About Our Client

Michael Page Finance has been helping shape successful careers and supporting companies build better businesses since 1976. We specialise in the permanent, temporary, and interim recruitment of qualified accountants right across the UK.

We work with a range of clients from PLCs, to private equity backed SMEs, and everything in between.

Many of us have worked here for over 5-15 years, and we can talk you through how our careers have accelerated during that time with the business.

However, we also have successful stories of how we have welcomed graduates, sales professionals, and recruiters with a varying level of experience to the team & on-boarded them with ease.

We have great offices in Liverpool & Manchester, but we are incredibly flexible. You are welcome to spend every day with us if you wish in either office, or you can make use of working remotely / within flexible working hours if that suits you. Whatever your situation, as long as you're motivated, a great communicator, and driven to do the best for your clients / candidates, we can make it work for you.
