A joint initiative from workforce solutions and recruitment specialist Hays and FinTech Scotland, the fintech cluster management organisation, aims to highlight candidate skills and experience directly to Scotland’s many emerging fintech companies.
-The initiative is being launched as part of the SCOTLAND FINTECH FESTIVAL(21 September – 12 October 2023) when a programme of events, workshops, networking and conferences are being held across Scotland.
-The new ‘Fintech Talent’ platform will enable professionals to showcase their skills to over 220 fintechs in Scotland and be matched with suitable job vacancies.
-Potential candidates can register through the FinTech Scotland website, where they will be invited to upload their CV. An AI process then searches and matches CVs to specific vacancies, recommending candidates to employers which they can then review.
What does this mean?
Nicola Anderson, CEO at FinTech Scotland said: “We are really excited about the launch of the new ‘FinTech Talent’ platform. In collaboration with Hays, this initiative will seek to support Scotland’s dynamic fintech community at a time when the global skills gap continues to grow. As we unveil this innovative solution during Scotland Fintech Festival, we’re thrilled to empower professionals on their career journeys and help them find their perfect fintech match. It’s an important development for both candidates and the fintech industry.”
