  • "The advice I received during the initial meeting stage was excellent- extremely thorough, detailed and relevant.  I was given support in freshening up my CV, in particular we were able to work together to expand my key achievement and profile section which was extremely helpful.  I felt they really took the time to listen to my experience and requirements …"

    Financial Accountant (FCCA) Public Sector
  • "John stood out from the other recruiters I have worked with.  He asked insightful questions about my career to date and my motivations to leave which led us to a very detailed conversation around the options open to me and considerations around my next step.  I was expecting a slow recruitment process because my requirements were niche and specific – John swiftly arranged appropriate meetings for me and I secured a new position very soon after our initial conversations. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for advice within the accountancy and finance sector."

    Internal Recruitment Manager – PLC Business (Construction Sector)
  • "The ARG previously recruited an Assistant Financial Controller within one of our Groups subsidiary businesses.  The attention to detail and customer service throughout the selection process was second to none.  Genuine knowledge of the finance market meant we were given  clear guidance and advice around candidate availability and package benchmarking...  Highly recommend."

    Finance Manager SME Engineering Group
  • "We worked with The ARG to recruit a Financial Controller into our business.  They were extremely helpful throughout the process – initially even supporting us to produce a detailed job specification following our first meeting.  The pace at which a relevant group of potential candidates was provided was impressive and we received regular contact throughout ensuring we could move swiftly.  As the business grows we expect to have further recruitment needs in our accounts team and we would return to The ARG without hesitation."

Thanks!"

    Assistant Accountant - Privately owned SME
  • "Every now and then someone or something comes along and really stands out from the crowd. In my experience as both a client and candidate, in recruitment that doesn’t happen too often. What makes ARG stand out for me? Passion & commitment, to both candidates and clients, coupled with a no-nonsense approach. I never once felt like I was one of a hundred candidates. The professional, yet personal approach is the perfect recruitment recipe; ascertaining very quickly what I was looking for in terms of both role and working environment and less than a month later I was accepting an offer! I have absolutely zero hesitation in recommending ARG to both candidates and clients – I’m confident you won’t be disappointed, I certainly wasn’t!"

  • "The Accountancy Recruitment Group were a great help throughout the whole recruitment process. They understood my needs and matched my skillset to 2 great roles instead of bombarding me with multiple unfitting options. I would highly recommend if you are looking for help securing your next role!"

    Senior Financial Accountant - FTSE 250 Group
  • "Out of all the agencies I spoke to in my recent job search The ARG massively stood out from the crowd. They take such an interest in both the company and the candidate and work hard to partner up the right candidate with the right role. The bespoke service is exceptional and is refreshingly different to the "I'll send you 5 CV's and hope one sticks culture of most of the 'big firm' agencies". The ARG gave me the confidence to seek out the 4 day role I desired after having my first child."

    Finance Business Partner - Financial Services
  • "The ARG put me forward for a role last year and I wanted to share my feedback, as I really appreciated the support. They were able to share his insights into the organisation, people, and role, which they had clearly taken time to build up as part of understanding their requirements. This information all served as helpful background to take into interview, and proved consistent with my own experiences when I met with them.All in all a very positive experience"

    Senior Commercial Finance Manager
  • "The ARG's approach to recruitment varies massively from the other big firms. Really drilling down into your experience to be absolutely certain you are right for a role before sending your details across. I found them extremely helpful and always had time to answer my questions. I would recommend them highly to anybody looking for their next move in finance!"

    Management Accountant - SME (distribution sector)
  • "I was thoroughly impressed with the manner and professionalism displayed during my application process. The attention to detail in the build up to my interviews was fantastic and I could not have been better prepared. The feedback provided was excellent and prompt. I would use The ARG without hesitation in the future, to recruit and as an applicant""

    Management Accountant - Manufacturing PLC
  • We had the benefit of working with The ARG previously when they helped us recruit within our finance team - so when we most recently needed to hire a new Finance Manager, we had no hesitation in calling!

    Once again, the response was swift and professional. They produced an excellent list of shortlisted candidates which made our job easy. We recruited an excellent Finance Manager who has made a real difference to our business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The ARG.

    MD - Specialist Care Provider
  • Working with The ARG was a breath of fresh air from the get go. I wasn’t applying for roles at the time however I was approached about a role which meant taking the step from Financial Controller to FD - which is something I had been considering for some time.

    Having been working in the same role for over 6 years, I really appreciated the thorough interview prep which gave me the confidence to properly highlight my skills.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch again for my next challenge, and will certainly be asking for some advice when hiring into my new team!

    CIMA Qualified FD
  • Confidentiality was a hugely important aspect to the role we were recruiting for - so choosing the right agency to work with was a really important part of the process for us.

    We knew from initial conversations with The ARG that they stood out above the rest for us. Their approach and attitude towards partnering with clients gave us confidence that they fully understood the goals and values of our business and that this would be accurately reflected to prospective candidates -- whilst assuring us it would be handled with the sensitivity required!

    We found the perfect individual who has fit straight into our team and is making a huge difference in just a short amount of time!

    Director - Yorkshire
  • I would highly recommend The ARG to anybody looking for a change in role. I wasn't 100% sure what I was looking for when I first got in contact however they helped me secure the perfect role in an incredible company.

    From the very beginning communication was easy and transparent and always approachable and helpful.

    Candidate - 1st step from practice into PE backed group
  • When we were on the hunt for our new FD we didn’t hesitate but to work exclusively with ARG. We recruit for a living, but as a result dedicate ourselves fully to recruiting for our clients - we wanted to work with an organisation who would prioritise our needs the way we prioritise our client’s.

    They didn’t disappoint. Such a fast, efficient and quality end-to-end process. After interviewing 3 top candidates an obvious perfect fit for us stood out. We couldn’t be more delighted with our exceptional new FD. Thank you!
