Alternative Financial Recruitment Launches…

Alternative Recruitment, a Devon based general recruitment agency, is launching a new specialist financial recruitment division on 31 August.

The new division – Alternative Financial Recruitment – will be led by Trevor and Alex Armstrong, who have both spent several years working in the accountancy and finance sector before moving into recruitment.

Although based in Okehampton, Alternative Financial Recruitment will serve candidates and clients across the UK.

The expansion aims to build on the current success of Alternative Recruitment and utilise the first-hand knowledge and skills both Trevor and Alex have in the accountancy and finance sector.

Trevor, who has had previous roles in industry as a finance director, founded Alternative Recruitment in 2008.

He said: “We are incredibly excited to be launching this new venture to tie in with our 10 year anniversary celebrations.

“There are very few recruiters out there who have worked in the sector they are recruiting for. We feel as though our ‘real life’ experience and networks can help both candidates and clients immensely.

“We’re also very pleased to welcome Alex and his skills to the firm.”

Alex, a qualified chartered accountant, hopes that his own experience in audit and corporate finance, working with a vast array of global companies, charities and academies will mean that he can fully understand what candidates are looking for in a new role.

“Having first-hand knowledge and insight into the industry is something that I feel will really set us apart from other recruiters,” Alex said.

“I’ll be making use of my extensive network to help clients find the right candidate and I look forward to using my own experience to offer helpful advice and support to candidates.”
