Who We Are

The Resource link We make great Accounting & Finance placements that last!

Is your Accounting & Finance recruiter working for you, or for their placement fee? Our recruiters focus on making the right match. As a client this means that if we present a candidate for your position, they are looking for what you have to offer.

Based in Scottsdale, AZ, The Resource Link was established in 2002. With over 20 years of successful executive recruiting experience we continue to have a reputation for remarkable customer service and great placements.

Our founder Bernadette Grattan realized that there was a need for an Accounting & Finance Executive Recruiter that provided consistent and effective customer service to both the candidate and client in the Greater Phoenix area. The result, The Resource Link, with a mission based on exceptional customer service and the resources to provide your business access to a larger pool of high quality active and passive candidates. Call us Headhunters. We don't mind, we are! 

We are not a “resume house” or a “slap everything against the wall to see what sticks” recruiter. We take the time to find out from both parties what each is looking for. AND we talk to the candidate about your opportunity BEFORE we send you their resume.

Stop paying 25% for a recruiter who has emailed with a candidate and determines they are qualified for your position.

Our Accounting & Finance recruiters are ready to partner with you in your job search! Our philosophy is simple. We would not be here if it was not for you. We are not an employment agency; we are your partner in finding the right opportunity and the right next hire!

Kim P, HR Director

It is refreshing to find a recruiter in this marketplace who is sincere in their approach and who actually cares about you as a candidate. It is a night and day difference between Bernadette and other recruiters. She is absolutely so good at her job and her assistance was greatly appreciated.

Linda, Candidate

I just want to express to you that I am excited to have you represent me as you have demonstrated a professionalism, duty of care, and thoughtfulness that I have not encountered with any other recruiter. You asked a number of probing questions to get to the root of what drives my job search and what makes me a viable candidate for your clients. Your care for my present environment was unexpected, but certainly refreshing as it indicated you intend to represent me (and your clients) with the utmost in honesty. I am prepared to proceed with any position that you determine to be a good fit for me. I trust that you operate with the same due diligence and concern with your clients as you did with me, so any position you match me with is certain to be the right fit.

Mike, Candidate

The Resource Link is, in my opinion, the best networked recruiting firm in town. I have had a higher success rate with them, both in candidates and quality of candidates for my business needs, than other firms. The CEO, Bernadette Grattan, is professional and gives each client an incredible feeling of personal service. You always feel as if you are their only client.

In hiring many professional accounting and finance positions over the past several years, Bernadette and her team have been tireless in ensuring my needs are met. Most importantly, this firm provides quality candidates in a timely manner.

Matt S., VP, Finance

It is refreshing to feel valued by a recruiting company. You are definitely one of a kind! My boss and I were comparing our past recruiter experiences and realized we only worked with one that was good—it was you!
