Toby Jacobs

I’m a highly recommended Recruitment Consultant (check out my LinkedIn profile!) with a proven track record of matching highly skilled candidates to exclusive opportunities. My approach is consultative, and I have a desire to understand the why and the what for everyone I work with.

I joined the niche team at Skillfinder to run a vertical market in core banking for the Avaloq platform. My tenacity and keen eye for detail has helped me build strong relationships with many reputable banks and consultancies, becoming a go-to recruiter when sourcing Avaloq talent.

I work with integrity and dedication, providing a high level of service and professionalism to candidates and hirers.

Currently recruiting for permanent and freelance opportunities in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, UK, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Singapore and Germany. Roles include Avaloq consultants and developers; stream leads; business analysts; project managers; and microservices/ API specialists.

Aside from work, I’m an ethical vegan with interests in music and travelling.


I've worked as a specialist recruiter throughout my career discovering hard to find talent and embedding myself in small industries.

Before working in the banking and IT sector, I helped build a start-up recruitment consultancy to become the go-to specialist in geospatial surveying recruitment. I brought on and developed relationships with the largest names in the industry, down to the smaller specialist consultancy clients.

After establishing myself, many hires I made came through referrals from candidates with friends or colleagues looking to explore the best opportunities in market with a trusted and knowledgeable consultant. This allowed me to deliver with quality and speed to my clients and uphold an excellent reputation.

Since joining Skillfinder I have worked hard to replicate my position in a new market and continuously improve my service to both candidates and clients. I have onboarded over 15 leading clients in my vertical and built relationships with over 250 candidates, tapping into a network of hard-to-find talent in a small pool across Switzerland, the rest of Central Europe, and the UK.

 I offer a variety of bespoke opportunities at the top employers in the Avaloq market, acting as a one-stop shop for job seekers skilled in Avaloq, adding real value to candidates’ job search.
