Chris Davey

Consultant - Tax Partner Search

I am a specialist Tax head-hunter, recruiting Tax Partners and Tax Directors within the Accounting profession. I work with firms throughout the UK, focussing on vacancies in the Big 4, Top 10 and boutique practices.

Having been focussed on the investment industry all my time prior to recruitment, my network lies between HNWI in the UK and South Africa.

Having been involved in competitive investment industries prior to recruitment, I’ve learned to understand exactly what my client is looking for rather than impose my recommendations upon them. Recruitment is about trust and advising which vacancies are best fit for both candidate and client – that’s how you strengthen relationships. I studied tax at university, but since the majority of my network are HNWI, many of them are established businessmen/women and that ability to build strong rapport stands me in good stead.

In my spare time, you’ll find me on a hockey pitch, golf-course or (weather permitting) at a roof-top pub.

I’m always up for finding new places and enjoying traveling as much as a possible.

I have a number of things that I want to do on my bucket list but on the top of the list is Scuba-diving in Cancun, seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland and skydiving the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.
