Why It Makes Sense to Work With an Accounting Staffing Agency

If hiring isn’t your core business, leave the details to a company that specializes in them.

You need to hire for an accounting or finance position, and you’ve been putting it off. Why? Maybe it’s because finding the right candidate seems impossible. Maybe it’s because you just don’t have time to work through all the details required to find the right candidate. Whatever the reason, there’s an easier way: Let a staffing firm that specializes in finding the right accounting or finance candidates do it for you.

Wait. Before you dismiss the idea completely, consider this: Letting a staffing firm find the right candidate could save you time and money, and help you find exactly the person you’re looking for.

How Much Is Your Time Worth?

How much is your time worth? Would you rather spend those resources trying to find the right person for an open position or concentrating on things that make a difference for your bottom line?

If you’re trying to hire someone with a specific set of skills, you’ll likely have to place a ton of job postings in just the right places. That takes a considerable amount of time, but it will probably lead to a stack of resumes you’ll have to wade through, most of them not even remotely qualified for the position you need to fill. Then there’s the prescreening, and the background checks, and the reference checks. And that’s all before you even get to the interviewing process. It’s probably the largest part of why you have been putting it off.

Alternatively, you could reach out to a staffing company that specializes in finding the right candidate for accounting and finance positions. The staffing company will handle all the ‘busy work’ of hiring, which means you can allocate your time — one of your most valuable resources — to focusing on what’s important to your core business.

Finding the Right Candidate

Depending on the position you’re trying to fill, you may also struggle with finding the right candidate for the job. The more specialized candidate you need the harder it’s going to be to find the right person. Staffing agencies usually have a large pool of talented candidates from which they can choose. And a staffing agency like The Robert Joseph Group draws talented people who have held high-level positions (think CPAs and MBAs) in a variety of industries, so they have the knowledge that you need, without having to look for months to find the right person.

As an added benefit, a financial or accounting staffing agency brings a level of industry understanding to the table to make your search even easier. The firm understands the finance and accounting job market and can help you make informed decisions about the pay and benefit packages you need to offer to secure the candidate of your choosing.
