Recruitment Awards 2015: Renaix – Winner Best For Auditing & Best For International Recruitment

“We are delighted to win these awards recognising, as they do, the efforts and professionalism of our team as we continue to grow and expand the business.”


Renaix is a leading international recruitment company for audit and finance professionals. Since its inception in 1997, the company has established a strong presence in many key markets for financial recruitment, introducing candidates to companies throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East (MEA).

Renaix targets highly rated Finance Managers, Auditors, Analysts and Controllers from blue-chip multinationals and the “Big 4” public practice firms. In addition to these roles, they also recruit in legal, tax, treasury, procurement and general management.

We spoke to Paul Jarrett, Director, and Co-Founder of Renaix, to find out more about their approach to the recruitment process and what brought their company to the forefront of the industry.

“Across our company, we have always looked to build on our global brand awareness. We value our reputation with clients and candidates which is fundamentally based on long term relationships. For many of our clients, we are their preferred supplier of choice because essentially we are their business partner.

In addition to technical ability, we place a great deal of importance on a candidate’s interpersonal skills cultural awareness and international mobility.

Whilst the nature of our work requires us to handle a range of sensitive issues, we strive to work in partnership with our clients and candidates as transparently as possible.

Our evaluation of a candidate’s suitability for a particular role does not stop upon forwarding their CV; we operate on a consultative basis, so at each stage of the process we conduct in-depth discussions with the client and candidate so that any feedback and potential issues are flagged up early and resolved. During the offer stage, we maintain regular contact, assist with negotiations and ensure the joining process is completes effectively and smoothly. Crucially we deliver; in the majority of cases our engaged results in a successful introduction, which is why most of our assignments come from repeat business.

We believe recruitment is about service, reaching out and sourcing highly regarded talent. Our approach differs from our competitors in that we focus on utilising our network and maintaining close contact with other professionals in the audit and finance community. This referral network enables and recommends sources rather than just relying on social networks and job boards.

For us, it’s much more about working with people and building on these relationships. Our work often requires fluency in languages other than English and we have built a multicultural team which is a significant source of competitive advantage. This diversity is critical for enhancing our global talent pool.

Social media and particularly LinkedIn have opened the door for in-house recruitment for generic roles and in candidate-led markets where there is an abundance of suitably qualified people. However, our audit and finance roles are specialist, requiring deep knowledge and understanding of the industry. The right candidates are often scarce, necessitating a large network of contacts to source the right profile.

We are delighted to win these awards recognising, as they do, the efforts and professionalism of our team as we continue to grow and expand the business.”
