Employer success stories
We at ACCA Careers love building new relationships with employers around the world, posting exciting career opportunities for future and current members, producing career advice content and watching people interact with it on social media.
And like the accounting and finance professionals we support, we too love numbers, such as seeing year in and year out more people register on the site, more CVs uploaded, more jobs posted, more views of our advice articles, more social media followers.
But what we love most is hearing from employers about the quality ACCA candidates they’ve found on ACCA Careers and hired into their teams. After all, bringing together the best employers from around the world and ACCA’s wonderful future and current members is the name of the game.
So we’re proud to showcase below some of the latest employer feedback highlighting the quality of the candidates they found on ACCA Careers.
High expectations met with high quality
'You don’t join Mazars by coincidence, you choose Mazars: a global school of excellence where you will be challenged to develop and grow,' said Shiu Hang Fung, practising director, Audit & Assurance, at Mazars Hong Kong. It was with these high expectations in mind that the company turned to ACCA Careers to find the best accountancy talent, and as an ACCA Approved Employer, Mazars are able to advertise jobs at no cost on ACCA Careers.
'We found ACCA a very effective platform in reaching the target accounting professional we are looking for. Also, the virtual career fair they held last year has been a helpful tool for us to perform remote recruitment under the pandemic. We look forward to collaborating with ACCA in upcoming events, Fung said.
Short-timeframe? No problem!
As a non-UK based employer, Sheeba Mirza, an HR Executive with professional services firm Affiniax Partners in the UAE, was also able to advertise roles at no cost. She advertised four roles on ACCA Careers, which needed urgent engagement, so we also posted these on our LinkedIn page. The jobs were live for four days, attracted over 100 CV applications and by the end all vacancies had been filled through ACCA Careers. ‘We were delighted to recruit four excellent candidates and will definitely use ACCA Careers again for all our finance roles,’ Mirza said.
Julie Mott, managing director of UK-based financial recruitment specialists Howett Thorpe, has been delighted with the response to advertising jobs on ACCA Careers. ‘Using the platform was a great cost effective service that provided excellent responses. I thoroughly recommend ACCA Careers to any UK employers or recruiters seeking the best finance and accountancy talent,’ she said.
Baker Tilly Malaysia has also been very impressed with how easy it is to advertise roles on ACCA Careers and how good the response is. In order to remove any time/cost/resource implications for Baker Tilly, we used the 'Job
mirror' process, in which we automatically post all their accountancy/finance roles to ACCA Careers, sending interested candidates back to the roles on the Baker Tilly careers pages to complete their applications. 'We have been very impressed with how easy Job Mirror makes advertising our roles. The response has been excellent – we have hired several ACCA candidates and we’d strongly recommend ACCA Careers to any firm looking to recruit accountancy talent.’
Meanwhile, Peter Willis, finance director at Futon Company, has been delighted with the quantity and quality of candidates delivered by ACCA Careers, and at zero cost. ‘We successfully recruited an excellent apprentice and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ACCA Careers to employers looking to hire future finance talent,’ he said.
Finally, Aloma Odogwu, in her previous role as SSO Recruitment Manager at Schlumberger in Romania, used ACCA Careers to access ACCA’s wide network of qualified accountants and finance professionals in an ongoing and expansive recruitment drive. The company also posted at no cost and we saved them time and resources by posting all the roles to the site on their behalf. ‘Since our collaboration, ACCA Careers has become an important source of hires for our Financial hub in Bucharest. Prompt responses, customer oriented, the ACCA Careers team has been partnering with us at a high level, providing us an excellent service,’ she said.
