The new way to get work done (Sponsored)

Apr 08, 2021

A Changing Landscape

For some time, the accounting profession has been changing at a rapid rate.

Swift advances in technology, increased and changing client needs, and resourcing challenges are forcing firms to reconsider how they operate. Even the nature of how we work, where we work, and the kinds of work we deliver have caused accounting firms to re-evaluate how they work and look at new and innovative ways to get the job done.

Along with this, we’re also seeing a change in the role of the accountant. They are no longer viewed as ‘just a bean counter’ accounting professionals are expected to be agile, flexible and responsive, a business partner. Clients also expect a broader range of services.

“This is all great in theory, and the opportunities for growth are exciting. But, as a firm owner, how do you juggle it all? How do you deliver consistently high-quality services, find the talent resources to deliver the projects and services, and meet your client’s business needs? We were experiencing this first-hand. For us, resourcing had become the number one issue within our firm. Sourcing permanent talent was costly, restrictive and extremely time-consuming. It was also taking me away from working on the firm, and instead, pulled me into working in the business. We needed to find a new way to get work done, and that’s when the idea for Clockwork was born.”  Tadhg Moriarty FCA, CTC, Founder, Clockwork
