With 35 combined years of expertise in finance, recruitment and a passion for value, the brainchild of Claire and Duncan Watt - Montgomery Watt - was born.
The recruitment firm that specialises in finance and transformation roles, was launched in January this year.
Having held a 20-year career culminating in several CFO and Managing Director appointments at a FTSE25 business, Claire Watt decided it was the right time to set up her own firm. Understanding the nuances of what clients would expect from a recruitment partner, as well as being married to an experienced recruiter, the idea of setting up the business seemed like an obvious move. And so, Montgomery Watt was born.
“Together we have a very rare, if not unique blend of skills, experience and ways of working. Between us we have first-hand experience as a recruiting CFO and transformation director, recruitment consultant, head hunter, mentor and internal recruiter,” explains Claire Watt, “and it is our passion for adding value to the finance community that drives us”.
