 Principal Recruitment Consultant: Accounting & Finance


About Taylor Ryan

Taylor Ryan is hiring a Principal Recruitment Consultant to take a lead role in the growth of our Accounting and Finance division. We are a boutique consulting firm providing retained executive search; contingency recruitment; and human resource consulting services. Our focus is on Real Estate, Accounting & Finance, and Financial Services sectors. From our head office in Vancouver we successfully recruit across Western Canada, Seattle, WA and across North America as required.


Taylor Ryan is a little different from most recruitment firms as our aim is to be a one stop shop and supply the entire vertical for our clients. Not many firms have our breadth of capability to deliver an equal number of executive level retained searches combined with junior/mid-level contingency positions.  We focus on quality and are well known for our high standards of delivery. Our consultants are amongst the best performers in Vancouver. Why? Because they focus on results instead of KPI’s, on working with clients exclusively so over 90% of registered jobs are filled, and they take a long-term view to developing our business.  Our team loves working from our new Yaletown offices, or flexibly from home, and our best performers really love our unlimited vacation policy.


We also believe in being industry specialists. We go the extra mile as active participants in our industry segments. Within real estate we are the only recruitment firm to exclusively partner and sponsor industry bodies including NAIOP, UDI, ULI and BOMA.  Taylor Ryan has led the creation of ULI BC’s first “Product Council’ and helped establish NAIOP’s Mentorship program in BC.


We also support charities and the arts. In 2017, Taylor Ryan launched the first annual Seymour Mountain charity cycling event in support of Covenant House, as well as partnerships with BC Cancer Foundation and Bard on the Beach.


The role:

As a Principal at Taylor Ryan you will be responsible for generating your own business plan and clients through active business development and through the various industry events, and sponsorships that we invest in. You will think commercially, taking a view of the market and strategically growing your client portfolio. You must be an advisor to your clients and candidates. You will diligently execute searches by proactively identifying and attracting candidates, screening and managing them throughout the recruitment process.   You may focus on junior or mid-level positions, or be ready to hire senior management roles such as CFO and VP finance, on a retained basis. You might have the aptitude for leadership and really help us grow our team.


Your Experience:

You will bring several years of recruitment experience from an agency/consulting firm with a focus on accounting and finance. Alternatively, you may come from a finance or accounting background, with a strong aptitude for sales and business development. A bachelor degree or diploma is a plus. Some current or previous relationships within the Vancouver market are essential. You will display strong commercial acumen as well as a sense of integrity and ambition. Likely, you are ready to work in a mature, fun environment that invests in you, rewards you and doesn’t micro-manage you.



Benefit & Reward

Taylor Ryan offers a truly unique culture. We reward consultants with a generous commission program, investment in directly relevant marketing activities, and market leading vacation and flexibility. We also provide many company incentives and trips throughout the year. Based in class A office facilities in Yaletown, we have invested in a space where our team feels at home. As a Principal Consultant, you will have autonomy and flexibility in delivering your business plan, whilst benefiting from the direction and support of an experienced Partner. Taylor Ryan respects and trusts each team member to deliver on their commitment. There are no KPI’s beyond delivering strong financial results and working in line with the Taylor Ryan values. The opportunity for both growth into a leadership role, and potentially longer-term partnership exists for the right candidate.
