One IT in finance
headhunter told the news provider that banks are looking to "poach" some of the best talent from the technology
sector in order to boost their operations and inject some new blood into their organisations.
"These [jobs] are predominantly around programme management within applications and infrastructure, development heads for non-product aligned areas and a lot of e-commerce client technology
