Pratap Partnership Interim Finance Expansion

After a year of steep growth in demand for interim finance professionals, we are delighted to announce that Dale Spink is moving to work with Joe Ingham in our Interim Finance specialism.

Dale is one of our most experienced directors in our Accountancy & Finance team and he is now specialising on the recruiting management and senior management level accountants across Yorkshire

Why are we making this change now?
  • Conditions for recruiting permanent candidates have been challenging over the past two years. The best solution for many employers is to tap into the interim resource that is available – a candidate pool that has been deep and strong in Yorkshire for many years. We predict that this market will grow at an increased rate next year.
  • More of our candidates are looking for help, advice and support in their interim careers
  • Employers and recruiters can not rely on job boards and adverts to fill interim roles; the best solutions will always be built on the existing network. Having access directly to our directors is our best way of achieving this. It is testament to our strong heritage in the interim market that a number of our candidates aren’t on job boards or usual channels such as LinkedIn, but have worked closely with us for a number of years, being successfully placed in multiple and continuous assignments.

Why Dale Spink?
  • Dale has proven himself as an outstanding recruiter over the past 18 years. He has worked with our partners for the past 10 years and we know the standards he sets and the values that he keeps are second to none.
  • Two of Dale’s dominant values are his “honest transparency” and his “long term approach to relationships” – These are two characteristics of effective interim recruitment.
  • Demand for interim talent is currently very high; Dale is a recruitment expert in this field who can partner with you and provide the best advice on candidate suitability, market knowledge and costs

How can we help?
  • If you are planning to look at interim roles in 2023 and beyond, please make contact with Dale or Joe. We will always be happy to make time to speak, advise and help in any way possible.
  • If you are struggling to recruit on a permanent basis or may be looking at recruiting interim resource to your finance department in 2023, please contact us. It is never too early to discuss the market, the budget and how to get ahead of the rest of the competition

A few final words
A Yorkshire based Finance Director
"Having worked with Dale as a client and candidate for 10 years in the South Yorkshire accountancy recruitment market, I have always valued his honest approach and market knowledge.  I know his skillset will be valuable at the challenging and fast paced qualified interim market and I wish him all the best in the new role"
Dale Spink
“I am looking forward to establishing long term relationships with interim specialists as well as being able to pro-actively help anybody who has found themselves out of work involuntarily. Having recruited mostly permanent positions in Yorkshire recently, I have noticed a stark increase in the demand for contract workers within the accountancy profession and I believe it will benefit both our clients and candidates to have a dedicated consultant focusing on the interim market.”
Joe Ingham
"After two years of increased demand for interim professionals, this is a significant first hire for our growing interim business, and the fact it is an internal move delights me – we all have tremendous trust and respect for Dale. Looking internally to help us facilitate our growth plans was our natural first move, and Dale was an obvious choice to ask to join the interim business. Dale has a number of strong client relationships across the region and his honest approach to recruitment is why he is such a natural fit to Pratap Partnership and the business ethos"
