our story

fast was created in 1999, when its founding directors decided to use their many years of business experience from within the financial services industry in Luxembourg to provide an efficient and cost effective recruitment service to both companies and candidates. The idea of providing a high quality service at a decent price to various companies with very different sizes and needs led the directors to create fast, whose values of being focused, affordable, straightforward, and tailored, remain at the core.

fast was created to assist companies with the sourcing, development and retention of high calibre financial services staff, no matter the needs of the companies. fast has always made client satisfaction a priority and is committed to offering a reliable service to a wide range of companies, from new players to established corporations in the Luxembourgish marketplace. Specializing in the financial sector, fast provides recruitment solutions for all kinds of activities involving Risk Management, Fund Administration, Accounting, Legal & Compliance, Administration, Client Services and other sectors. From junior to more senior and executive positions, fast understands your needs and leaves no stone unturned in efforts to find the candidates who will live up to your expectations and who will add a real value to your team.

fast’s main purpose is indeed to provide innovative, effective solutions that not only meet clients’ expectations, but often exceed them. fast offers a 100% reliable service and is proud of the care its team takes in personalising its approach to each customer and each candidate. We achieve this by employing high quality people and creating teams that combine specialist business knowledge with the relevant functional expertise. The hands-on experience of our team and the consideration we give to our partners (companies and candidates alike) guarantees a bespoke service that will satisfy our clientele and which will favour long-lasting relationships, an important aspect of fast’s values.

our philosophy

Strong relationships

At fast, we believe that the candidates of today very often become the clients of tomorrow.  We believe in offering satisfaction to our clients and candidates and in building long term relationships. This is something we achieve by offering our clients a tailor-made service and our candidates an individual approach to their needs and career prospects. At fast, we care about our clientele and we want you to be satisfied of our reliable and attentive service.

Cultural fit

Through these strong relationships, we develop an in-depth knowledge of our clients’ businesses, which allows us to understand their objectives and the spirit of their companies. When selecting candidates to submit to our clients, this understanding enables us to not only take the technical requirements of the vacancy into consideration, but also to consider whether candidates will fit the culture of the company. This enables us to submit only the candidates most likely to adapt to the company and to suggest other positions to other candidates so they can find a position in a company they are comfortable with. 

Transparency

If we achieve to create strong relationships, it is because we wish to remain an ethical and honest company, both to our clients and to our candidates. We have an ethical policy of only dealing with candidates who have approached us on their own initiative, and of interviewing each candidate to make sure they meet the profile needed before submitting their CV. This way, we can provide clients with a summary of the candidates’ career, expectations and personality. We also advise and give constructive feedback to candidates to help them through every step of the recruitment process, and to boost their chances of success.
