The Way We Get Things Done

Our direct hire talent solutions are individually designed to align with your company-specific goals — all by way of Century Group’s singular, three-phase process: identify, evaluate and deliver.

Phase 1
Phase 2
Phase 3
Phase 1


We’re a people business, which is at the basis of how and why we work. The first step in our methodology is to interview key members of your accounting and finance team to understand your company, its culture, strategic objectives and current challenges. It’s only then that we can jointly define the breadth of your company’s position and performance expectations to identify the ideal professional who meets those requirements. From there, it’s on us to excavate our network and tighten the search from many to a select few who meet the established criteria — and our Century Group standards.

Phase 2


The matching process is where our recruiters really shine. We carefully interview our talent pipeline to assess various factors outside of their experience and on-the-job acuity, including motivation, readiness and soft skills. Our standardized resume format allows us to efficiently evaluate prequalified candidates — stacking them against each other to rank their suitability for the specific opportunity. Only the top five to six candidates will make it onto our short list. And your desk.

Phase 3


Our recruiting team sticks by our client’s side through the interview and final selection stages, helping to provide clarification and gauge compatibility for both parties. Century Group’s executive recruiting service delivery includes complementary reference and background checks, salary negotiation and onboarding assistance to ensure the candidate is ready upon an offer. But the relationship doesn’t end there. Our job continues well after the candidate’s start date to guarantee a seamless transition and satisfaction for all involved.
