KEVIN'S TESTIMONIALS

Testimonial by Mid Tier Practice

Prior to being approached by Pro-Tax, I had no intention of leaving my employer. However, they were able to present me with details of a number of positions across a range of different firms and provide a comprehensive description of the sort of work I’d encounter in each company. Pro-Tax were quickly able to arrange interviews with some key players in the market. Kevin invited me in for some interview training which proved to be invaluable. He was able to prepare me for the sort of questions that I would face and provided me with real confidence that I could present myself in a favourable light. – Joe Burns, Tax Investigations Manager at a Mid Tier Practice

Testimonial by Grant Thornton

Kev and the rest of the team at Pro-Tax were incredibly helpful in finding me the ideal next step in my career. They took the time to sit down and understand exactly what I wanted from my next role which allowed them to put me in front of the exact sort of people and teams that I was looking for. The team were professional and friendly throughout and ensured that I was fully prepared for the interviews that they had arranged for me. Their support throughout the process went well above what I would ever have expected from a recruitment agency and I could not be happier with the role that they placed me in. I would highly recommend Pro-Tax for anyone looking for their next career move in tax. – Jono Clare, Tax Manager at Grant Thornton

Testimonial by PwC

I had a great experience using Pro-Tax for the first time. I was looking for an exciting new role after spending over 7 years at my previous employment and Pro-Tax were very patient, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. I would definitely use their services again and recommend them to others. – Wendy Kitcher, US Tax Manager at PwC

Testimonial by Smith and Williamson

From a candidate perspective, Pro-tax have always taken into consideration what is best for me and not just what is best for their clients. The wider career guidance they have provided has been invaluable and as a result, I am now happier in work and better paid – Peter Sands, Tax Manager at Smith and Williamson

Testimonial by Bright Grahame Murray

I recently engaged with Pro-Tax to aid me with the search for a new job. After initial contact, I quickly became engaged with three members of the team to aid me in my search: Kevin Racher, Emma Rose and Stuart Feeley. Following on from reviewing my CV, I met with the team to discuss this in more detail, which also gave them a chance to experience what I am like in person. All three reviewed positions they had available and discussed them with me in detail. The team at Pro-Tax not only understand the applicant’s strengths, weaknesses and needs but understand the employer’s needs. They will not inundate employers with CVs unnecessarily. Prior to attending the interview, further discussions took place regarding the role, the company, the people I would be meeting, format of the interview and expectations. They really get to know the employers and this is reflected even more in this process. 360 feedback is given after interview for both the prospective employee and the employer. This benefits both parties. Prior to the second interview, the same process was undertaken and time was also used to reflect on the first interview again and how to build on this for the second round interview. After a successful second interview, which has led to a job offer, which I have accepted, Pro-tax have remained active in ensuring both parties have achieved their aim and that things remain on track. This I see as a valuable and vital part of the service when you have a long notice period. Once a candidate is placed, Pro-tax will not just walk away from the employer in relation to that role. They will ensure that both parties remain happy with their choices.I would highly recommend Kevin, Emma, Stuart and the rest of the team at Pro-Tax as the go-to choice of specialist recruitment agency. – Gavin Barker, VAT Director at Bright Grahame Murray

Testimonial by BDO

Having not interviewed for over 10 years, I was lost as to where my next place of employment could be. Kevin listened to my views in our very first meeting to help me understand where my niche skillset could be applied and gave me hope in exploring various employment options in my next career move. Kevin was always available prior and post interview to help me structure my interview plan and always encouraging and positive whenever I thought things had not gone well. Always prompt in contacting the post holder he would provide me with immediate feedback where he could to put my mind at ease before hearing anything official. Even after being successful in getting a new job, Kevin helped to negotiate my new contract, helped with procedures enrolling into my new company and offered advice with my notice at my current place of employment. His expertise and quality guidance were invaluable throughout my whole job search and credit to him for helping me land my new job. – KL, Tax Investigations Manager at BDO

Testimonial by Big 4

Kevin assisted me in my recent job search as a senior manager within Tax Disputes and Investigations. This is a market that Kevin clearly knows exceptionally well, having built up great working relationships with the main players at all the relevant firms. Within a very short timeframe Kevin had lined up a number of interviews for me and it was no time at all before the offers started to come in. I would highly recommend Kevin for any searches related to Tax Investigations. – Isobel Clift, Senior Tax Investigations Manager, Big 4

Testimonial by Mid-Tier Practice

I was very impressed by Kevin’s proactive attitude and am personally grateful for his help and support. I have found him to be professional, approachable and very practical in his approach. Thanks again for your help. – HN, Tax Manager at a Mid-Tier Practice

Testimonial by RSM

Thanks Kevin! We are very happy with Pro-Tax and the service they provide. Candidates are often of the right calibre and your team are very easy to deal with. If I have to go to an agent then you would be the first one that I would call. – Martin Rossiter, Tax Partner at RSM

Testimonial by EY

Due to personal circumstances, I was having to look at moving jobs as well as relocating from London to Yorkshire. I was nervous about the move and had lots of doubts along the way, but I want to give full credit to ProTax, particularly Kevin for his insightful guidance and sensitivity in dealing with my situation. He took much of the stress out of the move and really helped me in coming to a decision – which has (so far!) been an excellent one. Throughout the process I felt that Kevin listened to my requirements and aspirations, and presented me with a range of opportunities to get a feel for the sort of move I may want to explore. His discretion and confidentiality throughout were impeccable, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Kevin to anyone considering their next career move. – James Heathcote, Senior Manager at EY
