We can let our recommendations
speak for themselves

  • "AJ Chambers has been extremely helpful and diligent in finding us the right candidates as they really understand who we are as a firm to get the right fit. They’ve been very quick getting the candidates in for interview, and if we get a vacancy in the future we only need to contact AJ Chambers, saving us time trawling around other agencies."


    - Anne Carter - Kreston Reeves

  • "From the outset AJ Chambers have invested the time to find out as much about our firm as possible and in particular the specific skill sets we required for the vacancies. They visited our offices at an early stage to gain a fuller understanding of our working environment and culture so that he could relay this to prospective candidates. This has enabled to them to assist us with successfully recruiting individuals for a number of roles over the past year ranging from members of staff at a Semi-Senior level through to Managers."


    - Audit Partner - Hazlems Fenton

  • "AJ Chambers has been great in helping us find new staff. They took the time to come and meet us and I think they really tried to understand the type of firm we are and what staff would be a good fit. They constantly check things with us and with the candidates to ensure the process goes as well as it can. As a result they has been involved in the majority of our appointments in the last 12 months."

    - Garry Till - Abbots

    - Steve Walker

  • Mercer & Hole can highly recommend AJ Chambers to both job seekers and hiring accountancy practices, as they have provided an exceptional service to us during the time we have worked together. We have worked closely with AJ Chambers over the past 18 months and they have filled several vacancies during that time in our audit, accounts, tax and corporate finance departments. They have always provided high quality candidates who are well suited to us as a business, and we are pleased to say that all of the staff members who we have employed through AJ Chambers remain with us to this day. In particular, Adam Munro from the London division, has became a trusted recruitment partner for Mercer & Hole and will hopefully continue to be so for the foreseeable future.

  • Scott and AJ Chambers were incredibly helpful in negotiating our recruitment of an ACCA part-qualified trainee. The structure of the deal was not straight-forward, and Scott’s imaginative but pragmatic approach really helped broker an arrangement which was satisfactory to all parties. His enthusiasm and dedication was very impressive.


    - Martyn Benstead, Partner, Stephenson Smart

  • Adam has been great in helping us find new staff. He took the time to come and meet us and I think he really tried to understand the type of firm we are and what staff would be a good fit. He constantly checks things with us and with the candidates to ensure the process goes as well as it can. As a result, he has been involved in the majority of our appointments in the last 12 months.

Why should I use an agency?

Utilising a good recruitment agency such as AJ Chambers will save you time, effort and money in your recruitment process.

Our in-depth market knowledge, well renowned reputation in the field, and existing relationships within the world of Public Practice recruitment ensure that we can help attract the very best talent into your business far more efficiently and effectively than going it alone and save considerable costs when compared to dealing with recruitment in-house.

Why should I use AJ Chambers specifically?

Where a lot of agencies tell you, they are specialists in their given sector, we have the experience to back that claim up. We work exclusively with Accountancy Practice firms in order to attract the best candidate into their businesses, and that sole dedication has allowed us a market-leading understanding of how our sector works.

AJ Chambers uses a unique business model that combines the ethos of a traditional specialist agency with a dedicated search and selection consultancy. Our team of Researchers are constantly reviewing all trends in the Public Practice field so that we can develop the most effective strategy for taking uniquely registered roles to market.

What sectors do you recruit for?

We specialise exclusively within Public Practice Accountancy Recruitment, across all levels of seniority from Part Qualified Semi Seniors right up to Director & Partner level, with a focus in the following sectors;

  • Audit
  • Accounts
  • Taxation
  • Outsourcing (including Bookkeeping, Payroll, & Management Accountancy)
  • Corporate Finance
What's the cost?

The search and selection process is all a part of our standard offering, and as such there is no fee attached. We don’t charge anything at all until after a candidate has commenced their employment with you, when we will then invoice you a one-off fee based on a percentage of the candidate’s remuneration package.

We do also offer a retained search service for certain roles where appropriate. In this case you would pay a portion of the introduction fee upfront in exchange for a different approach to your recruitment process, and the reminder of the fee upon the successful candidate starting with your firm.
