Blackbridge Communications has teamed up with BNP Paribas to offer the bank a fresh approach to its recruitment of emerging talent into its Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB) division.

There will be a particular focus on recruiting high-calibre females in Global Markets, and on Technology roles.

The managing director of Blackbridge, Tony Andrews, said: ‘We’re delighted to have won a three-way pitch for this prestigious account. It’s a great opportunity for us to engage with an intellectually challenging recruitment initiative.’

The bank joins a growing roster of Blackbridge clients in the financial and professional services sectors. Others include Lloyd’s of London, Clifford Chance, DLA Piper, CIMA and KPMG.
