18 June 2014, New York, NY — OneWire, the leading career site for finance professionals, today announced a new partnership with EMPEA, the global industry association for private capital in emerging markets. According to EMPEA’s Talent Management Survey, competition for qualified talent at private equity firms is expected to intensify in most emerging markets over the next five years, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa and Emerging Asia. The partnership was formed to support this growing industry by deepening the candidate pool and providing tools to efficiently find highly skilled individuals to fill open positions. EMPEA Members and other industry practitioners will benefit from OneWire’s competitive job opportunities, stronger recruiting technology, and access to a community of qualified talent.

Combining OneWire’s community of over 360,000 finance professionals with EMPEA’s global industry reach in developed and developing markets, a powerful Job Board has been launched on EMPEA’s website. EMPEA Member Firms are distinguished on the platform and receive discounted rates on job postings and OneWire’s other recruitment services. Candidates can access the Job Board and apply to jobs free-of-charge.

OneWire’s recruiting solutions offer greater access to qualified talent for the full spectrum of private capital players, including fund managers, institutional investors, industry advisers and portfolio companies.
