  • Takes the time to ask questions vs. make assumptions.
  • Has transparency as a core value.
  • Is specialized in building high-performance tax teams.
  • Is focused on placing the RIGHT tax professional into the RIGHT opportunities.

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.

They were very professional, explained their process, and undertook an in-depth discussion with us to comprehend the role. With a clear understanding of our requirements, they were able to make recommendations to adjust what we thought we were looking for to what we needed. Within a few weeks we had successfully made our hire. Consequently, I would highly recommend the team at Foxwood Tax Search.
