What you get from doing business with Acsour

Exact assessment Tests by Acsour enable you to receive an unbiased assessment of candidates for a vacancy by comparing their experience, skills, their level of professional expertise, and their background.
Additional assessment of the level of English

It is important for foreign companies that a chief accountant or a financial expert can freely interact with the company’s headquarters.

The expert we recommend will always take a test to assess his or her level of English and sound knowledge of accounting terminology.


Relevant expertise

Our tests are updated several times a year, which guarantees that they remain in line with changing industrial standards.

This enables Acsour to select the best candidates for your vacant positions.


In accordance with Federal Law No.116 dated 5 May 2014, starting from 1 January 2016 only accredited employment agencies may carry out secondment operations. Acsour has been included in the register of private employment agencies. It fully complies with the legislation and is ready to second personnel in strict compliance with Law No.116.

Acsour provides temporary personnel for bookkeeping, HR and administrative positions if you have a temporary lack of a full-time employee (the employee may be on a sick leave, on vacation or may have resigned), or if the amount of work in a certain area has grown and the company’s own resources are not sufficient to handle it.

This solution also enables foreign companies that enter the Russian market to formalize employment relations with their employees and proceed with operations without waiting for the business entity’s registration to be completed.

We offer you flexible pricing depending on the qualifications of the specialist in question.
