Partners and Directors
Having worked hard to progress your career through to Partner or Director it is crucial that you choose the very best recruitment consultant to discuss your future career development with and to represent you when exploring future opportunities.
Our Managing Director, Mike Longman, who is both an F.C.A. and a C.T.A., personally deals with all Partners and Directors (and those with aspirations to make the step up imminently). Mike is uniquely placed to offer an expert and empathetic approach to senior candidates having formerly been an equity partner and Head of Tax in the Manchester office of a Group A accountancy firm.
Even when they are not actively searching for high level tax specialists, many firms are open to the idea of an exploratory conversation with appropriately skilled Partners or Directors if they believe they can add value to their business. However if you proceed down this route you will want the confidence that you are being represented by a well connected consultant who will act with integrity. Mike has a wide range of contacts in the tax profession in the North (and he was also formerly the Chairman of the Manchester branch of the Chartered Institute of Taxation, an office he held for three years) and, since he established the business in 2003, Mike has recruited numerous Partners / Directors for clients from Big 4 to local firms. Mike is happy to provide testimonials from partners he has previously placed who will confirm the degree of confidentiality and professionalism he displays.
In keeping with Longman Tax Recruitment’s core philosophy Mike prides himself on offering genuinely independent career guidance and building long term relationships with candidates and clients. On more than one occasion his advice to a Tax Partner frustrated in a current role has been to work through the internal issues rather than rush to seek a new firm.
When you are at the latter stages of the interview process we provide expert practical advice in areas such as giving guidance on preparing a business case or financial projections; acting as a sounding board for dry run panel presentations and helping negotiate packages. We also keep in close contact through the resignation process and can provide referrals to other professionals should advice be required in areas such as restrictive covenants.
Please call Mike for a confidential discussion.
