It's All About the People

The Accountants One Way

The History of Accountants One

Accountants One has been recruiting Accounting and Financial professionals in Atlanta since 1973.  Our focus on high-quality relationship building has allowed us to develop a unique database populated by an elite group of candidates. Our commitment to honesty, integrity, and confidentiality attracts an exceptional community of candidates focused on ethical career growth.

In 2008, Accountants One’s first regional office opened in Raleigh, North Carolina and the firm continued to expand in 2013 with the opening of their Charlotte, North Carolina office.

Core Values and Beliefs

At A1, we realize that location does not matter. With a genuine focus on serving others and a commitment to excellence, a great teammate can be anywhere.

Core Values and Beliefs

An organization should not set a goal for an individual; rather, the organization should ask the individual what they want to achieve, and then hold the individual accountable for achieving their personal goal.

Core Values and Beliefs

Effective listening is an essential A1 communication skill. We recognize that effective listening is difficult – requiring tireless discipline and professionalism; however, we recognize that listening is essential in providing a consistent first-class experience for our clients, candidates, and our team.

Core Values and Beliefs

A1 IS LOOKING FOR OUR NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS. IS IT YOU?
