Not exactly what you are looking for? Here is the thing….

You will also know that if you are working in Accountancy, your skills and experiences are massively in demand. How many times are you messaged on LinkedIn about jobs from recruiters? All the time no doubt. 

The most effective service I offer, is also the simplest for you. Dont wait to spot the perfect rile, let me go out and find it for you.

Rather than you searching online to find the agency that is advertising something you might be interested in. If you contact me, we arrange to talk and I listen to exactly what you want and why you want it. Because I am connected to all the key decisions makers in every Accountancy business in the Northwest, I can make confidential approaches, without sharing your name or employer, and identify a selection of the best opportunities that match exactly what you are looking for. You review and decide which we go forward with. It really is that simple.

You don’t have to deal with 3 or 4 different recruiters, who are each offering one or two opportunities each. There is no pressure selling working this way with us. We are not competition trying to convince you that the job we have got is perfect for you, you make that call.

So, although I must advertise a certain number of roles out there, to give you an idea of what I recruit for. But if you don’t find exactly what you are looking (which let’s be fair most job adverts and pretty hard to get a clear idea on), then reach out to me by applying.

Absolute discretion

Your CV or application is always absolutely confidential. By applying you are not losing control. The next stage of the process is for us to talk about what you want, what you don’t want, and for me to tell you whether I can help. If I can’t, I’ll be upfront about it. 

So if you are not entirely happy with what you have, and believe that you deserve better, then please get in touch and lets arrange to speak.
