Martin Elam

ConsultantSpecialising in Accountancy & Finance

Martin started his journey in Accountancy & Finance recruitment in 2023; he's a CIMA Qualified Accountant with over 17 years experience in the industry and 4 years PQE. He worked for some well-known companies across Leeds and Bradford as a Finance Business Partner, Management Accountant and Finance Analyst, before making the move into recruitment.

Works with experienced qualified Accountancy & Finance professionals across West and North Yorkshire, bringing a unique insight for both our candidates and clients, having both worked the roles himself and having recruited Accountants into his teams in the past. You won't have to explain any jargon or acronyms to him!

Outside of work, Martin's friends and family are most important to him - or at least that's what he tells them - his one true love is really Leeds United. He likes to swim and go kayaking, as well as playing and watching sports like football, cricket and golf.
