Accountancy and Finance Recruitment – Nigel Wright Group

Leading specialist accounting and finance recruitment agency

Nigel Wright Group was founded in the 1980s in Newcastle upon Tyne by a former accountant who saw a gap in the recruitment industry for a regional finance and accountancy recruitment specialist. Since then, our business has expanded across the North EastYorkshire and the North West and is widely regarded as one of the leading multidiscipline recruiters operating in the North of England.

While we have broadened our proposition to include expertise in other professions, accountancy and finance recruitment services remain the backbone of our business. We recruit at all levels of the discipline including CFOs and other senior finance roles, through to newly qualified and part-qualified accountants as well as invoice financing, cash flow, credit control and other specialist jobs.

With a talent network that extends across the North, our accounting and finance recruitment consultants consistently identify and attract the best candidates for a broad range of business & financial services, consumer, digital & tech, industrial and public & third sectors organisations.

“Rather than going out and finding any accountant, the consultant listened and took note of the kind of candidate that would fit into my team. I only had to do two interviews in the end because of the in-depth groundwork that was undertaken during the search.”
