Ben Hall

Head of Tax Partner Search

Essex born and raised, I studied Law at Coventry before embarking on a career in recruitment. I have been recruiting since 2007 across various professional sectors focusing on the tax market since 2010.

Having in worked the industry for years, I have developed a network of contacts in a range of firms from the Big 4 through to smaller independent, boutique offerings. It’s a pleasure to see a number of former candidates as key clients and vice versa. 

I have worked in Recruitment for nearly a decade with the majority of this time focused on the tax industry. I have helped candidates and clients across the UK and internationally from entry-level roles through to the most senior of appointments. 

Outside of work, I enjoy my rugby and golf and can often be found watching one and playing the other! Aside from that I enjoy spending my time with family and friends. If I wasn't in recruitment, I’d be a professional golfer, that’d be the dream. It’s a great, if not often frustrating, sport!

What people say about Ben

I was really impressed by Ben, Will and yourself. Very responsive, always made time for me and clearly had a great relationship with BDO which really helped with the process. Ben coached me through each interview, which meant there were no surprises. 

Ben on the Partner Search team at Pro-Tax was great to work with, the processes were fine all along and everything went very smoothly, but the most helpful part of the process was that Ben made lots of time for conversations with me on my journey to making Partner at EY...

I'd just like to say a formal "thank you" to you, Ben and Will for the professional and friendly way in which you have handled the whole process.

60 seconds with: Heather Self, Partner at Blick Rothenberg

Posted by Ben Hall

If you could banish anything to room 101 what would it be and why? Manels! (all male panels) – I currently chair the Women in Tax group, and we are always happy to suggest great women speakers for events. What do you do to unwind at the weekend? Walk the dog in the Cheshire countryside where I live. What advice would you give yourself 10 years ago on how to make Tax Partner? Make sure you’ve worked out what you want from your career, and then have a plan to achieve it – but be flexible as things never turn out entirely as planned. What do Blick Rothenberg do well? I’ve found Blick Rothenberg are big enough to be able to provide the full range of advice but small enough to really care about clients and staff at a personal level. What is your biggest bugbear about CVs? They are highly polished and don’t allow people’s personalities to shine through. How would your team describe you? I hope they’d say I am inspiring but approachable. If not in tax, what would the dream be? Playing Lady Macbeth at the RSC. Biggest superstition/fear? That Brexit will be an almighty mess. What is your morning routine before work? Up early and catch the train, then walk from the station to the office, stopping for breakfast on the way. Skiing or beach? Neither – exploring somewhere new, preferably with a good walk followed by a glass of wine at the end of the day. Who is your hero? Judi Dench – 83 and still going strong as a wonderful Shakespearian actor. What is your life hack / top tip? Always do your best, but then be satisfied with that – it’s not possible to be perfect.
