Roles I Recruit
The Public Practice team I oversee recruits’ roles at all levels from Partners to those people at the beginning of their careers in the following service lines: Accounting, Audit, General Practice, Outsourcing and various areas of Tax.
I am a specialist Public Practice recruiter covering Accounts, General Practice and Outsourcing from entry level to senior management.
I lead the Public Practice team which also covers Audit & Tax which consults for a wide variety of top, mid-tier and independent firms in the UK.
My career in recruitment began in 2006 recruiting within Accounting and Finance and I’ve never left! I spent the best part of 8 years working in, and latterly running, a regional team for a large corporate recruiter before moving into the London market within Professional Services for a smaller, reputable consultancy.
I progressed my career in London through to Senior Manager, running multiple teams, and was one of the driving forces behind a national change in their permanent recruitment process. I was then presented with the opportunity to help take a role requiring management of an existing team, as well as build a new one in Public Practice, which I did with success.
I have worked in both good and tough markets requiring me to constantly adapt to those conditions and tailor my approach to suit the needs of people in the recruitment process.
Outside of work
My ‘free’ time is spent with my two young children making sure they are more than entertained. I also finding time to sneak in a good podcast, cinema, live music, playing/watching football, fine dining and cooking.
I cannot thank Jonathan enough for all that he has done for me. He put me in contact with a fabulous firm that I would never have found on my own. Jonathan guided me through the interview process thoroughly which I was incredibly grateful for as it was my first interview in over 13 years! He gave me detailed feedback as soon as he received it and has kept in contact throughout my notice period to ensure this huge change for me ran smoothly. Jonathan is a really friendly and approachable person and genuinely wants to help you find the best job for you. He isn’t pushy and takes everything you say on board. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him if you are thinking of changing rolesBryony Fletcher Cloud Accounting Team Lead at Blu Sky
When I was looking for a change of firm, Jonathan was a fantastic help. From assisting me with my CV etc to finding a firm that was (and still is, two years later and counting) a brilliant fit, Jonathan was excellent. If I was looking to move firms again, he’d be my first phone call.Jim Wooton Semi Senior Accountant at GRANT HARROD LERMAN DAVIS LLP
It has been extremely refreshing to work with a recruiter who takes the time to fully understand what drives you, discovers what work you would enjoy and what your next role should offer to your career. Throughout the job seeking process Jonathan offered exemplary service, from beginning to end, keeping in contact and offering advice whenever needed. I really couldn’t recommend highly enough – and look forward to working with him in the future.Jake Adams Head of Business Technology & Change Management
