Recruitment firm Idex Consulting has boosted its accountancy and finance team in Birmingham.
The agency, based at Colmore Plaza, has hired former Hays senior consultant Ricardo Manouchehri after deciding to launch into this sector.
Mr Manouchehri will cover senior UK roles within the sector working on already established relationships and joins Idex after stints with Hays and ERG.
He said: "I'm looking forward to expanding the business' sector coverage with accountancy and finance recruitment as the market is particularly buoyant at the moment."
He will report into managing director Tony Bates, who added: "We're very pleased to have Ricardo with us.
"He has proved himself to be a diligent, customer-focussed recruiter and the management team consider that these qualities suit him well for his new role.
"We believe that an additional service line into our existing relationships will only further enhance our ability to help our clients achieve their recruitment objectives."
Further to the expansion into accountancy and finance, Idex has also brought in a new legal division based in London which extends the company's reach out to the Middle Eastern market.
