Roles in Finance we recruit
CFO / Finance Director
A Board member, leader and figure head ultimately responsible for finance a trusted partner to the CEO / MD. As accounting and finance recruiters we recognise the CFO / FD will play a key role in helping to attract and subsequently retain the finance team. The CFO / FD will define the structure, business vision and strategy. With a key focus on people and potential future talent to provide mid – long term succession plans. Our senior finance recruitment team understand how to recruit a CFO / Finance Director and will provide the support needed to identify and hire the best possible leader for your business.
Financial controllers are the link that bonds finance to the Exec team. Technical finance and communication skills with a strong understanding of the entire business are critical. These roles are attractive to candidates who are ACA or ACCA qualified possibly moving from practice or a financial accounting bias role. Managing a team is likely to be a key focus for the FC so a strong mentoring approach and a ‘roll your sleeves up’ attitude can help. Commercial awareness and the ability to build trust and inspire others to raise the profile of finance is key. Being able to interpret and present the financial status to a range of stakeholders and explain the impact this has on the company goals and objectives. As experienced Finance recruiters we understand the relationship between the FC and the leadership team is key and we pay specific attention to not just the technical ability of the individual but also the key competencies and style required to be successful.
The Audit function will typically be a fantastic platform to recruit recently / newly qualified ACA / ACCA candidates from practice into your business. Utilising the audit and technical accounting experience gained within practice to develop operational review, business risk and compliance skills. A fulfilling long-term career move for some and for others a great opportunity to join an organisation and leapfrog into other areas of finance. The role of audit has evolved, Audit teams must build strong relationships across the business structure. Softer skills are critical to be able to build relationships and be most effective in making process and business recommendations. Specialising in accountancy recruitment we can source candidates moving from external audit into Industry and all levels up to Head of Audit.

Too often we see candidates disillusioned with the degree of true business partnering which can have an impact on the success of the hire.
