Recruiting a Finance Director for an SME

The MD came to Benjamin Edwards after we had previously placed several marketing staff with them.  They needed someone who could run the business both financially and operationally in the MD’s absence. Benjamin Edwards create a company pack to brief the candidates prior to interview, fully vetted (qualification, ID and anti-money laundering checks) and assisted the MD with writing a full job description and advert. We organised for all candidates to sign a non-disclosure agreement.  We set to work sourcing our local contacts as well as headhunting. We recruited a locally qualified senior financial professional who had the enthusiasm drive and background to help secure and grow the business.

note: All senior candidates who would be responsible for the finances or the running of a business are thoroughly checked out on Creditsafe. We also check IDs and qualifications as well as thorough referencing.

From the initial meeting through to each successful conclusion Claire has been delightful to work with. She is a great listener, goes to the crux of what is required and seems to have a magic approach to sourcing candidates, even in a really hard to fill position such as law. Her experience and creativity really put her apart from any other recruitment solution I have ever used
