I was introduced to EquityFD by an investor in my fast growth tech business. I needed to hire an FD but initially  I wasn’t sure about the exact  profile of the  person  I required. Sar ah and Robert  worked with me over a period of time to help to  iterate the spec and the person fit and introduced me to  a range of candidates . I have now taken on a new FD and he is proving to be a great asset to me and the business . This hire was born out of a thorough, intelligent and reflective process and enabled me to make a certain and informed decision.

Neville Roberts, CEO, Planixs

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.

Tom Ilube, Founder and CEO, Crossword Cybersecurity

Whilst EquityFD would not be considered the typical recruitment firm to identify a CFO for a large Social Enterprise such as Turning Point, we approached Joanna Adolph to partner us in our search because we firmly believed that she fully understood both the requirement of the role and the unique culture of the organisation. Joanna introduced us to a diverse range of candidates and we were able to successfully hire an impressive CFO who has recently joined us. We are delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending EquityFD to any organisation for their in depth understanding and experience of CFO recruitment.

Julie Bass, Group Managing Director, Turning Point

I was referred to EquityFD by one of our advisers as I needed to supplement my senior team with some new finance hires.

Robert was very engaged with my requirements from the start, running a smooth, informed and attentive process resulting in two key appointments in swift order.

He really understood the nature of a rapidly expanding business and was able to match my requirements for candidates with an appetite for high growth and an ability to function effectively in such a dynamic environment.

Amanda Davis, Group Finance Director, Independent Vetcare Group

I worked with EquityFD to source a CFO for a new investment we were making. Given their understanding of the PE market, they were happy to work alongside us on a fully success basis and identified a great candidate ahead of the deal completing which was extremely helpful to the process.

Rupert Brown, Investment Manager, Palatine Private Equity

If you are considering appointing Equity FD, I strongly recommend that you prepare to be challenged. I thought that we had a tight brief on the way in, but Equity FD challenged every aspect of our initial thinking, which resulted in a pin-sharp brief followed by a speedy appointment of a Group FD.

If you are ready to be challenged and want to move quickly, I would recommend Equity FD without hesitation.

Steve Jude, CEO, Citibase

I enjoy working with EquityFD. They are responsive and flexible, and work swiftly to conclude the recruitment process. Most importantly, they take the time to listen and understand our requirements. Joanna has been my main contact and she most recently sourced a new Finance Director for our investee company Weirdfish.

She innately understands the skills required for an FD in a growth and exit driven business and takes the time to ensure that there is also a strong cultural fit with the rest of the management team.

Natalie Eastham, Managing Partner, Total Capital Partners

I chose to work with the team at EquityFC  and EquityFD to help to source  my new Finance Director .

They did a great job of giving me and my other directors a real choice enabling us to make a well thought through decision about this key hire .

Thank you Paul  for an excellent search.

Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela, CEO and Founder, Alva

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.

Dave Mehzer, CEO, London Doctors Clinics

I was introduced to Equity FD by our Chairman and worked with Robert to source a new Chief Operations Officer for our Team.  Robert was a responsive and engaged Partner on this assignment and succeeded in securing our new Chief Operations Officer who is a great asset for the business.
