"Allow me to introduce myself. I am Paul Ryan, the MD of RD Financial Recruitment. Let me share a few things about my accountancy background and why the team at RD are ideally placed to help with your accountancy recruitment.
The truth is I have worked in accountancy for most of my professional career, which includes over 18 years growing RD Financial Recruitment into one of the most respected Accountancy Recruitment firms in the South East.
I started my corporate accountancy career with Johnson and Johnson as an Accounting Trainee, and five years later I had moved to a Market Analyst role before I joined Del Monte; yes I was one of the men from Del Monte who said yes!
During my time at Del Monte, I became responsible for the recruitment, training and development of the finance teams.
It was my time in this role that made me appreciate the huge gap in the accountancy recruitment market for a recruitment service delivered by a team that understands, in-depth, the many and varied finance roles growing organisations need.
So eighteen years ago, Geoff Dowling and I launched RD Financial Recruitment.
At the same time, we were also involved in helping local businesses with their accounting requirements and offering individual companies invaluable strategic advice.
During this time, I became the part-time FD of two expanding pharmaceutical companies helping them grow from scratch to organisations with a combined turnover of over £15M.
It is this knowledge and expertise that has helped me support our recruitment clients and the hundreds of candidates we have placed."
