Trace is an innovative recruitment consultancy. Our person organisation fit profiling tool, the Predictive Fit Profiler, is helping us fit our candidates with our clients from a personality, behaviours, motivations and cultural compatibility perspective.


Trace is a London based specialist Accountancy & Finance recruitment consultancy. We deliver permanent and interim briefs in London and the Home Counties across Industry & Commerce, Financial Services and Not for Profit.

Our Consultant's specialise in a Market and either Permanent or Interim, and are trained with a suite of tools to offer an additional level of service and assessment so often promised but rarely delivered by our competitors that ensure we live up to our promise - Tracing Talent that Fits.

We believe that it is our intuition regarding person and company "fit" that makes the difference. But how do you quantify "fit" - and how is it measured?

We believe in 3 layers of fit when assessing a candidate:


1. Has the candidate got the right qualifications and experience?

2. Are they any good at what they do? Are they competent?

3. Will they fit into the organisation?


Currently the third layer is typically based on an instinctive point of view by the recruiter you engage with. Trace has launched the Predictive Fit Profiler to help assess “fit”. As part of our recruitment process every candidate we represent will complete the online profiler assessing, personality type, thinking style, cultural compatibility and motivations bringing an extra level of insight into our process, increasing the success rate of the recruitment we deliver. We are also able to profile your team so we can match your internal culture carries against external talent.
