Recruitment for tax professionals at the Manager, Senior Manager through to Director level is unique and constantly changing. You’re looking to bring on a tax professional who is in the midst of growing their skill set, likely starting to specialize within a narrower niche within tax and is in a prime “growth” phase in their career in terms of titles and compensation. A very interesting mix that is difficult to navigate, unless it’s all you do! We help our clients navigate these searches to a successful outcome, that’s what happens when you do repetitive work within a narrow niche.

Our clients comprise some of the most respected tax departments and firms in North America, they all demand the top tax talent.

The network and relationships we’ve created are why our services are in high demand. That and our experience and knowledge allow us to deliver the tax talent that everyone wants, but few can find.

We’ve spent years delivering a differentiated experience at a level of excellence to that community.  Most tax professionals DO NOT apply to postings, those same professionals DO return our calls and make introductions to their networks.

If you are building, expanding, or upgrading your tax team, call us—it’ll be the last call you have to make!


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.

Features of the Service

Proactive Recruiting

We are constantly recruiting and being introduced to tax professionals, and by having detailed discussions regardless of a specific position means that we get their true skill sets and desires. Meaning no “massaging” of experience to fit a specific role.

Wish List

We dive deep into understanding what our candidates truly want, what progression looks like for them, and how they define an ideal company, culture, industry, position, etc. No square pegs into round wholes—we do it the RIGHT way!

No Postings

Recruiting firms use this to bolster “their” database, not solve “your” recruitment needs. It doesn’t work, least of all within the tax community, and we refuse to do it.

Candidate Profile

We go beyond the traditional interview, and use the detail to create a comprehensive profile. Clients will know goals, strengths, weaknesses – everything. This allows you to have more meaningful conversations and helps you make the right selection. The “first” time.

Interview To Placement Ratio

We maintain one of the lowest interview to placement ratios in the industry, meaning you are not wasting your time meeting the wrong candidates before being comfortable making an offer to the “right” tax professional.


Talk to us about our guarantee. We do our due diligence before allowing a placement to happen, and because of that, our placements “stick” for much longer than those of other search firms.
