We are trying to recruit a part time client manager for our accountancy practice (newly created position) based in North Shropshire. The position is for 22.5 hours per week with possibility of increasing to 30 hours per week next year.
Having done some social media advertising and having already contacted some recruitment agencies, candidates seem to be few and far between (as we expected!). We have a super practice however; with all our clients already on cloud accounting, enhanced flexible working, stunning rural office location (but close to some main North Shropshire towns), no timesheets and the kind of technology which means our team can work from any location and don't need to be confined to the office.
I understand from recruiters that flexible working is high on the 'wish list' for many candidates and I'm sure our flexibility far outweighs any offered by local practices in our area....but it's difficult to promote this fact being a fairly small (6 member) team until we can get candidates in for actual interviews.
Does anybody have recommendations for quality recruiters or ideas for promoting the jobs ourselves?
P.s we also advertisied on Indeed which did not yield any suitable candidates with most applying not having the experience nor meeting the criteria we set.
