Our Accountancy Practice Expertise

The Accountancy Practice sector in Scotland and Northern Ireland is at the forefront of the accountancy profession worldwide in terms of digital innovation, training quality, the breadth and depth of service provision and the calibre of talent. Alongside the Big 4 and Top 10 national firms, highly competitive independent accountancy firms cater for the accounting and finance needs of multinationals and growth companies. Changing attitudes in the work place make succession planning a priority for many firms, while larger players are tackling the challenges of staff retention and market positioning.

 

With a combined turnover of over £1bn and over 230,000 employed in accountancy firms across Scotland and over 30,000 in Northern Ireland, a career in the accountancy profession can offer a varied technically stimulating role and the opportunity to build lasting business partnerships.

 

Our dedicated team of specialist consultants, including a seasoned accountancy recruitment business founder and a former EY Auditor, have over 20 years’ experience spread across our Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast offices. This specialist team are focused on finding the perfect match for vacancies at all levels of accountancy practice, including delivering the right strategic fit for both candidates and clients at Director and Partner level.

  • Securing a more varied role such as moving from Audit to Accounts or Accounts to Corporate Finance
