Accountant recruitment agency
The period of the last eighteen months to two years has been good news for recruitment agencies. This includes an accountant recruitment agency. This might seem like a bizarre thing to say during a period that has seen record levels of job losses and the worst recession in living memory, but when I say recruitment agencies, I mean the proper ones, those that have a strong client base, an enviable track record of success and good, in depth experience.
Many recruitment agencies have lost staff, predominantly the inexperienced youngsters who believe that their views are the only views and impose these on you without taking into account your requirements, desires or ambitions. This heavy handed approach can be a particular issue when dealing with any accountant recruitment agency.
The big agencies, which have endured more staff losses and suffered generally more than most, have been victims of their own failings, having given little or no training to their consultants, and certainly not the type of training that would enable them to understand the difference between an individual accountant. Recruitment agency staff often have little idea of the difference between qualification bodies, the importance to some businesses (but not all) of qualification, and the fundamental difference between an accountant and a finance director. It is imperative that your accountant recruitment agency understands the finer points of your recruitment needs; the highest quality accountant recruitment agencies will be able to advise on the best fit in terms of money, company size and technical requirements.
Given the level of responsibility that a senior accountant or finance director will have within in a business there is so much at stake if a wrong decision is made and it is imperative that you choose a tried and tested accountant recruitment agency for any assignment that you may have.
