Executive Recruiters for Accounting


Your accounting recruitment agency

Delivering top-tier financial reporting talent

Financial health is the backbone of any successful business. The critical role bookkeeping and accounting positions play in organizations is one reason recruiting experienced accounting talent can be a challenge, especially in a competitive job market. As one of the premier search firms in Canada, Lock Search Group’s accounting recruiters have the industry expertise and extensive candidate network to connect businesses with highly-skilled accountants, auditors, risk analysts, and other finance professionals that companies need on their teams.

Finding candidates with the right experience and skills for the role is just one part of making a successful hire. Just as important is finding people who are a fit for your company culture, share your organization values, and are ready to grow their career with your team. At Lock Search Group, we take pride in building relationships with both the clients we represent and the candidates we source for their roles. The genuine connections we form make us a true recruitment partner who understands the unique needs of your business and can find solutions to even the most complex recruitment challenge. From tax, audit, and bookkeeping employees to executive talent to manage your accounts, you can count on a Lock Search recruiter to deliver results that will take your business to the next level.

We work with a diverse set of accounting companies

Hiring trustworthy and experienced auditor and assurance professionals isn’t easy. These roles require a high degree of transparency and a commitment to ethics, along with up-to-date knowledge of complex and constantly-evolving regulatory requirements and a willingness to work long hours during peak audit seasons. Lock Search recruiters understand these challenges and work diligently to connect clients with audit and assurance talent that meets the demands of their roles.
Effective bookkeeping is fundamental to maintain financial records, track expenses, and manage the revenue in organizations. As more businesses rely on cloud-based systems, accounting software, and other technology, accounting professionals increasingly need to be tech-savvy and adaptable, along with having thorough knowledge of accounting principles. The candidates in Lock Search Group’s network have the industry and technology knowledge, along with the attention to detail, organization, and communication skills they need to effectively manage your company’s finances.
As the professionals who oversee the finance and accounting operations across an organization, controllers have a crucial role in maintaining a company’s financial health. From financial reporting to tax planning to compliance with federal regulations, a controller needs to have comprehensive knowledge of business finances, something that’s not easy to find in today’s competitive job market. This is where an experienced recruiting firm can make the difference in connecting with the right talent for your company.
Financial analysts, finance managers, and business intelligence experts are key players to ensure that companies make smart financial decisions that will help them achieve their strategic goals. The market for talent with these specialized skills is very competitive, however, and finding people with the experience and credentials you need can be a challenge. Partnering with Lock Search Group gives you access to a broad candidate network so you can hire the right financial planning talent faster.
Tax laws are complicated and constantly changing. Add in the fierce competition for candidates who have experience with business tax regulations, and hiring effective tax accountants, managers, and analysts can become a major challenge. Lock Search Group’s tax recruiters understand both the demands of the tax sector and what these professionals want from an employer, connecting our clients with the tax experts who can ensure their business finances stay in compliance.
