Recruiting for Tax? How do you guarantee you meet the industry’s best, the top 10% performers, without wasting precious time?

A yearlong study conducted by a team from McKinsey & Co. - a study involving 77 companies and almost 6,000 managers and executives - concluded that the most important corporate resource over the next 20 years will be talent.

I know you don't need to be told that there is a scarcity of talent. You want someone you can partner with, who can secure you great talent and do it quickly.

As targets become more challenging, securing high quality talent is paramount. Creative Tax Recruitment is a leading tax search specialist based in London. We pride ourselves on being the search consultancy and enjoy nothing more than diving deep into our network to secure talented staff who can really add value to your team.


Our reach and depth of relationships across the industry enable us to secure ‘best in class’ performers, people outside of your network. 


We hear stories of employers meeting as many as a dozen ‘average’ tax professionals and still not securing the right person. Time is precious; you have better things to do. 


Securing high quality talent needs patience, skill and a well thought out recruitment plan.


We are adept at identifying the right talent for your specific organisation, convincing them to meet with you AND getting them to say yes to your offer. In our opinion the ability to achieve both are equally important in todays competitive market.
