"Hiring someone to oversee your company's finances is possibly the most strategic but high-stress business decision you will make. At The CSP Group, we aim at closing the gap between great companies and top-performing finance and accounting professionals.

- James Cairns, Founder

Why hire with The CSP Group?

We know the St. Louis market for accounting & finance professionals.

Our clients hire with us because we produce the results they want. From our warm, personal touch to our industry expertise, they are able to feel comfortable with us and confident in our abilities. We make it a point to express to them that we believe in putting the interests of our clients ahead of our own; and they know we mean it because we guarantee their satisfaction in our contracts. It is clear to our clients that we don’t just want to do business with them once; we want to cultivate a lasting partnership.

Technical Expertise

Our technical knowledge of finance and accounting is the differentiating factor that sets us apart from our competitors. We share with you the experience of working at a large public accounting firm, as well as in finance and accounting departments of public and private companies, which allows us to fully understand the nature of your opportunity, both technically and culturally. When our team conducts a search for you, we are able to identify the most qualified candidates and speak intelligently to them about your opportunity. But our expertise doesn't stop there. Our recruiting process enables us to lead you and your ideal candidate step-by-step into and through the interviewing process so that you maximize your chance of convincing him or her to join your team.

Trusted Partner

We are a boutique consultancy. Unlike large national search firms who are often viewed as "accountant mills" driven by quotas, our strength is not derived from the number of placements we make, but from the trusting partnerships we develop and the continual high level of service we provide to our clients. This relentless commitment to meeting your needs and surpassing your expectations is what allows The CSP Group and its clients to succeed.

Recruiting & Staffing Services

Contingency Search

Contingency search is the most popular choice of our clients. Through this service, employers can review resumes and interview candidates at no cost. It is only when a hire is made that a fee is due. We stand behind the quality of our candidates and offer a guarantee that if he or she leaves for any reason during the first 90 days on the job, we will replace the candidate within 90 days to the satisfaction of our client, or immediately refund the placement fee in full.

Retained Search

Under this option, we move your need to the very top of our list of search assignments and give you our full attention. 1/3 of the fee is due upon commencement of the search, 1/3 of the fee is due upon presentation of qualified candidates, and the final 1/3 of the fee is due on the hired candidate’s first day of work. We stand behind the quality of our candidates and offer a guarantee that if he or she leaves for any reason during the first 90 days on the job, we will replace the candidate within 90 days to the satisfaction of our client, or immediately refund the placement fee in full.

Interim Talent Solutions

We have flexible solutions for both your short-term and long-term temporary staffing needs. Whether you have a key employee out on maternity leave, need some extra help with year-end close, or have a special project that requires extra resources, we have consultants who can step right in and hit the ground running. Hourly rates vary by level of candidate required.
