Finance Director Services
Many of the FD Capital leadership team have over 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry, completing hundreds of successful placements. We have a wide talent pool of potential FD candidates to recommend and short list. Our financial directors have a range of specialisms, from engaging with private investors to implementing digital enterprise investment.
Whether it’s financial restructuring or overseeing private equity investment, our specialist FDs are on hand to take your company to the next level. The first step of the recruitment process is to determine what type of CFO who organisation needs. Our recruiters will work with you to identify any existing skills gap and the experience you need from an FD.
Many of our financial executives operate as portfolio FDs. They work with several clients on a part-time basis, often having experience in a variety of industries or specialising within a niche. Our portfolio FDs are available on hourly contracts, working either in-house or remotely. We’re making it more accessible for start-ups and SMEs to access industry-leading talent through our portfolio FDs.
Recruiting an FD provides your company with credibility for private investors, boosting your chances of a successful fundraising strategy. Our private equity FDs have a proven track record of working with venture capital, angel investors, and private equity houses. An FD can fill the skills gap of a CEO without previous fundraising experience.
At FD Capital, many of the FDs in our talent pool come from a private equity background or have extensive experience in the field. We’re uniquely positioned to provide access to the industry’s leading FDs and private equity experts.
We can connect your company with an FD who has a portfolio of delivering Series A and seed funding. Our roster of clients also includes FDs with experience working on successful IPOs and AIM listings.
If your company is funded by private equity or exploring the potential of private investors, you need an FD to support your C-suite and engage with stakeholders.
An interim FD is a cost-effective solution for short-term projects or to cover paternity, sickness, or career leave for an existing FD or financial executive. You can recruit an interim FD with a specific focus in mind, from debt refinancing to managing an exit strategy. Our interim FDs are available to work on a part-time, full-time, and remote basis.
Transformation and Change FD
Recruiting an FD is a way of investing in the future of your company by promoting transformation and change. These financial directors are recruited to drive growth or change the fortunes of struggling companies. Our FD recruiters will work with you to identify your company’s priorities and identify the best-suited candidate to transform and change your organisation.
Hiring a transformation and change FD can enable your CEO and leadership team to focus on the day-to-day running of the company, while the FD manages its long-term strategy.
Bilingual FD or CFO
Most of our Financial Directors are based in London and available to work both in-house and remotely, as well as hybrid, providing full flexibility. FD Capital is based in Great Portland Street in London with a wide network of financial professionals throughout the capital.
London Interim FD
An interim London FD can help to stabilise your organisation during times of economic upheaval and to oversee specific projects, including financial restructuring and private equity engagement. Recruiting a Financial Director on an interim basis provides flexibility, along with credibility for your organisation with private investors and traditional financial institutions.
You don’t need to be a multi-national organisation to recruit an FD in London. Dozens of our financial executives are available to work on a part-time or fractional basis for London companies.

Oxford FD Recruitment
FD Capital is Oxford’s leading recruitment agency for senior financial executives. Most of our Oxford Finance Directors are ACA/FCA (ICAEW) qualified accountants. Many of them are available to work in-house or remotely with immediate starts. Our Oxford FDs are available to work on a part-time, interim, or full-time basis.
The changing role of Financial Directors makes them a vital part of any company’s leadership team. Oxford is one of the UK’s main business hubs in the UK with a diverse range of industries spread across the region.
A part-time Finance Director is more financially viable for start-ups and SMEs in the Oxford area. It provides the flexibility to develop the position as your company grows. Start-ups and SMEs typically don’t have a large enough workload for a full-time position, making a part-time FD the best of both worlds.
Almost every industry is making the move to digital. An e-commerce FD has experience working across departments to deliver a cohesive financial strategy that accounts for consumer behaviour and technological trends. A financial director will implement forecasting, use MS Power BI, real-time data analysing, and KPIs that enable your company to track its development and prevent unnecessary spending.
A non-executive Finance Director has experience across a variety of departments, including commercial, general management, and operations skills. These financial executives have soft skills that make them ideal for acting as leaders within SMEs, allowing them to implement and analyse their financial strategy
Your company doesn’t have to be public to afford a Finance Director. Investing in a Finance Director adds value to your company, whether it’s on a full-time or part-time basis.
FD Capital is committed to making Finance Directors more accessible for start-ups and SMEs by promoting part-time positions with portfolio and specialist FDs. A part-time CFO is an affordable option to grow your business without a long-term contractual obligation or the financial burden of a full-time leadership position.
