Your career is important to you – you choose it and you live it. Our role is to provide the right opportunities at the right time to enable your progression. The tax market is ever more complex with new career paths being created in more diverse areas and with more specialisation on offer than ever before. The choices have never been so wide – our job is to navigate you through it to find the perfect role. With over twenty years’ experience and our specialised market knowledge, we are perfectly placed to guide you on your choices and optimum time to move.
Changing job is a serious business and is one of the key life choices most people make and we treat it as seriously as you do. Because we are experts in our field and have a superb overview of the market we will introduce you to only those roles that are highly compatible with your aspirations. We won’t waste your time.
We are always keen to hear from new people. Whether you are training, have just qualified and are keen to explore the market, or are a Senior Manager/Director looking for that final step to partnership, we can help. Perhaps you are happy where you are but just want to benchmark yourself and know what else is out there. As you would expect from any respected recruitment firm, we are always discreet, and all discussions and correspondence are completely confidential.
We cover all tax disciplines including all aspects of Corporate Tax, Personal Tax, Employer & Employee Taxes, Indirect Taxes and niche areas such as R&D, CA’s etc. across the whole of the Midlands.
Making a Career Move
Just making the decision whether to stay put or look for new horizons can be a challenge. We know the market and will provide the context to evaluate your current role, and help decide on your next step, the best time to move and the options available to you. Then we introduce you to those options!
Our company ethos is to recognise that everyone has their own take on things including their career. By getting to know you we will find the best fit for your ambition, talent and personality.
We tend to forge long term relationships which don’t end after a successful appointment. A career is a journey and our contacts know they can call on us at any time. Many keep in touch – just touching base to check they are on track – throughout their career. We are proud to say that many have become friends over the years, newly qualifieds have become Partners or Head of Tax and we take great pride in seeing the people we have placed flourish.
Working With You
Once we understand where you are in your career and what you’re looking for in a new role, our wealth of experience means that we will quickly and efficiently advise you of your market position and the best opportunities available to you.
As a matter of course, we offer all our candidates CV advice, pre-interview training and advice with psychometric testing and competency-based interviewing.
From the first conversation to helping you through the sometimes nerve-wracking resignation process, we offer support and guidance. We do not just organise interviews and leave the rest to you; we continue to liaise with you and your potential employer(s) throughout the process.
We also appreciate the potential difficulty of searching for your next career move whilst in your current role and are happy to talk and meet outside of working hours.

Don't just take our word for it - see what some of our candidates have to say about us below.
"I was referred to Anne by a former colleague. She really is a breath of fresh air in the world of recruitment. Without Anne I wouldn’t have had fantastic job options with a great range of firms and ultimately wouldn’t have found the perfect role for me. She is proactive, well connected, personable and honest. Most of all she listened and cared about what I wanted from my next role. The support and guidance exceeded expectations and she always went above and beyond, from interview preparation to help through a particularly difficult resignation and notice period. I would not hesitate to recommend Anne to anyone considering their next career move in tax in the Midlands."
"As a result of giving me good advice earlier in my career (to stay put in my then current role), when I later wanted to move firms as a Tax Partner, it was AMR I entrusted to handle it for me. It was a smooth process and I trusted Anne's ability to handle the negotiations on my behalf."
Tax Partner, Big 4
"I have moved three times in my long and illustrious (!) career and have returned to Anne each time I've had itchy feet or felt it was time for a fresh challenge. Each time, she has come up with exactly the right role and has helped me prepare well for interviews. Each time, I have secured the role I wanted."
Personal Tax Manager, Top 10 and Independent firm
"We approached Anne with an urgent requirement in a niche area. Anne took the time to fully understand what we needed, produced very relevant candidates and her support during the process was fantastic. I would recommend her in a flash".
MD, Tax Boutique
"What separates Anne from the crowd is her knowledge of the market and ability to share trends and information without betraying confidences or giving away competitor information. Her appraisal of candidates is accurate with an astute analysis of their fit with my team."
Tax Partner, Top 10
"Having sought advice several times over the years, when the time came this year to finally make a move, Anne was absolutely the right person to guide me. The fact that she knew my history over a period of years, meant she understood my journey and was invaluable in bringing clarity to the situation. It's hard moving roles as there can be a lot of competing issues. AMR really took the time to help me resolve them, and I'm delighted and convinced that I've made the right decision."
