Fractional CFO

Fractional CFO

Do you want to scale your business without committing to hiring a full-time CFO? You want to consider hiring a fractional CFO. Whether you’re a start-up or an SME, hiring a fractional CFO can help you get control of your finances, create a long-term strategy, or prepare for fundraising opportunities.

At FD Capital, we have a wealth of candidates available to work on a fractional or part-time basis. These candidates can work within your organisation on a schedule that works for your organisation, whether it’s a few days a week or a few days a month. We pride ourselves on matching candidates with the specific needs of organisations to help them get the most out of their fractional CFO.

Every business will have its own reasons for wanting to hire a fractional CFO. You might be considering exploring VC fundraising or your company might need a systems overhaul. Read on to find out more about the benefits of hiring a CFO and how FD Capital can help you find the candidate that ticks all the boxes.

The benefits of hiring a fractional CFO

The main perk of hiring a fractional CFO is that it’s the most cost-effective option for start-ups and small-to-medium businesses. You can choose to hire a fractional CFO on a contract that works for your business’ finances.

When you choose to hire a fractional CFO, you can take advantage of their expertise and skillsets. Most fractional CFOs have transitioned from a traditional leadership role to freelancing, allowing them to share their knowledge and expertise with smaller organisations.

A CFO is a key part of your leadership team, and they interact with every stakeholder in your business. Hiring a CFO as you start to scale your business can give you credibility with auditors, brokers, lenders, and venture capitalists.

Your fractional CFO will come to you with the contacts and partners that they’ve made throughout their careers. They’ll also look at your business, strategy, and long-term plan with a fresh perspective. Even though they work on a part-time basis, fractional CFOs are still committed to your business and may work for you for several years or even transition to working full time as your business grows.

When you choose to hire a fractional CFO, you have the freedom to change their contract to work with the needs of your business. As you start to grow, your fractional CFO may start working on a more regular basis to meet the needs of your business.

Hiring a fractional CFO for your business


Choosing to hire a fractional CFO could unlock the potential of your business. Before you start the recruitment process, you want to set out a timeline to ensure everyone is on the right page. As a CFO is a leadership role within your organisation, you want to make sure you find the right candidate and bring them on board at a time that works for your business.

It’s a great idea to incorporate deadlines into this timeline, including when you want to start interviewing candidates and when you want to have a shortlist of candidates. At FD Capital, we’re here to help you throughout the recruitment process by giving you a shortlist of candidates that are ideal for your business.

Along with fractional CFOs, we’re here to help you hire interim and full-time CFOs. You can find out more about our fractional CFO recruitment services by contacting us at 020 3287 9501.
