STRUGGLING TO FIND A NEW CHALLENGE WHERE YOU LIVE?
RELOCATION COULD BE THE ANSWER!!
Relocating can open up new opportunities you hadn't considered before to help enhance your career to develop your skills and experience. The other thing to bear in mind is that it doesn't need to be forever, you can always relocate back home or onto somewhere else further down the line. We can help you with that too!
A tax role we have recently taken on might be of interest if you are interested in developing your tax career. Take a look at this fantastic opportunity for a tax manager with an independent firm in an autonomous role in Northamptonshire . A great opportunity to advance your career as a senior member of the firm.
I have been involved in recruiting to the accountancy profession from the mid 90's and there has always been a demand for experienced professionals to work in Public Practice for a variety of roles but namely in; audit, tax, accountancy and corporate finance and at Wavelength we have helped develop the careers of qualified and part qualified professionals, many of whom are now Partners in their own firms. Whilst at the same time helping firms to grow and develop their own respective businesses by coming up with the right staff to complement their set up and goals.
One of the areas we have had success in is opening up the eyes for candidates to consider relocating to fulfil their dream move which may not be forthcoming in their current location, or there is just too much competition for the roles available and not everyone can have that job!
