Our accountancy and finance specialists are searching for professionals like you for temporary, contract and permanent positions within a wide range of sectors.
Reed's accountancy and finance specialists use their local knowledge and market expertise to match you to your ideal role, depending on your individual needs.
We work across all sectors including professional services, commerce and industry and public sector.
Each of our expert consultants specialise in one of four areas of expertise – leadership, qualified and QBE, unqualified and part-qualified, and practice. This means that, whatever position you’re looking to find, you will work with an accountancy and finance specialist who can match you to the perfect firm, considering your ideal requirements, and find you the best jobs in accountancy and finance.
We understand that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to looking for work. This is why we offer bespoke service level agreements to you and work in complete confidentiality.
Reed knows that transactional accountants are critical to the ongoing success of accountancy and finance teams, which is why we ensure we place professionals into roles in which they will have the opportunity to make a real difference to their team.
Our national scale and local market knowledge means that our accountancy and finance specialists have detailed knowledge of both your local market and wider industry trends. Using this information, they locate the best organisations and accountancy jobs for your next career move.
We recruit for a range of transactional positions, including credit control, accounts payable and accounts receivable, and payroll.
Part-qualified and QBE
Reed has access to a wide range of roles suitable for part-qualified and qualified by experience (QBE) professionals. Our experts take a consultative approach to your job search, partnering with you from when you enter the job market and charting your career journey as you gain qualifications and experience.
When you look for your next career move in this area of accountancy and finance, our consultants work with you to identify the position and organisations where you will gain the qualifications, or the experience, you need to move up the career ladder.
Whether you are interested in supporting an SME or joining a large corporate organisation, we work with a wide range of companies who offer accountant, management accountant, and tax accountant positions which are suited to professionals who are part qualified or qualified by experience.
