As a Dublin based recruitment agency for accountants, and accounting practices throughout Ireland, our focus on precision is matched only by our clients. When it comes to accounts jobs we’re the preferred choice of many of Ireland’s top tier accountants too.
Recruiting Finance & Accounting Personnel
Indicative in large part of its multi-national client base – built over 20 years in practice – is the fact that, in the recruitment of key Finance and Accounting personnel, Hall Recruitment offers an approach akin to that of large accountancy offshoots and similar professional practice recruiters and measurably different from those of High Street agencies.
Co-founder and director, Vivienne Hall explains: “for the majority of our clients, quality over quantity is the guiding principle. More important to them is that we secure the finest accountancy candidates available to fill roles that arise rather than we speed the process or penny pinch on effort or cost.”
“In our experience, clients of their calibre are more concerned to get a standard of service and a quality of interest and attention akin to best-in-the-business expectations” she said. “Being a small, recruitment agency for accountants professionals – staffed by seasoned professionals and not over serviced by apprentices – we avoid the pressure of having to go for numbers. That benefits our clients in so many ways. We are helped to reach beyond the ordinary by understanding the importance of time – time needed to properly study and evaluate a client’s need; time needed to agree procedures and frame interviews; time needed to complete enquiries, to carry out reference checks and to gather all that is required to deliver applicants that are a perfect fit. Not just the perfect fit to the accountant job description but to their business and its culture”

Retaining Your Key Recruitment Partner
“In recruiting accountancy personnel – as important to a company’s operations as Financial Directors, Accountants and Finance Officers of senior importance are – our preference is to work on a retained fee basis. Paid in part on commencement, it is an arrangement that has proven beneficial to clients – by enabling us to conduct the painstaking enquiry upon which good recruitment processes are based and by freeing both parties from the straightjacket of standard fee charging.”
“By fostering a consultative relationship between client and recruiter, we are enabled to acquire a better and closer understanding of a client’s need whilst sweeping away any temptation to take just what the market throws up.”
“At Hall Recruitment, ‘good enough’ is never good enough! Our painstaking approach is a core corporate principle that guides our team of career-long recruiters, artisans whose experience in the business exceeds the majority working in the sector generally. A product of this – and an additional benefits to clients – is our insistence that we be obligated, if thought necessary, to seek answers to questions that are especially important to clients, those three-to-five most important points dear to a client for which responses would be sought.”
Another feature of the Hall Recruitment approach is that short-listed accountancy job applicants would be invited, if thought necessary, to utilise a platform that we would provide to video record their interview and responses to questions, all to be supplied (with CVs) to the employer when making a final selection.
THE PARTNERSHIP APPROACH
Describing their methodology as ‘one founded on knowledge and experience’, Vivienne Hall summarises its appeal as follows: “by removing from managers the need to waste valuable time wading through a sea of CVs, employers avoid the pitfalls that can plague a go-it-alone recruiter whilst giving us the responsibility to do the heavy lifting under a cost-effective plan undertaken in partnership with our clients.”
