Looking to work with an accountancy recruiter in 2021?
As a talented accountancy professional, you have the upper hand when it comes to securing a new job in 2021. Not only are your skills one of the most in demand, but employers in general know that it’s a candidate-driven market. You can afford to be choosy. And if you’re savvy enough to be using a specialist accountancy recruitment firm to support your job search, you need to be choosy here too.
Here are 4 things you need to look for when choosing an expert in accountancy recruitment:
1. Market knowledge
Do they understand industry trends, behaviours, products, customers and clients? And are they up to date and passionate about emerging trends within the industry?
Can they demonstrate the depth and breadth of their knowledge of the accountancy profession – with intelligent insight and hands-on experience?
Can they see the recruitment process from the candidate perspective, rather than just the clients – or worse…simply their own?
2. Service Delivery
What is their service culture, their vision and their values? Does this match the way they treat you and make you feel?
Are their processes efficient and smooth, and do they contact you when they say they will?
Do they actively listen and remember the things you tell them, and work with you collaboratively to achieve your goals?
3. Acting with speed
Do they answer your calls and emails with urgency – exceeding your expectations?
Can they demonstrate their speed to market when it comes to finding dream jobs for accountants in the UK?
Do they act without delay when it comes to all elements of the recruitment process?
4. Building relationships
Do they treat you with respect at all times and make you feel important?
Are they accountable for their actions, approachable and eager to please you?
Can you tell that they care deeply about matching candidates with the right role and the right employer?
If the answer is no to ANY of these questions, you need to find a new specialist accountancy recruiter with these values at the heart of everything they do.
