London Banker Jobs Decrease as Large Firms Slow Hiring

Job vacancies at London’s financial-services companies fell by 8 percent in July from the previous month as hiring by large securities firms slowed, according to a survey by a recruitment firm.

The number of openings in the City and Canary Wharf financial districts decreased to 2,000 in July from 2,190 in June, London-based Astbury Marsden said in a statement today. However, smaller companies such as high-frequency and algorithmic trading firms, are “actively” creating new positions and adding employees, according to the recruiter.
