Who I am 

Tamryn comes from South Africa offering more than 8 years’ experience as a Specialist Recruiter in Risk. With her passion for travel and her global perspective, Tamryn moved to London where she continues to provide a high performing service since joining McGregor Boyall’s Risk Practice in May 2020. 

Tamryn focuses on permanent and interim risk hiring and has progressed quickly in identifying and attracting highly skilled risk professionals, while continuing to develop her network of clients and recognising their business requirements.


What we do in Risk Management & Quantitative Analytics 

Tamryn focusses on placing Mid-Tier to Senior professionals across the following key verticals within the Risk space: Credit Risk, Market Risk, Operational Risk & Quantitative Analytics / Model Risk. 

Tamryn makes it a priority to not only understand the business needs of her clients but is also committed to personally assisting her candidates with their next career move. As part of our wider financial services business, Tamryn’s remit covers a range of sectors including Banking, Asset Management, Insurance, Credit Rating, Risk Consultancy firms and Regulatory bodies.

 

Recent assignments

Tamryn has already made a footprint in the UK market, after her first successful placement since joining McGregor Boyall after just 5-weeks. This was an extremely critical contract role for a Global Bank within their Conduct Risk team, with a daily rate of £740.00. More recent mandates include a VP level Credit Risk Model Manager for a Risk Consulting firm and a Senior Credit Analyst for an International Bank in their Investment Funds team.

 

Client testimonials

Head of Market Risk Analytics / Director, South African Tier 1 Consulting Firm.

I have worked with Tamryn for the better part of 10 years, and have always been impressed by the effort she puts in to understand our environment and our exact resource needs. This way, she ensures that she provides us with only the most suitable candidates and thus save us a lot of time and effort during the recruitment process. As such, she was the only recruiter that I chose to work with when I made my own career move, and also the only recruiter I maintained a relationship with when moving to a new company.

What made Tamryn even more remarkable was her ability to find good resources with the very specialised skillset that we require. The talent pool of quantitative risk managers within investment banking is very small, yet, although Tamryn was not even based close to the financial capital in our country (Johannesburg, South Africa), she always outperformed the recruiters who were.

Head of the Credit Restructuring team, Tier 1 South African Bank. 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tamryn who is a dedicated and reliable recruiter who understands the market. Tamryn has supported us over the years with critical hires, especially in our Credit Restructuring and Advisory teams which is a highly skilled area of the bank.  Pre-COVID, finding distress skills was particularly difficult and Tamryn was able to identify talent with high growth potential that complemented the team. Tamryn is efficient and goes the extra mile to understand the business requirements needed in order to assist with successful placements.
