I have known EquityFD for some time but had never previously engaged with EquityFC. Having started as the new CFO at a venture capital backed business I needed to recruit a new number two to me and used the services of EquityFC to enable this hire. I was very impressed with their engagement levels and business partnering approach, enabling me to run a process which resulted in a great new addition to the business. Job well done – thank you.

As Crossword Cybersecurity plc moved from early start up to growth stage, we decided to recruit a full time Finance Director. EquityFD was recommended by one of our investors. Sarah and her team did an excellent job of understanding and shaping our requirements with their deep expertise in this specialist area, putting forward a strong shortlist of vetted candidates and helping us select the ideal FD for Crossword.

I have worked with EquityFD and EquityFC previously so instructed them again when sourcing a new Financial Controller for XLN.

Paul was very selective in who he sent me to interview enabling me to make an informed choice and hire an excellent calibre new team member.

Neil Conaghan, CFO, XLN

I have known EquityFD and EquityFC for over 15 years, and they have  successfully helped on a number of roles. I recently asked them to help me find a new Head of finance/ FD for a primary care business I have joined as CEO.

I choose to work with them  due to their ability to understand business needs and provide candidates with the right qualities and skills, normally on relatively short notice from their well developed network.

They were able to provide a good shortlist of candidates and ultimately a great hire very quickly which is a real benefit in a rapidly growing business.

As the CFO of a fast growth, PE backed business I got in contact with Paul at EquityFC with an urgent request to find me a new Financial Controller for the business.

Paul immediately focused in on the key technical and interpersonal requirements for the role and presented me with a highly relevant shortlist which enabled me to hire a great new number two within a short time frame.

As CFO of a fast growth, private equity backed insuretech business, getting the right Financial Controller into the organisation was always going to be a priority.
