Finance Recruiters

Finance is a competitive industry that is undergoing rapid change and evolution as new regulations and technologies impact the industry landscape. This means that many employers are looking for new skill sets to help meet these needs. It may seem difficult to sort and evaluate candidates yourself and discover the best talent amid a sea of seemingly qualified applicants. That's where ContractRecruiter can help. We can take care of the hard-to-fill positions, bringing you talented people who don't just get the job done but also integrate seamlessly into your unique company culture.

Every business is different, and we take the time to learn and understand your organization's values and goals. We recognize the subtle differences that separate good candidates from great candidates. Our recruiters have access to deep candidate pools within finance, and they excel at assessing their strengths and weaknesses to ensure high quality hires.

Why Outsource Finance Recruiting?

There are numerous reasons outsourcing recruitment makes sense, especially in hiring for challenging-to-fill finance positions.

Experienced Finance Recruiters Understand the Skill Gap

Many of the competencies required by today's financial professionals are still relatively new on the scene. Modern businesses use advanced technologies like cloud computing, blockchain and artificial intelligence many employees aren't yet skilled with.

Seasoned finance executive recruiters understand this gap and know what it takes to attract A-list talent with these emerging skills.

Skilled Professionals Streamline the Process

Lengthy recruitment cycles and manual workflows have become a challenge for finance recruiting. Millennials and other digitally adept candidates are comfortable with technology and shorter recruiting processes. To stay competitive, businesses must embrace the approaches this talent pool prefers.

Veteran finance recruiters use the latest technologies and digital communication tools to save time, boost efficiency and improve the process.

Specialists Support Outstanding Candidate Experiences

Personalization in recruiting has become an increasingly vital concept as more and more candidates expect a customized hiring journey. These small touches help keep talent engaged and emphasize the human element. Straightforward and seamless hiring experiences are equally as important to potential hires.

A seasoned financial recruiter creates a better candidate experience with bespoke messaging, intuitive technology and responsive hiring processes.

The traditional finance foundation just doesn’t cut it in today’s competitive global talent market. Candidates need tech skills and experience in areas including cloud-based software, data analytics and advanced modeling techniques, SQL, and business intelligence like IBM Cognos. Candidates with advanced Excel skills, risk and compliance expertise and strong communication and collaboration skills will be in demand.

Finance is a highly competitive hiring market, requiring strong succession planning and solid recruiting practices.

Major impacts on the finance industry from new technology, big data, regulations, and cyber-security issues, along with tough new competition from Internet payment processors Google, Amazon, Apple, PayPal, and Square are causing disruptions in traditional finance. Big data in particular will have an impact in finance recruiting, prompting the need for big data engineers and data scientists.

A recent Salary Guide prepared by accounting and finance staffing giant Robert Half discusses a competitive hiring market for more than 400 positions. From corporate and public accounting to banking to financial services, Robert Half advises that higher salaries, recruiting incentives, and solid offers and counteroffers will be required for hiring success with finance positions this year.

Finance candidates commonly receive multiple offers so employers and hiring managers have to be prepared to do more along with their own offers, including focusing on candidate engagement and meeting and exceeding competitor offers.

The need for succession planning is taking on an urgent status in finance with baby boomers leaving on a regular basis. Senior-level openings often create other vacancies and shifts in the workforce as people advance, having a ripple effect throughout an organization. Strong succession planning and solid recruiting practices that are proactive instead of reactive include offering phased retirement options that keep valuable knowledge and experience through a transitional period and focusing on all levels when retirement vacancies loom large.
