TALENT ACQUISITION

for Accounting & CPA Firms

Stabilize & Grow Your team.

Our Approach

 

The Problem Synthesized

 

The accounting market is facing a serious talent crisis! 40% of CPAs will be retiring by the year 2030, and 70% of current CPAs will be retired by 2033. Furthermore, talented non-licensed accountants are in extreme scarcity as committed career-minded graduates seek less stigmatized professions with better hours, more self-guided autonomy, and faster comp-acceleration.

Talent Acquisition in accounting requires a non-traditional approach, and 90% of recruiters today cannot think outside of the box. We're among the 10% who can, and there are several viable, creative options to consider in order to effectively address and resolve your talent acquisition challenges.

Option #1

Increase compensation.

 

Be willing to pay above-market rates to attract a local rockstar who can be your successor, or who can be a successor to a retiring leader at your firm

 

Option #2

Acquire great talent through M&A.

 

Regional sole-proprietors, many of them of non-advanced age, can often be mentored into positions of senior executive leadership at your firm

 

Option #3

Be willing to look outside of public accounting.

 

For Staff, Senior, and Supervisor level positions, if, and only if, you are willing to offer a reasonable work-life balance, hiring accountants who come from the private world can be an IN-OFFICE or hybrid solution to your regionally centric firm

What our Placements Say

"The White Tiger team was fantastic to work with and everything you would want in a recruitment partner. From the initial phone conversation to the time I accepted my offer, they were incredibly patient, honest and no-pressure. Throughout the entire process, they operated with my best interests in mind, and before I accepted the offer they took the time to have final follow-ups with the company to make sure the role aligned with my values and goals. I'm the happiest I've been at work in a very long time, and I have the White Tiger team to thank for bringing this opportunity my way."
