Potential new tax job – is it the right one for you?

Many tax specialists feel that they don’t need to actively look for a new job as the job will come to them. In some cases that may prove to be true – but will it be the right job for you? Will it be the best job you could get, one that will steer your career in the direction that is right for you? If you are going to move, how do you know you couldn’t get a more suitable job elsewhere?

In recent months some of our candidates are telling us that they are being contacted out of the blue by accountancy firms, who they haven’t met, trying to get them to join their team. Now who wouldn’t be flattered by that – especially if the call is from say a partner in a prominent firm who has “heard good things about you”!

There is one obvious downside to being on the receiving end of this call – it is essentially an out and out sales call. It is likely you will only be told about the benefits of working for the firm concerned, not the downsides and certainly not the possible benefits of working for a competitor or staying in your current role. I don’t imagine many callers saying “please join us, we are desperate to get some new people in as half of our team have recently left!”. It is this sort of background information that we, at The Tax Recruitment Company, will provide our candidates, alongside other market information.

The internet has made a transactional approach to life much easier. Who now books their summer holiday sitting across the desk from a travel agent or collects a heap of glossy pamphlets from an estate agent when searching for their flat or house? Tax recruitment agents might seem to be a thing of the past but a good experienced recruitment agent who really knows the market and operates in an ethical manner can help you make sure your career move is the right one for you and not just right for the firm who have reached out to you.

You should think of us as someone who will: –

  • be able to tell you about opportunities right across the market not just with one organisation
  • want to work with you over the long term and build a relationship,
  • provide you with balanced advice over the course of your career,
  • act as a sounding board for your own thoughts,
  • help ensure your package keeps up with the market rate
  • keep you informed when relevant roles come up (without pushing you into something that’s not right for you)

If you wish to make your next move the right move, The Tax Recruitment Company can help you in many ways.

We can offer free personalised career coaching to help you ensure that you identify and consider your values when planning your career path, and ensure that the next role is the right step on that path.

We will be able to provide you with lots of advice on the roles available and the firms offering them, and ensure that this will work for you and your career.
