Our Mission

Our mission is to positively change the game of recruitment. Creating a remarkable experience for tax professionals, and the executives that hire them.

We achieve this through a combination of methodologies, constant innovation, and the continuous personal and professional development of our A-Team.

No job sites, no job postings, no social media posts with your job details. The trend in the recruitment industry is to focus on only postings and social media “call outs.”

We do things differently, and our approach allows us to maintain one of the lowest interview-to-placement ratios in our industry!

History of Company

Founded by a CPA who—after hearing the frustrations of senior tax executives and CFOs with their existing options for finding great tax professionals in the market—created a specialized recruitment and consulting firm dedicated solely to the recruitment of high-performance tax professionals.

2014

Foxwood started helping our clients throughout Canada find great tax professionals in the United States and other countries around the globe. We were able to do this through our unique and differentiated approach, and our ability to do our great work virtually.

2016

Officially expanded our services into the United States.
Foxwood started looking to outside innovation, that along with our already differentiated methodologies created a remarkable recruitment experience for the tax community we serve.

2018

Expanded the executive team and developed into the Foxwood A-Team, we also created a focus internally for the different geographies we are operating in. Making our specialization and niche in tax even more relevant to the tax professionals and CFO’s that we are working with.

2021

Launched Foxwood Firm Search, with a team that is focused purely on assisting tax professionals open to making a move within the firm world.

I was looking to hire a Director of Tax in one of our US offices and decided to work with Foxwood Tax Search as these searches tend to be difficult, and the specialization seemed like it would be a huge benefit. I was not wrong. The team at Foxwood Tax Search took the time to dig deeply to truly understand the technical details of the role and what I needed, not just what was written on a job description. They took the cultural fit we needed into account, worked well with everyone internally that was involved, and the outcome was better than I could have expected. I have now used Foxwood Tax Search again for a Tax Manager position, and again they've nailed it! I would highly recommend them.

I have worked with the Foxwood Team multiple times resulting in several successful recruits, and I am impressed with the unique approach and deep level of customer service. Focusing on tax search only pays off for Foxwood as they understand the needs of a tax department, and deliver the most relevant candidates within a short time frame. For each search project, I am given no more than three candidates who are well prepared for the challenges ahead of them.
