Testimonials: what are they saying about us?
Martin helped us (joint bid) to win the position through perseverance and helping to clarify both the clients requirements and the proposed solution. Without his help, this would not have succeeded.

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 Martin refreshingly straightforward, he was 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.

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

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!

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, Martin and his very efficient and client-friendly process. Recruitment can be a pleasure!

Martin 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 Martin and then his client. Before I knew it I had a great new job. Wow. ! Martin was very helpful and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him and his company to my friends.

To be fair, I never looked at your site but came to you because of previous experience, in turn based on 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!

Best,

“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.”

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 Martin was 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"

" 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!"

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.

Mature accountants were immediately responsive to the needs of my business and within a week I had 15 applicants, 10 of whom were a perfect fit. I chose one and he got stuck in within 24 hours of having understood the brief. The quality of the work done was first class. Mature accountants exceeded my expectations by a comfortable margin. If only other B2B services were as efficient. Thank you very much.

Bridgeman Art Library recruited their Financial Controller vacancy through Mature Accountants. A difficult role at a time in the company when extensive restructuring and developing is being configured for their whole IT systems and programs. They needed to find someone who would be able to take up the challenge that this poses by contributing in the development of the new systems, whilst keeping in consideration the specialist field and requirements that this digital international library has to contend with.

Martin at Mature Accountants was from the outset very attentive to all our requirements as well as himself actively helping to further define our requirements not only verbally and in his excellent selection of a small number of candidates which he put forward very quickly, but also by writing up for us an excellent detailed job description.

Martin was also very flexible with our changing requirements from a full time to a part-time role the result was that in the space of three weeks all the interviews which had been arranged and co-ordinated with Martin were completed and a candidate was in place. Martin took the stress out of the search process. Thank you so much for a most efficient and considered service.
Cherine Mekkaoui PA to Deputy Managing Director The Bridgeman Art Library Ltd 

As a financial management outsourcing business, we often need staff at short notice to satisfy client situations both on a temporary and full time basis. We are delighted to work with Matureaccountants to help fulfill these opportunities as we have found them to be very responsive to our requests, happy to put together a quality advert from an outline brief, and put forward a range of candidates who can possibly meet our requirements.
In addition when looking to grow our own business, Martin has been able to identify senior candidates in a geographic area to match our needs and has helped to contribute ideas as to how we might present our proposition to these candidates. We look forward to continuing to work with matureaccountants on such an open and flexible basis.

Mature Accountants could not have been more helpful. They listened carefully to want we needed, responded quickly and sent us only high-quality candidates who fitted the bill. I will definitely use them again.

At last! I have finally found a source of experienced candidates and an agency that provides just the right level of service - quick to respond, proactive but not pushy. A sensible fee rate helps also!
Mature Accountants have found me two staff in the last three months and they will now be my first and only port of call when I have another vacancy.
