Have to say a massive thanks Nils, I've worked with a lot of recruiters over the years but honestly you have provided the best service from start to finish. Really appreciate all of your work!
Candidate - London Finance Manager 2019 

Nils - Thank you for keeping me informed. That's where MA are a cut above other agencies because in all the years of working where I have had to use agencies for work I have been increasingly frustrated with them. They chase you in the beginning then when you go for an interview you do not get any feedback and I chase and chase and do not get any response. This is a 2 way process and agencies earn from me and of course I gain a new position so its got to be reciprocal and yet 99% of agencies don't seem to be fair about this at all.

MA have managed to get me 2 roles, both were excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed them, but in the past generally I have found work from advertising on the web etc myself. All I ask for is feedback whether that be positive or negative, I'm a big girl I can take it. What I don't want is to constantly chase and get no feedback when I have put myself out!!

We found the recruitment experience using Mature Accountants Ltd seamless. Nils was extremely helpful and supportive to our needs. By filtering potential candidates to match our requirements we were able to go through the process very quickly
Director - Trade Body Services London 

“We thought that finding a strong accountant for a part time FC maternity cover position would be a difficult task. MA proved us wrong. They quickly understood the dynamic and scope of our requirement and presented several motivated candidates with appropriate skills and experience. We were able to interview and select a within a quick turnaround period. With little handover from the incumbent, our new controller has quickly and efficiently taken up the reins.”

Guy Gibbons - Directors UK 

“Becoming an academy brings huge financial challenges and we found ourselves needing a part-time interim Finance Director. MA worked closely with us to help us clarify what we were looking for and (unlike some other agencies) only put forward for consideration those candidates that clearly met the agreed criteria. Don’t be fooled by the title of his business! With his help we recruited someone who is dynamic and much more than an accountant; all at a fraction of the fees that some other organisations charge. She has turned out to be an inspired and inspirational choice.”
Nick White, Principal – Parkwood Hall Co-operative Academy 

Having been unimpressed with the service offered and costs charged by the mainstream recruitment consultants, I decided to fill a fixed term, financial controller post through Mature Accountants.

I found MA refreshingly straightforward, they were happy to be judged on performance with no attempt to drive an exclusive arrangement. The costs were very competitive and the quality of the candidates introduced was good. I would have no hesitation in using Mature Accountants again.

‘Mature Accountants have found us two excellent candidates who have joined our business over the past 12 months or so. I am sure their knowledge of the TaxAssist network and the effort made to understand our specific requirements has lead to our successful recruitment. ‘

As a business partner of Martin’s, he was the first man we went to when we launched our ‘Business in a Box’ licensing model and wanted to recruit experienced accountants as licensees.

The people Martin put us in touch with have always been of the highest quality and we have taken 4 Mature Accountants on already. When we meet people we do not know we are naturally wary but coming from Martin’s network gives anybody a very firm seal of approval!
James Holloway- EFM 

I came across Mature Accountants by chance back in 2007 and have discovered a rich seam of talent, all of which has one thing in common and that’s loads of experience matched by real enthusiasm.

I have now recruited 8 mature accountants and I can recommend, without hesitation, MA and their very efficient and client-friendly process. Recruitment can be a pleasure!

Roger Nilsson - PRGX UK 

Nils runs the most efficient recruitment process at Mature Accountants that I have come across. No sooner had I responded to an advert on a jobs board I was contacted by Nils and then his client. Before I knew it I had a great new job. Wow. !

Nils was very helpful and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his company to my friends.

Sharron Cooper 

To be fair, I came to you because of the recommendation of an acquaintance. It is not an easy time to be between FDs or Chief Accountants. You helped me resolve the situation with dispatch. I am therefore quite happy to say that I found your service swift and efficient, and that you presented an admirable choice of candidates who, prima facie, met our requirements. Thank you very much!

“I was looking for an experienced accountant for my TaxAssist office and decided to try Mature Accountants. The whole process was very straightforward and I felt well supported throughout.
I was able to pre-select candidates I wished to interview and was impressed with the quality of candidates I met. I recommend that you consider Mature Accountants when looking for staff.”

David Lushington , TaxAssist Accountants 

I fell across Mature Accountants while reading an article in "Accountancy" and as I was looking for a senior accountant I thought I should try putting a job vacancy in, thinking that my needs were unlikely to be easily fulfilled - French speaking CPA, international experience, Swiss knowledge.

A week later I had 12 excellent CVs on my desk and a month later a recruit. Moreover MA were fun to talk to.

Thanks for a great service.

“My wife and I relocated from New Zealand to Bahrain in April, following a recruitment process which had started in late 2008. During the process, Martin was engaging, responsive and always easy to contact, even from the southern hemisphere. I felt that he was there to solve problems and make suggestions, constructive and not pushy. Visits to BDO were arranged and Martin helped with the follow up and finalising agreed responsibilities. Moving from as far away as New Zealand was much easier than we thought, and we found accommodation and transport quickly. Bahrainis are very friendly and settling in has been quick. I would recommend Mature Accountants. ”

"Having firstly registered with Mature Accountants as a candidate, I was pleasantly surprised by the refreshing attitude and outlook that Martin brought to the recruitment industry (having been FD of a large recruitment agency myself for the past 12 years!). When my new company had a staffing requirement, I thought I would "test" the other side of the fence.

Unlike most other agencies, there were no high pressure sales pitches, no arguing over ridiculous fee structures, no continuous harassment, just a factual conversation over what was required, a brief job description provided from myself. This was then put into M.A.'s format, sent to me for verification, and was on their site within 24 hours.

Within a further 24 hours I had a selection of relevant candidates to choose from, I made my own choices out of these, interviewed 2, both of whom were eminently suitable, and was in a position to make an offer within days.

Unlike other agencies, I was treated as a professional, allowed access to the candidates, given choices as to whether I spoke to them or M.A. spoke to them (Tanya arranged interviews and was very helpful throughout the process - thank you Tanya), had a brief call from Martin just to ensure everything was OK, and that was it...

Would I use them again? Yes
Would I recommend them? Yes"
Bernard Taylor - Inspired Gaming Group plc 

" Recruiting a qualified accountant for our company was a first for us and so the dilemma was where do we go to ensure we can get applicants of the kind we want as well as use a recruiter who would try and understand the needs of our company and the sensitivities of being a SME. Our main worry was that mainstream recruiting agencies gave us the impression of numbers and costs rather than come and see us and agree our needs!

Fortunately for us one of our network colleagues introduced us to Martin at Mature Accountants who was immediately able to come and see us, discuss our needs and put forward candidates all in the space of a week. What excellent service and to crown it all we were able to select and appoint someone within a fortnight!

I can highly recommend Martin and Mature Accountants to companies in a similar position to us and cannot speak highly enough of the service we received. You must give them a try!"
Robert Crosthwaite - Abels Moving Services 

Having arrived in an interim FD slot, I quickly realised I was going to need help and fast. I had no time to waste with traditional agencies and long briefings. I got a vague spec off to Martin and knew I could rely not only on a rapid response, but also on a quality of database that could match my requirements (extraordinarily well qualified, in other words).

CVs came fast and I was able to make an appointment within days. I would gladly have hired more than one if could have!

Many thanks again.
