Urgent need for a senior Financial Controller sorted

Benjamin Edwards was approached by this well recognised Lincolnshire business to act as recruitment partner for its commercial accounting and finance requirements, and in particular its urgent need for a senior financial controller.

Building a reputation leads to recruiting the entire finance team

The senior financial controller role was a very technical role and required specific tax and reporting skills that would only be found by someone who has previously worked for a corporate.  Benjamin Edwards not only successfully sourced and placed this individual but then went on to place several more part qualified and qualified accountants within the business. We drew up a comprehensive hiring strategy which was signed off and ensured a quick and efficient process.

Recruiting for a Finance Manager “I recently worked with Claire at Benjamin Edwards when we needed to recruit a Finance Manager due to business expansion. We spent time detailing the vacancy and the type of person we were looking for to fit in with the rest of the team, and Claire was quickly able to suggest a number of candidates for consideration. Most of those put forward were a great match for our business, and I was impressed by how well Claire had understood both our requirement and the candidates she was representing. Following further discussions on the suitability and experience of the individuals concerned, we were quickly able to identify a short-list of candidates for interview, all of which were more than capable of successfully undertaking the role we had available. Thanks to Claire’s input in identifying and selecting candidates, we were able to appoint the most suitable person for our specific role. Based on this success, we will definitely use Benjamin Edwards again in the future.”
