Professional hiring agency specializing in exceptional accounting talent on a temporary, temp-to-perm or direct hire basis.
Business runs on numbers. All companies need experienced, business-savvy accounting talent to negotiate the dynamic environments they compete in. Since 2010, KBC Staffing, a professional contract recruiter, has been sourcing exceptional accounting talent, from senior level managers to entry level clerks, to expanding businesses on a temporary, temp-to-perm or direct hire basis.
Accounting is no longer the arcane, routine, business function that it had been for decades. Today it’s not enough to be technically competent. Today’s accounting professional needs to be engaged in the business world that is turning their profession upside down. And that means to get optimum performance from new accounting staff, you can no longer rely on just a CV. You need to go deeper.
A startup, boutique, public relations firm started off with a bang. They had outstanding PR staff, a few anchor clients, and good billings. What they didn’t have was a senior financial person to develop procedures and processes. All accounting functions were outsourced to a local bookkeeping service. They knew they had a tiger by the tail and they needed a CFO now.
Our accounting recruiter specialist met with the partners, developed objectives, expectations, standards, and identified traits that would be a good fit for the agency’s culture. The big challenge was timing. The client wanted an instant fix. We suggested, and the client accepted, that we provide an accounting professional who specialized in establishing accounting procedures from the ground up on a temporary contract basis.
The accounting recruiter specialist knew we had a senior accounting manager with a strong background in acquisitions in our register. His experience included converting acquired companies to the accounting policy and procedures of the acquiring company. He terminated the bookkeeping contract, hired a small accounting staff from KBC Staffing and trained them in the new procedures. He put his background to good use, designed and implemented financial controls for the PR client, and established a platform a senior financial manager could walk into.
At KBC Staffing, we go deeper. Our success as an employment agency is built on our commitment to fully understand both our clients and our candidates. It’s not just a placement order and it’s not just a job; we want a perfect partnership between client and candidate. Our extensive network of accounting professionals is routinely updated. Most of the accounting pros in that register are not looking for work because they are succeeding where they are. But almost all will listen to a new opportunity, particularly if it’s a perfect fit for their own career plans, values, and culture.
And this is how you turn someone else’s accounting star into your accounting star. Stay competitive. Stay staffed. Contact the accounting specialists at KBC Staffing today.
We were panicking and KBC Staffing came up with the perfect solution. Bringing in a startup specialist was a brilliant idea and gave us a quick fix that filled an immediate need. We look forward to working with KBC Staffing in filling our permanent CFO position.
