From entry level to C-suite roles, professional services firms offer challenging and exciting career opportunities for business services professionals. 

At Totum, we work across all functions including People & HR, Technology, Finance, Business Development, Marketing, Transformation and Change, and more. We have huge experience in helping candidates find the right role in firms that can take careers to the next level.

Whether you are already working in the professional services sector and looking for your next step up, or you’re interested in moving into the sector from outside industry, we can help you find exactly the right placement to fulfil your ambitions. 

We cover a wide number of permanent roles across the professional services sector. But we also manage temporary, contract and interim placements for those wanting more flexibility, a chance to get stuck into critical projects and/or the chance to work with a number of different businesses in a relatively short space of time.

We have long-standing relationships with many of our candidates, some of whom have worked in professional services for years and have come to us for several roles throughout their careers. 

Alternatively, you might be at the start of your career looking to get established in a sector that can provide solid foundations for growth. 

Or it might be your first step into professional services from wider industry – we are delighted to have been able to help many candidates transition successfully into the sector, from all sorts of backgrounds including retail, advertising and the British Army.

The appeal of professional services is understandable. A highly resilient sector, professional services firms offer a huge range of roles for all levels of seniority and experience. And more than that, at a time of change, many roles are exciting opportunities to make a real difference and implement lasting change.

We work with all sizes of firm and operate across the world – in both mature and emerging markets including the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Africa and Europe. This means that we can support you at every stage of your career, whether you are just starting out, or you’re looking for new challenges in the most senior positions, in leading firms across global offices.

At leadership level, we understand the vital importance of working in partnership with candidates. Our deep understanding of the sector means we are uniquely placed to match candidates to firms that can offer the right cultural fit to lead and implement change. And we work alongside candidates, providing personal and tailored support throughout what is typically a more involved recruitment process at leadership level. 

We are proud of the role we’ve played in helping to grow a community of business services professionals who are thriving at all levels of professional services firms.
