Invest in the best people you can afford. Even amongst entry level. Especially amongst entry level staff! They underpin the whole of your finance function and provide the controls that instil confidence in the team.
And make sure you have the right people doing the right jobs. Don’t get hung up on job titles. We can help you with differences between a Finance Director and a Financial Controller so let us come and pick your brains on what you want your new recruit to do and we can find you suitable candidates.
Some of the skills, knowledge and positive attitude inherent in good candidates are not always apparent from their CVs. We will help draw these out of you and provide an honest assessment (and recommendations) of the types of role and environments that suit you.
We will prepare you for your interview, including where relevant, advice from our own FDs, to improve your chances of a successful placement.
If you’re tired of the relentless sales culture in your business and feel like you could do more for your clients and candidates then this could be the home for you. We’re not precious as to whether you have a background in finance recruitment as we have an extensive training programme to bring you up to speed.
We practice what we preach in recruiting for ourselves though, and so you will go through an exhaustive character testing process. This gives you confidence that we’re right for you as much as the other way around. Our consultants have 4 key character traits:
1. They’re resilient. Recruitment isn’t easy and you have to take a lot of knocks along the way.
2. They use initiative. They think ahead and don’t wait for things to happen.
3. They’re consultative. Our role is not one of an agent, moving CVs from one place to another. It’s that of a consultant; guiding, challenging and advising people along the way.
4. They want to improve. They don’t sit around wondering what they should do next. They ask, they read up, they learn.

Consultant Finance Directors
If you’re embarking on a portfolio finance director career, then we’d like to hear from you. We’ve been putting part-time finance directors into businesses since 1986 and indeed this was our only service line until 2014.
We have a network of part-time finance directors across the country who work for us with clients on a flexible basis. We don’t take large percentages of your day rate, nor do we expect you to carry out large-scale marketing efforts on our behalf. If you land a contract yourself then great, we’re here to support. If we land you a contract, we’ll discuss openly what we charge the client and pay to you. Throughout the contract, you’ll have access to any of our network and can pick up the phone any time for support.
There are more committed agreements to be had between us and you, whereby we carry out a joint marketing effort. In return, we do charge a small percentage of any contract win whether that be by yourself or by us.
Contact any of our specialist consultants to find out more.
