Accountancy Practice


Our work within Accountancy Practice

The Accountancy Practice sector in Scotland is at the forefront of the accountancy profession worldwide. We’re front runners in terms of digital innovation, training quality, the breadth and depth of service provision and the calibre of talent.

Alongside the Big 4 and Top 10 national firms, the highly competitive independent accountancy landscape caters for the accounting and finance needs of multinationals and growth companies. In our experience, succession planning is a priority for many firms, while larger players are tackling the challenges of staff retention and market positioning.

Accountancy firms across Scotland draw a combined turnover of over £1bn and see over 230,000 employed. A career in the accountancy profession can offer a varied technically stimulating role and the opportunity to build lasting business partnerships.

Our dedicated team of specialist consultants are spread across our Edinburgh and Glasgow offices. Team iMultiply includes a seasoned accountancy recruitment business founder and a former EY Auditor. As a business we have over 20 years’ experience. This specialist team are focused on finding the right match for vacancies at all levels within practice.  We’ll also find the right strategic fit at Director and Partner level.

Our services to assist those working in accountancy practice include:

  • Securing a more varied role, such as moving from Audit to Accounts or Accounts to Corporate Finance
  • Career progression advice 
  • Taking your first step into industry
  • Achieving a more flexible working pattern
