Struggling With Hiring A New Accountant? You're Not The Only One

Author: Tailored Accounts

Research from National Australia Bank (NAB) has found that 1 in 5 Aussies changed their jobs last year and 25% are currently considering leaving their workplace. Additionally, the 5% inflation rate is adding more stress to families, forcing staff to look for better paying jobs.

And, with the end of financial year approaching, it is likely that you are one of many businesses struggling to hire the right staff for your Accounting Team. This is the time of the year Government Departments start opening up job vacancies and similarly, many accounting practices will also be gathering their resources for EOFY. 

With pressure coming from all sides, this can be a big headache for SMEs and small not-for-profit organisations, not only will you be forced to find good-quality staff in such a competitive environment but also be forced to account for the associated business disruption and cost!

Businesses may be forced to make do with what they have and do the accounting themselves, leaving themselves vulnerable to at best, delegating long hours to an accounting task that trained accountants could easily complete in a much shorter period, or at worse, making costly mistakes.

As an alternative, businesses could try finding a new accountant through a recruitment agency. But, as a consequence, business owners or managers would be forced to go through the whole process, from selecting the candidate, interviewing, on-boarding, training, retaining, termination & handover. This traditional way of recruiting your Accounting Team seems to not only be time-consuming but extremely costly! Neither option is ideal. Fortunately, there is a much smarter, efficient, and cost-effective way to hire your Accountant.
