Hamlyn Williams will be moving to Wales after receiving backing from the Welsh Government, beating offers from around the world, including South Africa.

The specialist executive financial services recruitment company will be based in Capital Tower. The company already has offices in London, New York, Hong Kong and Dubai.

We have a lot to offer to financial and professional service sector businesses. We have already attracted big-hitters like Deloitte to Wales, and I am delighted to welcome Hamlyn Williams to join the list of prestigious companies who have enjoyed growth and prosperity here.

As a University city, Cardiff can offer a rich resource of young, talented graduates who will be ideally placed to feed Hamlyn Williams’ newest venture, and I wish them every success.
