Accountancy practice

We establish long-term relationships between accountants and practices, cultivating success in London and its surrounding areas.

Evaluating skill sets, personalities and motivations, our candidate-focused approach enables us to successfully fill accounting, auditing and tax roles with individuals that not only match an organisation’s requirements but also their overall ethos. 

We specialise in the following key areas of accountancy practice:

Leveraging our finance sector ties and global accountancy expertise, we use our insights to support your accountancy practice job search. Placing accountants to senior partners, we can connect you with a diverse range of firms – SMEs to blue-chip enterprises – even in competitive industries. 

Providing dedicated support from the initial application to onboarding, we act as intermediaries between employers and candidates, giving you a voice from application to negotiation. Whether you have a specific role in mind or simply want to explore your options, our consultants can guide you toward success, be that a better work-life balance or other career goals.

accountancy hire

Our dedicated accountancy practice recruiters collaborate closely with your team, to understand your firm’s culture and the roles which will help your business to truly flourish. Harnessing this information, we’re then able to employ various strategies to attract candidates and introduce your organisation, ensuring an excellent fit. 

In what is largely a candidate-driven market, we pride ourselves on fostering enduring partnerships and tailoring our services to your evolving needs. For example, we acknowledge the seasonality associated with accountancy practice and can also support contract and interim positions.

Your FAQs

We support accounting professionals with all qualifications, including ACA, ACCA and ATT. Prior experience either from a job or placement year will be advantageous in your job search. Unfortunately due to working VISA requirements, we are unable to support candidates who do not live in the UK or have the right to work in the UK.

We start the process with an initial consultation to delve into your career objectives, skills, and preferences. With a clear understanding of your profile and goals, we proactively seek positions that align with your criteria. Our candidate services are entirely complimentary, to help guide you through the job search process, we offer:

  • Free CV and LinkedIn profile advice
  • Thorough interview preparation
  • Clear communication at every step 
  • Offer negotiation

 

In addition, as part of our after-care, we’ll keep in touch to ensure you’re happy in your new position.

Focused mainly in London and the surrounding areas, our vacancy salaries typically start at around £40k+ and our executive search specialists commonly recruit roles up to £200k. 

In our experience, fully remote accounting jobs are not very common. Our London-based clients often opt for hybrid roles, requiring 1-2 days in the office. However, full-time office roles still have a place within the industry. 

We’ll take the time to get to know your business up-front. This means that we can ensure we’re sourcing professionals who fit your job specification as well as your culture. Our thorough brief also ensures that we bring your opportunity to life when speaking to prospective candidates. 

Our candidate attraction resources include:

  • Video advertisements
  • Sponsored job board coverage (we’ll pay the premium on national platforms to ensure your vacancy is seen)
  • Candidate referrals
  • The combined strength of our network and long-lasting relationships

 

Our services also include registration checks where necessary and managing your job offer.

We’re proud to champion the senior interim market across the finance and accounting industry. In recent years, we’ve seen more demand for day rate and fixed-term contracts and have everything in place to ensure this is a smooth process for clients and candidates.

Common reasons for needing an interim hire may include assistance with busy periods such as year end, or special projects, sickness or maternity cover and specialist skill requirements for a short period of time. Many of our clients will also hire for a temporary period before making a permanent offer. The interim finance market is fast-paced and we can be reactive if you need to hire somebody quickly. We’ll also take care of all administrative responsibilities, such as:

  • Candidate registration
  • Eligibility requirements
  • Compliance
  • References


Unsure whether a contract or interim hire might be the best solution for your business or require more information on how our process works? Ryan Jaiswal, head of the accountancy practice team will be happy to set up a no-obligation chat to answer any questions. Please get in touch
