With an ex-FD as one of our founders, we’ve always believed in the value a strong and proactive finance function can add to a recruitment or consultancy business of any size.
Long gone are the days when the finance function was a necessary evil - today the finance function looks after the numbers, systems and cash as a given, but far more than that, it acts as proactive and supportive business partner to the CEO and divisional management. This can mean a full-on role in helping build and improve the business or a more externally focused role with an eye on M&A, succession planning and working towards a private equity investment, trade sale or other “exit” event.
For a commercially aware and socially confident accountant, the finance function gives you a holistic view of the business from where you have a huge opportunity to contribute. Not for the faint-hearted or the shrinking violet, but a great place to make a difference.
