Search Accountancy & Finance announces expansion to Leicester

After benefiting from a highly successful and profitable presence throughout Scotland and the North West, Search Accountancy & Finance have appointed two industry specialists – Sarah Lydon and Jaimini Popat - to lead the division’s expansion into Leicester. 

Having formerly been employed with a globally-renowned competitor, both share a total of over 14 years of experience in providing recruitment solutions to the Accountancy and Finance market. Sarah has been appointed as Divisional Manager to build and develop the recruitment team and will be supported by her first mate, Jaimini.

Each bring a unique set of strengths to Search and have a proven track record of building long-term and profitable relationships by providing specialist recruitment solutions to businesses both in the UK and overseas.

Sarah, who boasts global recruitment experience in the finance market and an impressive history in placing temp and perm candidates into roles within the Finance, Education and Retail sectors, is a proactive and knowledgeable business advisor who is results-driven and highly experienced in operational management.

Jaimini, who previously founded and developed a payroll and credit desk from scratch, is a determined and tenacious recruitment professional with a knack for generating and retaining business. Her thorough understanding of the industry and vast experience in placing both temporary and permanent candidates, gives her keen insight into the diverse recruitment criteria of different companies across the country.

When asked about her overall vision and goals for the team in Leicester, Sarah said: “I’m thrilled to be leading the expansion of one of Search’s most long-standing and prominent divisions. I intend to fully invest in growing and strengthening our arm in the East Midlands, generating business that will ripple through to the rest of our verticals within the Leicester office and thus benefit Search at large.

“I will strive to ensure that we provide an excellent service to our candidates, with innovative recruitment solutions to our clients." 

Jaimini agrees, saying: “Our goal is to be the go-to recruitment service for the accountancy and finance market. With our existing presence having already made an impact in the marketplace, we will be bringing on new clients and growing the new team at Search.”

Peter Preston, Director and Head of Professional Services in England, said: “This is an exciting time for Search Accountancy & Finance. Given the passion, dedication and vast industry knowledge they possess, I have every confidence that both Sarah and Jaimini – along with further hires to follow - will be instrumental in establishing a high profile and successful presence in Leicester.

“We have a broad offering in terms of the market specialisms covered by Search, so this expansion will enable our multiple divisions to better compliment one another and therefore offer a complete service proposition to clients based across the Midlands,” he continued. 

“In growing our Accountancy & Finance team in Leicester, we need the best of the best to join us. We are currently looking for recruitment professionals who are passionate about the industry, have ability to establish profitable relationships, and strive to provide a service that stands out from our competitors,” Sarah adds.
