Chief Financial Officers in Guildford

One of the best investments you can make for your business is recruiting a CFO. They’re the second-in-command to the CEO, offering a fresh perspective on its financial position, and filling a skills gap. Today’s CFOs are coming from a variety of backgrounds, including less traditional non-accounting backgrounds.

CFOs are becoming more accessible for start-ups and SMEs as many are moving away from full-time contracts. FD Capital actively recruits part-time and remote CFOs, lowering the threshold to make it more financially viable for companies to benefit from the experience of a CFO.

Our talent pool includes senior financial professionals who are available to work on a remote or part-time basis, including for fixed terms contracts. We’ll work to connect you with a candidate who has the skills, experience, and network to develop your company’s short and long-term strategies. Many of our talent pool specialise in rapid growth situations, fundraising, and mergers and acquisitions.

Companies at every stage of their development cycle are recruiting CFOs to navigate the current economic uncertainty, engage with investors, and develop supply chain resilience.

FD Capital works closely with our talent pool to nurture their career progression while connecting them with companies that require their expertise. We curate the recruitment process to meet the needs of both clients and candidates. It’s our goal to recruit candidates who will fit into the company’s culture and understand its over-arching mission.

Why Your Guildford Company Needs a CFO

CFOs are the partners a modern CEO relies on. They interact with every aspect of the company, from building supply chain resilience to adding credibility when engaging with financial institutions. A CFO who invests in technology will be able to provide real-time insight into forecasting, trends, and analysis.

Recruiting a CFO is an essential step when preparing your company for transition or when navigating economic uncertainty. The cost-of-living crisis and current geo-political situation make it an ideal time to appoint a CFO on a part-time or full-time basis.

Our portfolio of Guildford-based CFOs has a wide range of experience, from managing exit strategies to overseeing fundraising efforts, providing a 360-degree role. Recruiting a CFO is an investment that pays for itself by enabling your company to become more efficient, profitable, and productive.
