ETRA Talent launches in partnership with Recruitment Entrepreneur

Embarking on a new era of specialised contingent and executive search services, ETRA Talent proudly announces its launch in partnership with Recruitment Entrepreneur, backed by highly esteemed recruitment industry investor, James Caan CBE.

ETRA Talent specialises in placing mid-to-senior level professionals within banking, investment management, insurance, and non-financial services markets across the UK, Europe, and internationally.

Founder and CEO, Parvyez Salam, brings 18 years of recruitment and sector experience. After previously building a successful career within reputable companies including HSBC, Aston Carter, McGregor Boyall, and Taylor Root, he’s decided to take the next natural step in establishing his own business.

The partnership with Recruitment Entrepreneur was a natural choice for Parvyez, driven by the strong RE brand, the impressive caliber of individuals involved, both at board level and operationally, and the sheer wealth of knowledge and expertise within the team.

Sharing his thoughts on the announcement, Parvyez said, “This is the start of a journey of real purpose where ETRA Talent will earn the right, always to provide incredible service to candidates and clients. I’m excited to be embarking on this journey with the backing of Recruitment Entrepreneur. The alignment of our goals, values, and global vision, together with their invaluable support and leadership insights, meant partnering with them was a simple and straightforward decision”.  

AS ETRA Talent evolves, its commitment to prioritising people will stand first and foremost, and eventually guarantee its place as a leader in the executive search market. Guided by four core values of being exceptional, trusted, respected, and awesome; these principles will be the cornerstone of ETRA Talent’s culture as Parvyez looks to grow his team - covering roles in risk management, compliance, financial crime, change management/ transformation, and quantitative analytics.

Greg Hollis, CEO of Recruitment Entrepreneur, commented, “You can clearly see the passion Parvyez has for recruitment and developing people. His positive attitude and approach will be a powerful force in propelling ETRA Talent to the forefront of executive search in his respective markets. With his impressive track record, I’m confident that together we’ll build not only a profitable venture but a successful business that embodies Parvyez’s values and principles".

“We’re proud to be welcoming him as part of the group and anticipate swift and substantial growth of the business in both the UK and internationally”.

James Caan CBE, Chairman of Recruitment Entrepreneur, adds “The collaboration between Recruitment Entrepreneur and ETRA Talent heralds a new chapter in contingent and executive search.

Leveraging Parvyez’s proficiency in placing professionals across diverse sectors, alongside our mutual dedication to innovation and diversity, we foresee a positive influence on the industry.”

With a global network already in place, ETRA Talent's key focus will be to engage with clients and top talent across the international community and prioritise every individual candidate and client. This means they’re not just dealt with once, but meaningful connections are maintained so they’re supported for the long term.
