We spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on advertising and marketing every year to give our customers the best candidate choice when they are recruiting.

Over 30,000 job applications and CV updates each month

In order to find the professional accounting personnel our clients expect to interview, we carry out an extensive search and selection campaign. Having taken the time to fully understand your business requirements, we will take good care with the management of your job vacancy. Armed with the best database and Internet searching tools modern technology offers, we search and select from a further five subscribed databases with the intention of presenting highly suitable candidates for interview.

Our searching tools help us to reduce thousands of potentially suitable CVs to a highly targeted shortlist of about a hundred people to consider. You benefit from us broadcasting your vacancy electronically to a carefully targeted audience on our own in-house database. Discretion of course is assured and we never disclose the identity of our customer until we are given the go-ahead to do so.

Our interviewing process often takes several days to fully complete and we set the highest standards. Many of the people we contact aren't looking at the well-known job boards and we task ourselves with ethically positioning our customer's vacancy in the most attractive way possible without ever making an opportunity sound better than it really is. We promote the benefits of working for your company and make sure we match people who suit your company culture.
