As one of Yorkshire’s largest independent firms of chartered accountants, auditors and advisers with a heritage that goes back over 170 years, Garbutt + Elliott’s success and
continued growth is attributable to the quality of the people that make up its team.


‘We continuously invest a significant amount of time and resources to inspire and support our people to be the best they can be, that’s the foundation Garbutt + Elliott has been built upon – after all, the culture of a business is defined by the quality of its people and their behaviours. We are proud of our culture, it’s at the heart of everything we stand for, our people go the extra mile for our clients to ensure they deliver exceptional service.

As with every forward-thinking business we continually search for people who want to make a difference and will contribute to the future success of Garbutt + Elliott. Being a Partner is about leadership, strategic thinking, building a strong team ethos and consistently delivering excellent client service. We look for Partners who are completely aligned with our culture and values and will be proud to represent what we stand for.


‘Selecting the right recruitment and search firm is integral to ensure that new Partners will thrive and be successful at Garbutt + Elliott. Sharp Consultancy, in a highly competitive market, identified and helped us recruit three new partners within audit, tax and corporate finance. What made them stand out was the care, support and
attention to detail through every step of the process. Sharp Consultancy offered help throughout the interview process and provided insightful feedback from/to each candidate, smoothing out any challenges. A year later, the Partners we recruited have been a huge success and their values completely align with Garbutt + Elliott’s. I would highly recommend Sharp Consultancy to any business who cares about how they are represented in the market and wish to attract talented, relationship driven individuals.’
