About CB3 Associates
The CB3 Story: Since its formation in April 2017, CB3 Associates Ltd has quickly established itself as a market leading recruitment specialist for the North with the financial services sector. Chris Brown - Managing Director for the group comes with 6 years industry experience working heavily within the financial services sector across an M62 corridor geographic.
Our Values: We pride ourselves in offering a unique, professional and quality recruitment service, providing Permanent, Temporary and Executive staff to the banking and financial services sectors. Our established team of consultants who have contributed to our success are all ex-industry banking and finance professionals with extensive recruitment experience.
Our Strategy: With extensive candidate, and indeed client networks across Yorkshire, Cheshire and the North West and the North East we offer a focused, consultative tailored approach to recruitment that provides a personal touch to the professional services sector that is financial services/financial planning. This information and market knowledge has been built up via personal reputation over years of working within the local market, and also referrals/recommendations coming from key players who are in turn respected for their experience, opinions in industry, and indeed their market awareness.
Our mini-business strategy is initially aimed at achieving steady growth and ultimately presence within the Financial Services arena locally, without losing that consultative approach and personal feel offered to all parties throughout the recruitment process.

Corey – Senior Paraplanner @ Sandringham FP
Would highly recommend Chris when searching for a role, great communication skills and positive attitude. Managed to place me in something within a week of our first conversation. Really knows his stuff and has contacts to some brilliant companies. Cannot recommend enough
Kayleigh – Paraplanning Manager @ TFAS
Chris is excellent to work with. Very professional and attentive!
Kath – Operations Manager @ BBT Group
Chris really took the time to listen to me and to understand my requirements for my new role following redundancy. He gave me helpful tips and hints to prepare for my first interview after 17 years and was always on hand when I needed him. He didn’t ‘blanket Mail’ my details to anyone and everyone- he was selective and sounded me out about potential positions to obtain my permission to send my details on to prospective employers. Chris is definitely on my shortlist of my preferred recruiters.
Lisa – Financial Planner @ The Pension Planner
Chris yet again hit it out of the park.
I’ve dealt with Chris for many years now, and he recently placed in a new role (he previously placed me in another brilliant role back in 2014).
It was a company I hadn’t considered and probably wouldn’t have, had Chris not understood exactly what I needed and exactly what the company I am now happily employed by needed.
I have recommended Chris to friends and colleagues previously, and I cannot speak highly enough of him. Top of his game, as always.
David – Admin Manager @ Quilter PCA
Chris made the whole recruitment process effortless and was very supportive at every step. I would recommend CB3 Associates to anyone looking at moving firms.
Omar – Financial Planning Manager @ True Wealth FP
Chris has always been a great recruiter/ consultant .. He is open, honest and always tells you the facts of the exact positions and their requirements. Never does he push a role but rather consults with you and your requirements. I have worked with Chris on many opportunities and my last role was obtained by him. I’m now happily employed with a company that matches my values and my future ambitions.
Steve – Recruitment Manager @ Kingswood Group
When selecting agency partners to utilise, I look for expertise in their field. There’s no doubt that Chris is just that. He takes time to listen to clients, understand their needs and provides suitable candidates, readily prepped and briefed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris to any organisations within his field of expertise.
Nina – Company Director @ PenLife
We have worked with Chris for a number of years and have always found him to be very professional and reliable. Providing really high quality candidates. would highly recommend
Aimie – Talent Acquisition Partner @ Armstrong Watson
I have worked with Chris for a long time now, and he has placed a number of very experienced candidates into our firm’s Financial Planning Team. His ability to source great quality candidates, in line with our need and requirements, is excellent. I look forward to continuing to work with him for many years which are still to come.
