Denver recruiters and Denver temporary agencies are challenged many times when engaged to find qualified talent under short time constraints due to immediate termination of a key employee. However, these corporate inconveniences happen even in the best of organizations, and no one expects or is prepared for such untimely personnel management challenges.
Such was the case with a highly respected, global manufacturer of geophysical equipment in partnership with a Luxembourg software/hardware development company. How key was the position? Very, since it was the organization’s Accountant/Office Administrator position, which is central and connected to the organization’s strategic worldwide locations and their equipment, operating in over 100 countries.
J. Kent Staffing was engaged to conduct an immediate search. Since time was of the essence, our focused Denver recruiters, through The J. Kent Process, gained a thorough understanding of the global manufacturer’s organization, key management team, its strategic hiring goals and requirements for the Accountant/Office Administrator replacement position.
Since 1979, J. Kent has continually and substantially invested in identifying and attracting qualified talent in our area of Expertise. Fortunately, J. Kent’s Candidate Pool is rich with talent; therefore, within 2 hours of the search engagement call, our seasoned Denver Recruiters presented 3 qualified Accountant/Office Administrator candidates. All three were immediately scheduled for interviews.
As a result, within 4 days of the urgent call by the company, a job offer was extended, the offer was accepted and background and reference checks were completed. The new Accountant/Office Manager was hired to immediately take ownership and management of the organization’s accounting operations due to the unexpected vacancy to include: monthly financial statements, full cycle payroll, AP and human resource responsibilities. So, which one of the three candidates received the job offer?
J. Kent Staffing has gone through 5 recessions in the Denver market during the past 3+ decades, and understands the challenges for candidates and employers alike brought on by these turbulent times. The tempestuous job market is a challenge for everyone with plenty of layoffs, lots of applicants, and few jobs to be had.
However, there are still great candidates that rise to the top, like Sharon who received the job offer. Sharon’s resume speaks to 25 years of accounting experience holding such positions as: Director of Accounting, Assistant Corporate Controller, Accounting Supervisor, Accountant/Office Manager, Staff Accountant and Property Accountant.

Combine that with exceptional references, strong computer skills and extensive accounting software knowledge to include Great Plains, Solomon, Peachtree, and Microsoft Dynamics, we fully understand why the President of this global manufacturer selected Sharon to turn around and restructure their accounting operations.
