Finding the right bookkeeping EMPLOYEE for your business
Learn how we assess Bookkeepers for Experience and expertise
The Find Our Bookkeeper ™ program was developed in part to help showcase the value of Canadian bookkeepers, and to assist businesses in connecting with someone who would be a mutual fit for their organization and skill needs. We work with accounting and bookkeeping firms, as well as business owners, to find bookkeepers who match their needs in terms of skill level and experience. This allows you to focus on doing what you do best: running your practice or your business.
How we work with you
First and foremost, we are not an employment agency or a placement agency. Primarily, we become the 2nd part of your recruitment and interview process – we are the team you need to help you take those candidates you are interested in and determine if they can do the actual work you need, through a variety of assessments, fundamentals and practical work.
As part of the process we can also assist you in creating the best job description for you to use with your internal recruitment, based on our 25 years of experience and current industry standards and trends and what we’ve discovered works to grab the attention of those top notch candidates. At the end of the process, if your gut says that this is the right person for your team, we’ll tell you if they can do the work!
How the process works
First you’ll need to send us a message, and we will book a time to call you for a no-obligation chat about the process. From there, we will explain the next steps, understand your goals, and discuss what you need from your next employee. We’ll talk more about the assessments we do and the information we will provide you on each of your candidates.
How our clients have benefited from working with us!

Frequently Asked Questions
What will it cost?
Our pricing is dependent on the requirements of the individual business or firm. If you’d like a quote, please get in contact with us and we would be happy to provide that for you after we have a short introductory call to learn about your business and bookkeeping needs.
How do you evaluate the bookkeepers?
We offer a comprehensive process understanding the bookkeepers in terms of attitude, availability, and personality. They are tested specifically on accounting and bookkeeping functions from basic to advanced, and we gain an understanding of any specializations, industry experience, software certifications and training they may bring to the table. We also go through intense practical reviews, all tailored around your specific needs.
We have an in-house HR/talent acquisition team, how can you still help?
For firms or organizations with internal HR or talent acquisition teams, we help when it comes to vetting all of those candidates they are finding for your roles. This means, we don't do any recruitment, we support your team instead by putting your candidates through accounting knowledge assessments, practical work assessments and interviews, and even software skills tests. Many HR or talent teams are made up of amazing HR professionals, but not accounting professionals. They know what your business needs in terms of fit and company culture, so let us help them determine if those candidates can do the work you want to hire them for....saving you time, money, and frustration!
Why is this better than just hiring who I like?
We’ve been in the accounting industry for over 25 years, and we have worked with 100s of businesses and bookkeepers on a regular basis
As business owners, we might understand what we want, but not necessarily what we need from an accounting perspective. Sometimes this results in a relationship where our expectations are not understood or not met, resulting in a bad experience on both sides. We help you avoid any of this by understanding your business needs, and evaluating all of the profiles to see that they meet criteria on multiple assessment levels.
How does this benefit my business?
As accountants, and a previous private accounting firm, we’ve worked with businesses in a variety of industries, and understand from an accounting perspective the skills and expertise needed from potential bookkeepers. We also very much understand to joy and pain of hiring the best candidate for a role.
What we do for you is help take away a lot of confusion of having to do the vetting yourself, so you can just focus on having a bookkeeper who brings a lot of value to your business
