Burke Recruiting specializes in placing accounting professionals at all levels.

However, as a boutique firm, we are well-positioned to undertake specialized searches including property managers, human resource managers, analysts and administrators.

For each assignment, we develop a customized strategy that draws upon our highly-developed database, personal contacts and recruiting skills to attract passive candidates who are not reading advertisements.

As we normally operate on a contingency basis, we absorb all the risk – we are confident in our ability to deliver results!
