Over the past 50 years, Sparks Group has matched top job seekers with top companies to fill open information technology, accounting and finance, office and administrative, and creative positions. Since 1970, we’ve analyzed shifting employment trends to identify the best way to solve talent acquisition and retention challenges.

In our fourth installment of our 5 Decades of Staffing Delight series we wanted to highlight our growth during the 2000s and how we expanded our staffing solutions to address staffing needs across accounting, finance, and information technology. Read the previous articles about how Sparks Group was founded and served employers and job seekers during the first three decades here: 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

Expanding Recruiting Into Accounting and Finance

In 2000, Sparks Group expanded its services to address accounting and finance staffing needs. There are several challenges when it comes to recruiting accounting and financial talent, including attracting younger professionals and attracting candidates with the technology and analysis skills needed to assess financial data and apply it to business objectives. Understanding this, Sparks Group leverages decades of industry and market expertise to help employers recruit skilled professionals with the technical knowledge and expertise needed to successfully carry out essential financial projects.

Today, Sparks Group’s finance and accounting staffing solutions match skilled professionals with Fortune 100 companies, Big Four Accounting Firms, regional credit unions, and global banks to fill roles including: 

  • Auditor
  • Accounts Payable
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Payroll Specialist
  • Billing & Invoicing
  • Financial Analyst
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Budgeting & Forecasting

Expanding Into Information Technology Staffing

In 2001, Sparks Group saw a rising need of technical skill sets for information technology positions and expanded its capabilities to include IT recruiting solutions to match skilled IT candidates with employers. Since then, we have worked with organizations to find the talent with the expertise necessary to establish a strong online presence, create useful applications, and manage mission-critical data.     

Today, Sparks Group provides employers with customized IT staffing services to place talent across the following focuses: 

“[Sparks employees] are true partners to me! I'm so thankful I have them as a resource.”
