Head of Finance Recruitment
I’m delighted to be spearheading the Trapeze Finance division arm, offering permanent, contract & interim Accounting & Finance recruitment solutions.
With 15 years’ recruitment experience in this sector, I feel perfectly placed to support clients and candidates with hiring needs and job search requirements. I enjoy nothing more than “looking under the car bonnet” of a business, enabling me to genuinely partner with clients to secure top talent.
I can quickly assess your current staffing situation & give practical suggestions as to how to positively impact your existing set-up.
We tailor every campaign we work on with a consultative and collaborative approach. The following scenarios will give you an idea of some of the recruitment solutions we’ve delivered.
Creating a Finance function from scratch for SME retail company (30 employees)
CEO was using an outsourced Accountancy practice (annual returns, management reports & payroll) & Office Manager for day to day tasks, which impacted on her other duties meaning suppliers were being paid late & cashflow was sporadic and unpredictable.
We sourced a Financial Controller, who amongst other savings, brought the payroll in-house.
- More favourable terms negotiated with suppliers
- Increase in profit margins of C23% after implementing cost cutting measures & new management reports
- Expansion plans scaled up and funded with increased revenue & less need for funding from other sources
Interim FD hired for 3 months to support funding round activity for tech start-up (50 employees)
COO needed support in preparing funding paperwork.
Trapeze found an experienced interim FD with extensive & relevant knowledge.
- Funding was secured & new processes were embedded to future-proof the business in terms of statutory reporting requirements.
- Accounting software was implemented at a greatly reduced cost due to FD’s existing contacts.
- A permanent Finance Manager was hired & FD provided comprehensive training.
