Practice Areas

SkyWater’s practice areas are each led by highly-experienced executive recruiters who constantly screen, interview and network with top professionals and executives within their specialty.

Accounting & Finance

The SkyWater Search Partners Accounting and Finance recruiting practice is founded on long-standing relationships with leading companies in the Midwest, and an extensive network of top accounting and financial executives throughout the Minneapolis and Chicago areas.

As financial recruiters, our focus is to find and secure the best accounting and finance talent for our client’s specific business needs. A short list of best choices – defined by qualifications, experience, expectations, and insight.

What We Hear From Our Clients

  • Sometimes we lose great candidates to other competitive offers.
  • We lose out on top talent because people don’t recognize our brand or product.
  • Our position has been posted for over a month, and our internal efforts just aren’t bringing in the right candidates.
  • There’s a shortage of talent because of all the changes in accounting policy, specifically in the areas of revenue recognition and new lease standards.
  • We’ve outgrown our current ERP system and need talent that can take us to the next level.
  • We’re having trouble finding someone who not only has the technical capabilities for the role, but also excels in soft skills, and is a good fit for our company culture.

Why SkyWater?

  • We know how to highlight the strengths of your organization. Our process is quick and efficient, which reduces the chances that another offer will get to a great candidate before yours.
  • Often times as your recruiter, we also serve as your marketer for the position you need to be filled. We truly act as an extension of your organization.
  • The talent that has experience working with new technology and policy changes could be currently employed, or not looking for new opportunities. We have access to those candidates.
  • Our extensive screening process keeps our clients best interests at heart. We understand that technical skills are important, but we also screen heavily for soft-skills and work with our clients to understand the company culture and growth goals.

We’ll find, vet, and secure accounting and finance talent with the skill set you’re looking for – but we won’t overwhelm you with a multitude of candidates. You’ll only see your best choices based on your specific requirements and company culture. Our goal is to make the recruiting and hiring process more focused, efficient, and effective. We help you start with your Short List .

“Our experience was Stephanie went very well – honestly, I don’t have any opportunities that I feel could have improved the process. She was very easy to connect with – she seems to have listened to our needs & placed a great candidate for our organization. We are excited to welcome him to our team, and his first three days are proving that we made a great choice. I appreciate our partnership with SkyWater & definitely would recommend it to others should they need recruitment help. Thank you!”
