Finatal set the standard on how recruitment should work. From our first meeting, Finatal took time to understand my skill set, personality and ambitions and then discuss roles that would fit those criteria. Where they were unsure, we’d review the gaps and agree if applying was suitable. Throughout the process of applying to accepting a role, the communication from the team was outstanding. Good news, no news or disappointing news, they provided regular updates and feedback on all relevant live opportunities.
Finatal has both placed me in a role and then followed that with the rapid deployment of an interim team to support me. Very straightforward to deal with and, as needed in many challenging interim assignments, demonstrated an ability to move quickly and effectively. Looking forward to working with them in the future.
Finatal has both had the pleasure of both placing me in an interim role and providing me with further candidates for roles. I have found them to be utterly professional, diligent and incredibly attentive in all our dealings and have no hesitation in recommending them to other interim candidates and organisations seeking such candidates.
Finatal has great knowledge of the sector and a wide range of contacts. They were proactive and energetic in seeking out suitable opportunities, and provided useful feedback at all stages. Highly recommended!
I worked with Finatal for a senior-level CFO/Transformation contract role and their ability to ‘get what was required’ meant the process was quick and painless and the result delivered was better than expected. Thanks, Finatal!
It's been a real pleasure working with Finatal. They helped me secure a contract which was exactly what I was looking for. The whole process of recruitment from start to finish was pleasant, they were transparent and answered any questions I had promptly.
Finatal recently helped me secure a financial modelling project. I really appreciated their openness and honesty about the role and the speed at which it was finalised. They kept in touch throughout the assignment and showed a real interest in making sure everything was going smoothly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Finatal's services in the future.
Finatal helped to find me a role, making it a painless process. They listened to what I was looking for, and more importantly kept up regular communication, so I always knew where the process was at. I would absolutely recommend Finatal to any friends seeking a new role or hire and will most certainly be using them to place candidates in the future. I look forward to working with Finatal on the other side, the service received as a candidate gives me extremely high hopes for what I can look forward to as a client.
“We have used Finatal recently to fill both contract and full time roles. The trickiest role to fill was securing a high calibre Group Financial Controller to support our fast expanding and maturing business. The search included presenting candidates in the UK and within Benelux over a 4 month period. I was very impressed by the team’s tenacity and perseverance to find the right candidate for our business.”
“Finatal has been helping me find high calibre talent for the last 3 years. At Livingbridge, I support our investment evolve their data capabilities. With every data project, there is a need to find talent that either complements or starts an investee's data journey. Finatal has helped me place talented individuals across the analytic, data engineering and FP&A roles spectrum. What sets Finatal apart, is the consultants’ ability to understand the type of characters we need in an organisation, characters that help compliment or build on an existing culture."
"I've worked with 8 different recruitment agencies during my tenure with Fresha, but once I started working with Finatal's Data & Analytics team, I stopped working with anybody else. Finatal is an admirable leader in the data & tech recruitment; they really understand client requirements at a level other recruiters only pretend to, they demonstrate exceptional salesmanship and candidate relationship management, and will always hold themselves to their word. Finatal were a pivotal force in enabling Fresha to triple its analytics team in less than a year."
"Finatal have been extremely efficient to work with. They've been very responsive, professional and easy to deal with. Looking forward to working with them more in the future."
"Finatal completely grasped our recruitment needs and acted swiftly to produce a candidate shortlist. The entire process was seamless and Finatal kept me regularly updated on all aspects, resulting in a rapid and ideal hire for the role."
"I have been working with Finatal for over 5 years and I can’t recommend them enough. Their professionalism and manner is a joy and I really trust their opinion on market rates and pace. If I have recruitment needs, my first call is always Finatal!"
"We have worked with Finatal for a number of years, engaging them to help us with both interim and permanent CFO and FD hires across our portfolio. We recently backed a new business in the cybersecurity space, Adarma, based in Edinburgh, and hired an interim CFO through Finatal. They did a great job guiding the candidate through the process and we are delighted to have the candidate on board."
"I have recently worked with Finatal to fill a number of key hires in my finance team including a Group Finance Controller. I was extremely impressed with Finatal’s ability to quickly source a shortlist of highly suitable candidates. I also appreciated having Finatal’s view on the best person for the role and luckily, we were in agreement on each role. Finatal closed the successful candidate quickly and in line with my remuneration expectations for each role."
"Finatal were introduced to me last year through our backers, Bridges. They successfully sourced an FD for The Vet, who joined us six months ago and has so far been an invaluable support. I was really impressed with how quickly Finatal understood our business and the type of person that I was looking for. They were proactive, moved at pace, kept me well-informed and was a pleasure to work with. They're the only company I’d call next time I was making a senior hire in the finance function."
"From a candidate perspective the process was swift, efficient and focused. The consultants have the ability to rapidly match a client’s specific profile requirements with suitably experienced candidates, whilst also ensuring that there’s a strong cultural fit. I would highly recommend Finatal when recruiting into a PE backed environment."
"I’ve engaged with Finatal twice in the last year for FD within our portfolio and been very impressed with the outcomes on both occasions; Finatal get what a good private equity FD looks like and have a very good understanding of the kind of FDs we at August like to work with. They have been tenacious, proactive, and delivered strong shortlists for two very different briefs, and we’ve been really happy with the finance Directors we’ve hired and the value they’ve delivered so far."
We engaged Finatal to help us find an interim CFO to fill a gap between permanent appointments. Finatal were quick to come back with an available, relevant shortlist of serial interim CFOs. It meant that we were quickly able to identify someone whom we felt would be best suited to the role. This person came in and hit the ground running and added value from day one. Highly recommended.
"We have worked with the Finatal team for some years now, and introduced them to a recent addition to our portfolio, Cubelogic, a fast-growing international risk management software business, with the remit to bring in a CFO to help deliver on their growth plans. Finatal ran a great process, and quickly grasped the brief of what the business needed and what would work with the CEO and broader management team. They challenged our thinking and provided a high quality range of shortlisted candidates. Our new CFO was a first-time CFO but with an excellent pedigree in recurring revenue, data-driven, international businesses, and has fitted in seamlessly with the team and made a great impact thus far."
Following private equity investment, we realigned our company strategy to grow on a buy and build model. This required the recruitment of an Acquisition & Strategy Manager to work alongside the Finance Director and the wider Executive Team. Finatal were great at understanding the brief and needs of our business. And effectively putting forward candidates that were very relevant. We have ended up with an excellent recruit. Thank you for your support throughout the process.
"I instructed Finatal to source an interim CFO for a key portfolio company which was undergoing preparation for a refinancing and review of the strategic plan. I was delighted with the service I received. The team assembled a range of candidates in a short time-frame, after understanding the brief and what the task in hand was. The interview process was smooth and I found them to be contactable at all times when needed. They were consultative on many regards: the day rate in which we needed to pay to attract the right calibre, the timescales of the interview process, but also on the speed in which we needed to offer given our preferred candidate had already been offered another role. I found the hiring process effective, and would recommend Finatal to others seeking senior interim hires within their finance function."
I have a long-standing relationship with Finatal and I could not recommend them highly enough. They are passionate and delivered a high-quality service on a very technical role. We had a very smooth process with no hidden surprises.
