Do headhunting agencies exist that work with candidates to get them into desired roles? If yes any recommendations? (Of course I don’t mean they assure you a role, but rather work with you through the process to ensure you’ve got a good chance) - especially for leadership opportunities?

Not really.

And to put a point on it, they all will say they do — but they get paid by the people trying to fill the role, not by the candidate. So they’ll take your resume and have a conversation with you to hear what you’re interested in, but then it’s a crapshoot whether they get a req for a role that matches your needs.

Cast a wide net, that’s a better bet. Every headhunter firm will take your initial call.

Left big four as a first year manager for a controller role with a smaller audit client. When I left I had no idea what my long term goal was or where I wanted to end up. Half a year into the new gig and realize it’s not what I want to do. I don’t think I realized the pros of a manager role for a large company at the time, or even a service line change within big four. My daily tasks are repetitive and not challenging and there’s more small stuff to deal with. What should my next move be?
