Placement of a Private Client Associate Director, Top 10, Birmingham


At the time of approaching our candidate, they weren’t actively looking in the market but had been reflecting on spending 10 years in Big 4 and what might be next in their career.

Having spent a large period of their career specialising in employee incentives & reward, they had concluded that they wanted to secure a role with a focus on Private Client Tax as this is an area that they had particularly enjoyed at an earlier stage of their career.

Through our conversations, we were able to identify a potential opportunity with a Top 10 client of ours who is currently looking to grow their Private Client Tax offering in the Midlands.


Our Candidate had been weighing up their options in terms of the next stages of their career, reflecting on the work they really enjoyed doing and the type of firm they wanted to work in.

Charles Magill first approached our candidate two years prior to the conversation which resulted in the successful placement. Charles had taken the time to establish a relationship with the candidate over a period of time.

“I’d worked in the tax profession for several years before I met Charles and had encountered a number of different recruitment professionals along the way. I was very impressed with Charles’ personable approach and professionalism from the offset when he approached me about a potential role that was clearly tailored to my background and skillset.

“Charles was keen to understand my future career aspirations and the key factors that would need to underpin a potential move. It was also clear that he had a deep knowledge of his client’s requirements so that potential roles could be dovetailed with suitable candidates who fit these criteria."


“Once the right position had been identified, Charles was integral in guiding me through the process providing insight and practical guidance in a friendly and supportive manner along the way.”

We have ensured that both the role and the firm is the right fit for our candidate, meeting their current and long-term requirements, ensuring they are in a position that they enjoy and will help them achieve their ultimate career ambitions.

“I would not hesitate to recommend Charles for anyone contemplating a move or would like some expert and informed advice on the potential options available to them at any stage of their career.”
