Our candidates

We provide advice, assistance and consultation on your career and are here to help you realise as much from your experiences to date as possible. We can do this because we are not a mass-market recruitment business; we undertake unique, individual assignments that require unique candidates like you.

Ambitious individuals for exceptional roles

Our clients are looking for ambitious individuals to add value to their business on a national and international basis. They are high-growth companies, often private-equity backed and they offer exceptional roles for commercially astute controllers.

The focus on where the business is going and how you can influence it will always be more important than the job title or specification. Getting the right balance between a robust controls environment and the needs of a growing business is always going to be challenging and there is often the added dimension of an exit driven agenda, whether a trade sale, an IPO or a secondary buy-out.

Our unique approach

Our approach is unique. We recruit people on the basis of what they have to offer and their mindset. We do not categorise people in any particular sector box. The type of roles you have had and your aspirations are the important criteria for us.

We work to ensure that the important issues are addressed: your fit with an organisation and its people, the identification of a shared vision and the utilisation of your entire skill set. You will only come to us if you are looking to be a crucial player and want to make a real difference in challenging and demanding environments.

Rather than ask you to complete a long and detailed application form online we would rather you ask yourself a few questions to see if Equity FC is going to be the right hunting ground for your next career opportunity.

  • Are you looking for a commercially focused role where you have exposure to all business issues and are a key part of a senior management team?
  • Do you find yourself frustrated by the delineated nature of finance in larger organisations and the over-emphasis on the career ladder?
  • Do you want to put more of you into your next role and use your all- round experiences rather than just a tiny part of your technical ability?
  • Do you prefer a more unstructured role rather than a prescriptive one?
  • Does the lack of a formal job specification excite you rather than intimidate you?
  • Are you interested and motivated by the prospect of being part of a successful exit for the business and its shareholders?
  • Does entrepreneurial spirit inspire you and are you keen to learn and develop a breadth of skills?
  • Do you have a longer term goal of becoming a Finance Director in an SME?

Hopefully these questions will prompt you to ask yourself what it is you want to get out of your next role.

Please do consider it carefully as the businesses we deal with are all going to involve mixing strategic and hands on, managing cash on the one hand and being involved with corporate transactions on the other and will be demanding technically and personally.

If you decide that you are interested in what we offer then please contact one of us.
