We Are Financial Services Headhunters

Established in 2003, Midwest Financial Search specializes in banking and financial services placement for employers and candidates in the Twin Cities metro area. We are financial services executive recruiters with more than 30 years of hands-on experience working in various roles in the banking industry, from commercial lending to private banking. We leverage those experiences and the connections we’ve made over the years to match banks and credit unions with candidates that suit them, and introduce banking professionals to companies that complement their skills, personality and work style.

We know bankers. Midwest Financial Search does not place accountants or stockbrokers; we place only banking professionals. Concentrating on this very specialized profession benefits both the job seekers we place and the leading commercial banks and credit unions seeking fresh talent.

We Offer Candidates Access

In our business, it’s who you know that counts. Despite technological advances, we understand that recruiting is still a business based on personal contacts and reputation. We’ve spent decades building our reputation as banking professionals and another 15-plus years establishing ourselves as financial services recruiters. Our network in the banking community continues to grow larger each year as we expand our recruiting services to more banks and credit unions across the Twin Cities metro area. Drawing on our long-standing connections within the industry has allowed us to help hundreds of banking professionals break into the hidden job market and advance their careers.

Because financial institutions come to us to help them fill positions, we are often among the first to be notified when a new position becomes available. This gives our candidates access to positions that are not widely advertised, and ensures that their resumes stand out amongst other applicants. The enduring relationships, trust, and integrity we’ve established are often what get our job-seeking clients the interview.

We Offer Employers Experience

Since our start in the early 2000s, Midwest Financial Search has helped fill hundreds of banking positions in the Twin Cities metro area. But before that, our financial services executive recruiters were banking professionals themselves. This gives us a huge advantage when it comes to identifying qualified candidates. We have a deep understanding of each individual bank’s business goals, as well as a keen ability to recognize the skills required to excel in any given position. Our clients know that candidates we refer meet predetermined criteria.

We Find the Right Match

At Midwest Financial Search, we believe that the intangibles like candidates’ career aspirations and employers’ corporate culture are equally critical. Placing skilled and qualified candidates results in long-term, mutually-beneficial employment. Employers value the talent we offer them, and candidates appreciate the opportunities we provide.

If you’re a job seeker, we’d love to meet face to face to get to know you, your skills, experience, and your future goals. As experts in the banking industry, we can provide you with the market knowledge, career guidance, and professional connections you need to advance your career. 

If you’re an employer looking for qualified candidates, we’d love to help you fill open positions with motivated, experienced banking professionals. The candidates we refer are personally vetted by recruiters with decades of hands-on experience in the financial services industry.

With a population over 3.6 million, the Twin Cities has both a rich pool of financial services talent and an incredibly competitive job market. Whether you’re an employer or a job-seeker, Midwest Financial Search can help take the stress out of the hiring process by finding you the right match.
