Placement of Audit Semi-Senior at a Top20 Firm


In the ever-evolving landscape of professional aspirations, our narrative unfolds with a LinkedIn connection following a professional recommendation by a colleague as they sought a new role at a Top 20 firm. Due to the time-sensitive nature, an initial call took place to understand their situation and provide impartial advice. This call occurred while I was in a restaurant, waiting for my food, and so was cut short but promptly picked back up.


This approach solidified our commitment to timely job searches when needed. A compelling CV was crafted later that day, along with a handpicked list of Top 20 and prominent regional firms that champion progress, inclusivity, and robust support for ACA ICAEW qualifications.


Within a couple of weeks, a series of interviews unfolded with a diverse array of clients. A standout opportunity at a Top 20 firm emerged after a seamless 1st stage interview conducted within their office, and an attractive offer was delivered 24 hours later, coupled with a mutually agreed-upon start date the following week.


"Hadley's mentorship was pivotal in navigating the intricacies of the interview process. His adept coaching on articulating responses and unwavering updates provided a sense of assurance. Hadley's far-reaching connections within the recruitment sphere became evident during my interviews, highlighting his esteemed reputation in the profession. My heartfelt thanks for his exceptional support. Without hesitation, I would turn to Hadley for future career transitions and highly recommend others to do the same!"
