PUBLIC ACCOUNTING institute CIPFA is to branch out into recruitment, supplying permanent finance staff at all levels, as well as interim HR professionals.
The new business will reportedly draw upon a pool of more than 2,500 professionals, and the expansion could be seen as a natural extension of its established interim financial recruitment offering.
Gill Kelly, associate director of the new arm, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer a permanent division and HR practice. As the public sector changes, so do we; now, we can provide a total service as CIPFA Recruitment Services.”
