What is a Finance and Accounting Recruiter?

As a Finance and Accounting Recruiting Expert, I connect businesses with experienced talent for critical mid-band and senior finance and accounting leadership positions. What does this look like? I recently worked with a venue & event management company specializing in managing stadiums, convention centers, theaters, and unique venues to recruit a Director, Finance Transformation. I presented them with a seasoned finance professional with 20+ years of experience for the position and am pleased to say it was a match!

What does a Finance and Accounting Recruiter Do?

I take over the full cycle of the recruiting process. Having a background in both finance and staffing allows me to get a very clear understanding of what my clients are looking for in terms of technical accounting and finance skills, industry, enterprise resource planning (ERP) experience, expectations. Once the candidates are presented to the hiring manager, they are hire-ready. My clients are able to focus on their day-to-day activities because I have taken the tedious task of recruiting off their plate.

Work Across Specialties and Industries

The need for experienced Finance and Accounting talent goes far beyond the Banking and Financial industry. I work with candidates that possess 10+ years of leadership experience for middle to upper-level back-office leadership roles across all industries, including Manufacturing, Government Contracting, Service, Pharma, Non-profit, and publicly traded companies, among many others.

These candidates take on direct hire corporate finance roles in fields such as:

Accounting
Financial Planning and Analysis
Compliance
C-Suite
Tax
Treasury
SEC Reporting
Audit
Procurement
Operations
Payroll
Pricing
