Firms back new recruitment scheme

A clearing house for accountancy vacancies has been set up by the the North West Society of Chartered Accountants with the support of sixty accountancy firms operating in the area.

Preston-based Norwest Recruit will operate out of the society’s office for members and non-members in the North West, but not in Manchester or Merseyside.

According to Roy Barraclough, administrator of the North West SCA, firms supporting the initiative ranged from ‘large international accountancy organisations with offices in the North West, to smaller regional practices’.

Barraclough said Norwest Recruit offers an economical and effective service to professional accountancy firms and to other companies seeking to recruit finance personnel.

‘Ideally Norwest Recruit would be the first resort for firms with vacancies, and for people wanting to change jobs, whether they are qualified chartered accountants, or non-qualified staff,’ he explained.

Norwest Recruit is also expected to benefit students and newly qualified accountants, giving them easy access to vacancies in their own localities.
