A SHORT WHILE AGO…
OVER A CURRY AND A BEER , WE DECIDED WE NEEDED A PURPOSE.
What do we stand for? What makes us proud to work for Accountancy Action? What is our story?
We came up with the following that we kinda like. We hope you do too.
(Note – if you don’t you probably won’t be right for us)
“TO PROVIDE A SUCCESS LEAD ENVIRONMENT FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF RECRUITERS TO CONTINUE TO INNOVATE AND STRIVE TO IMPROVE THE PERCEPTION OF THE RECRUITMENT INDUSTRY WHILST HAVING FUN AND TRAVELLING THE WORLD”
WHAT’S YOUR STORY?
WE DON’T MEAN THE ONE YOU’VE BEEN USING AT INTERVIEWS TO ANSWER THAT “TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF” QUESTION.
You know, the one that pretends all your job choices and changes have played out in a neat, linear way.
We mean the proper one. If your story so far has been a journey, then it’s likely not been from A to B. But from A to D via G, C, V – to get to LMNOP.
You see, more than anything else, we know careers. That’s why yours is in great hands here. We understand that you could be the hardest working person in the room, but the world of work is complicated. Priorities shift. Circumstances change. Ambitions outgrow environments.
This helps us to nurture an environment where you feel supported in your growth. So, instead of having to go through big changes all over again someplace new, you can achieve your ambitions right here.
WHAT STORY DOESN’T LOVE A HAPPY ENDING?
YOU PROBABLY WANT TO WORK HERE, IF:
- YOU LIKE CLARITY AND TRANSPARENCY – WE DON’T BELIEVE IN KEEPING SECRETS.
- YOU’RE INTO TRAINING, AND WILL PUSH FOR YOUR OWN GROWTH AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT.
- YOU WORK PROACTIVELY, NOT REACTIVELY. YOU’LL SEE THERE ARE NO LIVE INTERNAL JOBS HERE. THAT’S BECAUSE IF WE THINK YOU CAN ADD VALUE, WE’LL HIRE YOU ON THE SPOT. WHY WAIT?
- YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A JOB YOU ENJOY, WORKING WITH AND FOR PEOPLE YOU LIKE. SOUNDS BASIC, DOESN’T IT? SO, WHY IS IT SO HARD?
- YOU’VE DONE THE “BIG CORPORATE RECRUITER” THING BEFORE… BUT NOW YOU WANT TO DEVELOP YOUR CAREER IN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT ENCOURAGES CREATIVITY. YOU’RE INTERESTED IN RECRUITMENT MARKETING AND CREATIVE WRITING.

The journey of an Accountancy Action trainee
AND YOU SHOULD PROBABLY STAY WELL AWAY, IF:
- YOU NEED HAND HOLDING OR CONSTANT ENCOURAGEMENT TO DO YOUR JOB.
- YOU’RE NOT ABLE TO CREATIVELY SOLVE PROBLEMS.
- YOU LACK RESILIENCE AND YOU’RE VERY EASILY DISCOURAGED.
- YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEED THE SAFETY OF A BIG BRAND NAME TO CONFIDENTLY SELL WHAT YOU DO.
WHAT MAKES US SO SPECIAL:
Work from home is a given here. During these times, and during normal times, however they happen to look. Never miss a sports day, or parents evening, or spend your holidays on medical appointments, ever again.
Your work life and your life life will always have a clear and healthy separation with us. You’re driven to deliver, so you’ll be passionate about achieving results, while appreciating the flexibility to do that on a schedule that suits you.
Feel part of something special. Our President’s Club, (ignore the unfortunate namesake, thanks America!) has been inundated with high achievers from across the diversity spectrum, who earn a place through great results and length in service.
You want to know how to get from one place in your career to the next, so we’ve designed our “Action career paths” around the humble hotel lift. Get in at the ground, and work your way up, on your terms, at your pace. A true meritocracy, like recruitment should be.
We’re interested in metrics that matter. Your promotion is based on performance, and not time spent in the business.
