions and an in-depth half-day monthly training designed to help you reach your full recruitment and business potential.  We also offer company funded training and self-development books to help you learn in your own time if you wish.
