Need assistance recruiting top talent for your team?

Whether you are seeking a new Chief Financial Officer to lead your organization or an entry level accountant, Pinnacle Accounting and Finance (PAF) has the resources you need to ensure the next addition to your team is the right one. Our successful searches have been directed at nearly every possible accounting and finance position. From CFO, Controller, and Staff to Manager and Director of:

  • Corporate Tax
  • Cost Accounting
  • Financial Planning & Analysis
  • Financial Reporting
  • General Accounting Operations
  • Internal Audit
  • Payroll Operations
  • SEC Reporting & Research
  • Treasury Operations

What’s the difference between a contingent search and a retained search?

What is it?
We earn an agreed upon placement fee only if you hire a candidate that we have represented to your organization. This type of search provides you access to the top talent in the market that you most often are not going to see through your own job posting. You gain access to our current network of talented professionals that we have already screened, qualified, and are ready to advance for the right opportunity.

When is this search recommended?
This type of search is recommended for your Staff to Manager level positions where you need access to top talented professionals to ensure that your hiring managers interview the right candidate(s) the first time versus a lengthy investment of time in interviewing a multitude of unqualified candidates.

What is it?
We work with you and your team in an exclusive strategic partnership. The payment terms are traditionally made in three equal parts: One as a retainer to initiate the search, one thirty days later, and one upon the placement of the candidate.

This type of search provides the higher-end level of service for dedicated time to work closely with you and your team to define an agreed methodology to find the best person for the role. This often includes specific reporting analytics that are defined to keep you abreast during each step of the search process.

When is this search recommended?
This type of search is recommended for your senior level roles at the Controller, CFO, and other key leadership roles. If you are looking to conduct a national search, we have approximately 40 affiliate offices across the U.S. and Canada where we have working for you as well in the background through our team.

Are you currently evaluating talent on a national scale for your Pittsburgh office?

If you are seeking talent for locations across the country or are willing to relocate top talent to Pittsburgh, our affiliation with the American Association of Finance and Accounting (AAFA) provides access to a network of 100,000 professionals with offices in most major cities.
