tml Partners appoints Marketing Lead for Rathbones

Case Studies

Rathbones Group plc provide individual investment and wealth management services for private clients, charities, trustees and professional partners. They have been trusted for generations to manage and preserve their clients’ wealth. Their tradition of investing and acting responsibly has been integral to their success as one of the most consistently recognised UK Wealth Managers.

Seb Wainwright of tml Partners was approached by Rathbones to find a Marketing Production Manager to take over line management of the RFP and presentations team whilst also overseeing wider content change management to streamline efficiencies across multiple marketing disciplines. Certainly, a unique role that required extensive experience of people management and business change execution.

Seb worked closely with dual hiring managers, Head of Marketing Operations Cole Walker and Head of Digital Marketing Lee Wilson to understand the role and the exciting project map of the wider marketing function at Rathbones. They were looking for a hybrid marketer and required multiple lines of sight across disparate disciplines. The ability to work autonomously was key, given the priorities and reporting lines for the role.

Seb reached out to his extensive network of marketing professionals across Asset Management, utilising a proactive approach that included headhunting and leveraging his network. An initial shortlist was presented within a week and David Squires was successfully appointed to the position, who had been known in his network for some time.

Commenting on his experience working with tml Partners, David Squires comments:

“The recruitment market is a murky and often frustrating experience, whether in the position of recruiter or candidate. tml and more specifically Seb have definitely been amazing to deal with. Professional, polite, great levels of communication and as a result highly recommended, whichever side of the table you’ll be sitting on. I would definitely not hesitate to use the services of Seb and tml for future hires after seeing how brilliantly I was treated as a candidate.”

As a specialist asset and wealth management marketing headhunter, Seb Wainwright works with leading and high growth clients to support the best in class development of in-house marketing, innovation, communications and digital functions.
