Making room to grow.
As the Big Five became the Big Four in the wake of scandal, new regulations put more pressure around internal controls and compliance. The accounting world grew more complex, and the importance of audit quality became more critical than ever. At the same time, a problem that had always plagued accounting firms – turnover – remained the largest barrier to building a strong culture, planning for succession, and driving growth.
Having had the opportunity to use his training and skills abroad on secondment, he saw great potential in placing the right audit talent in the right place for the duration needed to manage busy season or other big projects. For young auditors, it would mean gaining invaluable experience while seeing the world. For firms, it would relieve pressure, reduce burnout, and allow their stars to shine and help grow the business. Inspired by the secondment model, Darren set out to make it better – with more expertise, more innovation, and more support to create the best possible experience for consultants and the firms they help. In 2006, Makosi was born.
Our technology platform brings efficiency and transparency to hiring, onboarding, and project management, while our dedicated engagement managers and journey advocates ensure that our clients and our consultants are fully supported throughout the process.
What’s more, we’re giving some of our revenue, and asking our consultants to give some of their time and energy, to put 10,000 children in developing countries through school. Because at Makosi, it’s all about making room to grow.

Partner in Charge
“Makosi consultants are professional, friendly and approachable. All the things that you would look for in a full-time employee. Their work ethic is huge.”
Director of Operations, Financial Services Audit
“We have been impressed with the quality of the work from the Makosi consultants. They easily handle the workload, even during a busy season, and are able to navigate the time zone difference due to the virtual nature of their work. They are professional and eager to help the team. We cannot say enough good things about working with Makosi consultants.”
Human Resources Manager
PKF O'Connor Davies, LLP
“The auditors provided to us by Makosi are all bright and extremely conscientious. They enabled us to get over resourcing issues. They are good auditors, and we keep renewing their contracts. The Makosi support team is also excellent. You are allocated a relationship manager who is available at short notice to deal with any issues. Their IT support to their team is also very prompt and reliable. We would recommend them.”
“In the fourth quarter of 2021, we suddenly found ourselves participating in the great resignation and local recruiters had no candidates to offer. We were introduced to Makosi at the PKF International 2021 North America Regional Meeting. Our rep, Ryan Najmulski, quickly explained Makosi’s process and in short order had candidate interviews lined up. The interview scheduling and onboarding processes were seamless. We will definitely be working with Makosi going forward to fill our capacity needs.”
