The idea behind the brand evolved from the launch of Equity FD 4 years earlier and in response to an increasing understanding of the specific challenges in recruiting at the financial controller level into a growth SME.
Finding a financial controller with strong business acumen and a desire to join a dynamic enterprise is no easy task. There are a lot of accountants out there and it is often tempting to adopt the 'one-size fits all' approach. We understand that this can be a limiting factor when recruiting for an entrepreneurial company (particularly one that has some degree of leverage and /or private equity backing) and our approach is specifically focused on seeking out only those candidates who positively want these roles.
Many of our people have worked within both blue-chip organisations as well as SMEs and so come with the benefit of 'big company, best practice' experience coupled with an understanding of the requirements of a hands-on role within an entrepreneurial company. Many have had experience of equity and debt financing structures and an exit driven agenda.
