In my last blog, I discussed the many advantages that our candidates would find in placing their jobs search in our hands here at HR Consultancy. The Accountancy and Finance market can be a tough one to navigate, whatever stage of your career you may find yourself at.

Equally, it can be difficult to source the very brightest and best talent, particularly if you are looking for candidates who are proficient in new software, such as Cloud. You may well find that the traditional approach to hiring is simply no longer relevant.

That is where an experienced recruiter like myself can step in to help you find talented and knowledgeable candidates who will be able to add value to your business.

Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider using a recruiter when looking to make a hire within the Accountancy Practice market.

Market knowledge

Recruiters should know their market inside out. They’ll know what legislation might affect your business, when the peak times for new hires are and what kind of candidates typically succeed. This specialist knowledge allows us to reach out to the right candidates at the right time – something that is key for securing a lengthy, successful term of employment.

Extensive candidate pool

We have access to a wide range of candidates and utilise special tools to help us source ‘passive’ candidates via sites such as LinkedIn. We keep our finger on the pulse: We know who is looking for a move and who would be a great fit for your company. We can get in contact with candidates who may not otherwise realise you are hiring.

Reduced workload

Wouldn’t you prefer if you had someone to sift through a pile of CVs and willing candidates on your behalf? That’s what we do. We can narrow down the list of applicants or suitable candidates so that only the very best make it through your door to interview stage. This will save your business a tremendous amount of man hours and administrative work.

Culture fit

We’ll get to know your business really well; what makes you tick and how you like things to run. If you’re passionate about your company values, we’ll make sure that we will align you with a candidate who feels the same way. If your office is fast-paced and high volume, we’ll only ever recommend someone who we know will be able to meet your expectations.


Certainly, there will be an initial outlay to secure a brilliant new member of staff but this is a much less expensive alternative to constantly hiring. Training a new-start to the ways of your business only to have them leave is a good way to waste time and money. By using a recruiter, you ensure that your new talent will fit in, learn quickly and stick around.
