Placement of an Audit Partner, Top 10, Milton Keynes


Our candidate was not actively looking at the time of speaking with Charles Magill from Adlestrop Consulting regarding this opportunity.

Our candidate had previously communicated with Charles and was open to hearing about the opportunity despite receiving regular calls from recruitment consultants and tending not to speak to them.

The individual was at a point in their career where they felt it was required to make a decision about long term career progression. 

Due to changes within the world of Audit and the regulatory environment becoming more stringent, our candidate felt that they didn't want to become an Audit Partner within their current firm having held the position of Associate Partner for a long period of time. They didn't want the pressure and additional stress of a Partner level role in the current audit environment. 

This led to considering "What is next?" and needing to have a good think about their long-term future. 


After taking the time to speak with Charles about this particular opportunity, our candidate found it refreshing to understand that there are a wealth of opportunities within the Top 10 accountancy for people like them.

Charles shared insight and knowledge of the market which enlightened them that there are many accountancy firms looking out for people with the right skill set and experience which was "opened my eyes to what the future may hold"

"I found the whole process enjoyable which stemmed from the wealth of knowledge that Charles has of the firm and the multiple senior placements Adlestrop Consulting have made.

“This demonstrated the trust they had in Charles as a recruitment consultant which spoke volumes for me with regard to both the firm and Charles as an individual who can help me."

We helped to facilitate a series of confidential conversations between our candidate and a number of senior individuals throughout the firm. This enabled both parties to understand what each had to offer, each other’s long term ambitions to ascertain if it was the right fit both professionally and culturally. 


"I am very confident that this is the correct next step in my career - right opportunity, right firm. 

"After spending all of my career with a Big 4 firm, it was the right time to make a move despite the COVID19 pandemic setting in during this time. I found Charles to be supportive throughout. He took the time to get to know me, clearly knows his client and understand what fits and what doesn't."
