Seeking Top Strategic Talent?

Identifying the perfect candidate for your organization can be challenging.  Internal recruiters are oftentimes charged with the task of seeking candidates for multiple disciplines while trying to ‘do more with less’. Let us help you gain access to quality talent which suits your technical accounting and finance needs. By working with an AAFA Affiliate, you gain access to:

Thorough Screening Process

We are highly selective regarding the individuals we represent.  We are focused on the best candidates, which allow us the ability to focus on quality as opposed to quantity.

Efficient Use of Resources

Human Resources and/or Internal Recruiting teams are faced with the ever-present challenge of ‘doing more with less’.  This makes it challenging to access to specialized talent pools, interview thousands of candidates for multiple roles, and ultimately hire the perfect candidate. Each hiring manager and recruiter’s time is stretched thin making it difficult to hire within a reasonable time frame.  Our network, candidate pool, and specialized focus can help your company save time and money.  Not only do we have immediate access to potential candidates, we are able to understand motivating factors to ensure retention, reducing additional costs associated with a ‘wrong hire’.
