Our accounting recruitment agency teams have seen consistent growth over the last few years through a difficult and challenging climate where many local competitors have ceased trading or lost staff.

We have only been able to achieve this through ensuring our approach is honest and consultative with the highest level of aftersales support. In turn, this has led to new business through referrals and the pleasure of working with candidates and clients who use us exclusively for their recruitment needs. 

About Accountancy

Accountancy is the measurement, processing and communication of financial information about economic entities. Accounting measures the results of an organisation's economic activities and conveys this information to a variety of users including investors, creditors, management, and regulators. The terms accounting and financial reporting are often used as synonyms.

Accounting can be divided into several fields including financial accounting, management accounting, auditing, and tax accounting. Accounting information systems are designed to support accounting functions and related activities.

Financial accounting focuses on the reporting of an organization's financial information including the preparation of financial statements, to external users of the information such as investors, regulators and suppliers.

The recording of financial transactions so that summaries of the financials may be presented in financial reports is known as bookkeeping, of which double-entry bookkeeping is the most common system.

About Finance

Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments including the dynamics of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of different degrees of uncertainty and risk. Finance can also be defined as the science of money management. A key point in finance is the time value of money, which states that purchasing power of one unit of currency can vary over time. Finance aims to price assets based on their risk level and their expected rate of return. It can be broken into three different sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.

At Search, we have a vast array of finance recruitment agency professionals who specialise in sourcing and screening outstanding candidates who are eager and waiting to start a new role.
