Our client

Our client is an accountancy advisory business with offices in the North West, Yorkshire and London.  They are a challenger to the Big Four advisory businesses, mirroring a number of their service lines including corporate finance, financial due diligence, corporate restructuring, forensics and tax advisory.  The business was founded by ex Big Four leaders and offers a Partner led and price competitive alternative to the larger accountancy firms.

Initial scope

The business is seeking to expand via geography and service line and hence was keen to partner with an expert recruitment provider to mange the hiring process of Director and Partner level candidates capable of launching new business units.


The journey to date

Ignata has adopted a long term partnership arrangement with our client, working closely with its founders on an exclusive and retained basis to facilitate their growth strategy via the recruitment of critical Partner hires.  Ignata operates as an extension of our client’s business, providing honest and insightful advice to ensure the right decision is made by our client. We look forward to many more years working closely with this business to facilitate their growth and are proud to be making a genuine difference to their success in the marketplace via the recruitment of the highest calibre individuals.
