The Challenges you Face

Finding an outstanding CFO, who has excellent communication skills, wider people skills, a commercial understanding of the business, its markets and customers and has the ability to support and challenge the CEO is a difficult find.

The role of the CFO is rapidly evolving and expanding in scope, and during the current uncertain times we are facing the role of the CFO is becoming significantly more challenging and important, and so attracting and selecting the right Finance talent for the future is key.

Traditional recruitment methods can suck up resources with a knock-on effect of failing to meet targets and stifling growth plans.

A CFO is crucial in managing: risk, relationships with investors and internal relationships with key operational managers.

It’s estimated that making the wrong senior appointment will cost up to 2.5 X salary, which means that a CFO with a salary of £100,000 can cost a business more than £250,000.

You also have to consider the reputational damage, reduction in productivity, disruption of company culture and loss in confidence of staff, colleagues and shareholders.

A recent McKinsey survey shows that the CFO’s role is rapidly evolving and expanding in scope, requiring new capabilities and demanding great collaboration with C-suite peers.
