Our flexible and part-time work agency has been at the forefront of one accountancy’s recruitment drive for the past few years. We’ve placed several professionals for them and not just accountants either. Read on to find out more…

A business approach to flexible working

For some businesses, working flexibly seems to be in their blood. They approach every role with the same flexible attitude. Alanbrookes, a multi-branch accountancy practice in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire is one such company. We’ve been helping them recruit flexible and part-time workers for several years – and we’re delighted to say the results have been excellent for everyone concerned.

Over the course of the last three years, Alanbrookes has appointed a 12-month interim Business Development Executive, two part-time accountants, a part-time social media executive and a part-time cloud-based bookkeeper.

Finding the right person for the job

Alanbrookes has been readily open to exploring a variety of different talent pools to find the right person for the job – and have candidly discussed and agreed the best flexibility for both parties. Good communication has played a vital role in ensuring successful recruitment and retention of their hires.

It isn’t just about women-returners either, although three of these roles were filled by mums with young children. This forward-looking business also appointed an early retiree and a former business owner.

Carolyn Downes, Partner, explains, “At Alanbrookes, we feel it’s important to find the right person for the job, and in particular, someone with the right character for our business. Whatever hours they can offer, our focus is to select employees who can build up the business around those skills and hours.”

Our professional flexible and part-time work agency

Tracey Adams, Director at Ten2Two Gloucestershire and Bristol says, “With a skills shortage of qualified accountants of a certain level and experience, Alanbrookes has found a winning formula for tapping into an often overlooked pool of candidates who don’t quite fit the 9 to 5, Monday to Friday role. We can give businesses access to self-motivated professionals with over ten years’ expertise.”

She adds, “At Ten2Two, we’re delighted to be able to lead the way for businesses seeking a more relevant way of recruiting in today’s modern world. Our flexible and part-time work agency is going from strength to strength as more and more employers realise that flexible working, really does work.”

If you’d like to make a flexible hire or would simply like to know more about how flexible working could help a business like yours, please get in touch today. Ten2Two has offices across the southeast and southwest of England.
