Group Finance Director vacancy in Surrey

The Brief

Grafton Banks Finance was asked by the CEO of a global £20m turnover company in Surrey to implement a recruitment campaign to find a Group Finance Director.

The CEO needed a strategic senior finance professional to work closely with him and the Board, to grow the business from £20 to £100m turnover over the next five years.

The candidate would also need to be able to demonstrate proven capability in reviewing, negotiating and managing complex, long term commercial business to business contracts.

Grafton Banks' campaign included advertising, networking and headhunting for the most relevant finance professionals in the market, as well as sourcing candidates from their own database.

A shortlist of five relevant CVs was submitted and two candidates out of the five were asked to attend an interview.

One of these candidates was asked back for a final stage interview and was subsequently offered the position.

The whole process was completed within a period of three weeks.

The Result

Both the client and the candidate were very pleased with the result. The client was particularly impressed with both the relevance of the CVs received and the speed and efficiency of how the process was managed.

The candidate made the following comment on the service he received:

"I have always held in high regard the way my consultant and his team at Grafton Banks conducts business, as since I've known him he has always practised the values of tenacity, honesty, creativity and professionalism.

The business style is a perfect blend of technology and social media, combined with old-school networking and understanding his clients and candidates requirements. I highly recommend working with Grafton Banks, and I look forward to continuing doing so for many more years".
