Notes on job search


We live in great times when the world is at our fingertips, everything is readily available but when searching for the right fit, it can feel like the ‘next step’ may as well be a needle in a haystack!

Many Associate Directors seeking new opportunities are already aware that although job titles can differ between accountancy firms, often the job specifications can be similar. For example, if you see that we are advertising for an Associate Director position in Leeds we could also be recruiting for Partner jobs in Leeds too. This replicated across different platforms such as big named job boards, secondary job boards, client websites, commercial (unspecialised), can be overwhelming or time consuming to independently search.

Please note not all of our positions are actively advertised due to the nature of fast-moving recruitment cycles and some clients value confidentiality for senior level recruitment.

Get in touch for a confidential conversation and the ease of not having to search.
