Vitae Financial Recruitment

Vitae Financial Recruitment: specialists in Temporary, Permanent and Contract recruitment within the finance and accounting markets.

Dedicated to exceptional service delivery within Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Middlesex and Essex, as well as our London based portfolio.

Our mantra is and always will be, delivering the highest calibre of candidates to our selected client portfolio. Whether we are working with a commercial giant or small entrepreneurial start-up, our focus remains the same; Recruitment that is driven by candidate quality - not quantity, strategy - not sales, and talent - not black and white CVs.

Our clients and candidates alike return to us, not just because we are accounting recruitment specialists, but because we only work with individuals who we believe have the potential to make a real difference.

Anyone who has used a recruitment agency before will be familiar with some of the associated stereotypes. Many agencies make promises based on the size of their database, client portfolio and number of staff. We believe they are missing the point and invariably under deliver...

...we exist to be different.

"Vitae both understands the right questions to ask their clients as well as how to expertly identify talent. The quality of candidates, even at short notice and for niche roles, are absolutely spot on in terms of skill-set and cultural fit and I would have no hesitation in using Vitae again."

Epson Europe - Resourcing Manager

"I have worked with Vitae for the past 2.5 years. The support that Vitae has offered when working on a particular project has been excellent, delivering a small choice (my request!) of 'good' candidates, no time wasters. Vitae has been able to 'get under the skin' of our brand, and deliver each time we work with them. Also, I appreciate that they do not constantly pester me, as they know and understand how I work, which suits me completely!"

Pizza Hut (UK), Hertfordshire - Head Office Recruitment Manager

"I have worked with Vitae since around 2008 and have found their approach to be both refreshing and consultative. Many agencies I have worked with try to 'sell in' candidates who are not right either technically or culturally which results in a waste of time for all parties. Vitae's approach and in depth understanding of my team, and the calibre of individual that will fit within it means that they deliver the right people consistently. If they haven't got someone they feel is right, they won't send them. In my experience this is what stands them apart from the rest."

TUI Travel Plc, Bedfordshire - Divisional Finance Director

"We have used Vitae for many years and they have sourced many first class candidates for us. They have always been very responsive and provide us with good insight in to the current market conditions; this has enabled us to secure the right candidate on many occasions. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to recruit quality finance personnel."

Red Prairie (now part of JDA) Buckinghamshire - International Finance Director

"We have worked with Vitae now for over three years. In this time, they have understood our requirements well and have always brought a through strong calibre of candidates for a variety of roles. I believe that Vitae offer a very good quality of service that is tailored to their candidates and clients."

JD Wetherspoon plc, Hertfordshire - Finance Director

"I was introduced to Vitae by a colleague who stated they would probably submit fewer cv's, but the quality of their candidates would be better. My colleague was right and I haven't looked back since. Suitable candidates combined with Vitae's discreet and professional approach is making recruitment for a busy department quick and easy."

RES (Renewable Energy Systems), Hertfordshire - Finance Manager

"Vitae Financial Recruitment, have been one of the best recruitment consultancies I have worked with in my 15+ years in Human Resources. The team have supplied me with excellent candidates for selection to work within our Finance Department. Their work rate and work ethic are second to none - always going that extra mile. They are honest, efficient and reliable and I would not hesitate in recommending Vitae as a recruiter for the Financial sector."

ACI Worldwide (EMEA) Ltd, Hertfordshire - Human Resources

"Over the many years that we have been working with Vitae, we have found their approach very refreshing. The quality of the candidates we have interviewed has been excellent and the cultural fit is spot on. This has resulted in all of our recruitment too the finance team being Vitae recruits, with the most pleasing thing of all being that they are all performing well."

Stonegate Pub Company, Bedfordshire - CFO

"We have been working with Vitae for a number of years. During this time, Vitae have established themselves as our agency of choice from those on our PSL. Vitae's consultants are both experienced and knowledgeable and work in partnership with both our HR team and Line Managers; the relationship is built on honesty and trust. They consistently deliver an excellent service. Vitae consultants ensure they fully understand the roles and our Company culture and only present quality candidates."

TK Maxx, Hertfordshire - Human Resources

"We have been using Vitae now for some time to support us with our financial recruitment needs. This relationship was established some time ago and in particular their his style and approach works extremely well for us. They are pro-active and have even helped us fill vacancies outside their known area of expertise! Most importantly there is never a sales pitch involved with Vitae, they are always very direct and clearly do a good job in pre-screening all of their candidates. I have personally also recommended Vitae to other HR Colleagues outside my organisation and I know that they have always delivered a high level of service to them too."

Computacenter, Hertfordshire - Human Resources Manager

"We have used Vitae for several years because they have a good knowledge of the candidates in the FMCG sector in the North Herts market. They understand the business fit and are also very responsive?

Ocado, Hertfordshire - Director of Finance

"I used Vitae to help fill a gap in a small but talented finance team where aptitude and motivation are important. Following a detailed discussion of what we were looking for we were sent 4-5 CVs from their existing database, interviewed 3 and had the enviable luxury of being able to chose from 2. The appointed candidate has been contributing well for two years now and I am very pleased with the selection."

Fujifilm UK, Bedfordshire - Finance Director

"Vitae are great recruiters. They have performed consistently in the times I have needed help, and has succeeded many times in bringing people into this organisation where other recruiters have failed. The consultants' personable characters means I always have time for them, and we have built a strong partnership in a relatively short period of time because of this. I would have no hesitation in recommending Vitae as a provider of a fantastic service."

United Biscuits, Middlesex - Lead Recruiter

"We have been working with Vitae for over 5 years now and there is a long list of reasons as to why we continue to choose to work with them for our Finance recruitment needs. To summarise, Vitae always go above and beyond to understand our business needs and our culture, and this is why they are always successful in finding the right candidate, who cannot only do the job but who will also fit into the team and the business. Not only do they provide quality candidates but the quality of their service is second to none. They are professional and friendly, and you can be sure that they won't bombard you with spec CV's and incessant phone calls."
