Justin Lee is currently a Client Director at a Financial Services Consulting firm. He has 15 years of experience recruiting in Change Transformation projects in the Front, Middle and Back Office, across the business, change and Technology functions, specialising in placing BA's and PM's into top tier institutions (inc.

This is combined with a wealth of experience and insider knowledge into the pitfalls of navigating the gatekeeper systems in HR and the ever-present RPO's and what it takes to make it through the portals and 'control-F' profile searches to ensure your CV actually gets read by the all-important hiring manager. Over the years of heading up specialist Financial Services Recruitment Desks, he has crafted a series of formatted CV templates whose structure and content are designed to give you the best chance of getting an interview as a BA within Finance.
