Maurice Christie

Principal Consultant

Team: Banking & Financial Markets

I specialise in: Recruiting client facing functions within financial services

Languages: English, French, Spanish and Northern Irish-isms

I’ve been at Euro London since: 2007

About me: Originally from Northern Ireland, I have lived in London for 13 years and worked for Euro London for 10 of those. I studied French and Spanish at University, so being able to work with International talent and promote that in the London market was a natural choice for me. When I’m not in the office, I’m exploring what London has to offer. This usually means at the markets or trying out new pubs and restaurants. I’m a foodie so I enjoy eating out a lot. To try and balance this indulgence, I go to the gym and swim (although not as much as I should) and I enjoy playing tennis when Wimbledon fortnight is upon us.

If I was a famous person, I would be: A male version of Maya Angelou – her poems and wise words have always resonated with me

Fun fact: I used to compete at school national level in swimming in the butterfly stroke
