Mercer Bradley: Specialists in Financial Recruitment and Job Fit Analysis
Many businesses are still recovering from the global financial crisis and are now starting to rehire for accounting teams that were reduced during tougher times. The demand for temporary and contract accountants is also heating up to satisfy growing business demands. The war for talent, especially accounting talent, that was raging up until 2008 was put on hold as our attention turned to the crisis. However, demographic factors show that almost a third of the accounting population will retire soon, and with growing demand, current accounting student enrolment is insufficient. What does this all mean?
The savvy hiring manager recognizes the value that a professional recruiting firm brings by tapping into the "hidden" candidate market, the calibre of candidates represented, the efficiency of focusing internal resources on business issues, the cost effectiveness of finding the right resources quickly and the flexibility available with contract and/or full-time placement services.
Let us partner with you in finding top finance and accounting talent.

Many of our clients have learned the value of utilizing accountants on a temporary, contract or consulting basis. It might be to cover off an interim vacancy while hiring, or vacation time, a sick leave, maternity leave, hiring freezes or peak work periods. Work/life balance is a common cry these days and by bringing in temporary help on an as-needed basis, managers can avoid employee burn out or turnover caused by excessive overtime or heavy workloads.
Sometimes businesses are in a transition caused by merger/acquisition, divesture, new ERP systems, changes in management, government regulation, or audits, etc. During these tumultuous times, many business leaders will bring in senior-level and highly qualified help on a contract, project or consulting basis.
