Unravelling the UK Recruitment Industry

Where companies find their perfect professional

Why Welfound?

A 2018 Bullhorn study revealed that talent shortage was the number one ranked challenge in the UK recruitment industry. That same study found that candidate referrals were recruitment agencies’ best source of quality talent. This is not a new revelation, but it does beg the question – why pay exorbitant recruitment fees when it’s the Accounting and Finance professionals themselves who have the best networks?


Professionals from Australia and New Zealand have been coming to London for many decades. They have proved to be a valuable resource within the Accounting and Finance industry, having both a similar skillset to their British counterparts as well as a strong work ethic. Welfound is building a community of professionals, who will have the ability to refer each other directly to your roles.
