Multiple Part-Qualified Level Finance Recruitment

During the past six years Grafton Banks Finance has worked closely with a growing East Sussex based SME. During this time the company experienced exceptional growth and we have sourced numerous finance staff to facilitate their expansion.

The Brief

We met with the Financial Controller, who outlined the company plans to restructure the finance team by centralising three positions to the East Sussex head office. The Head of FP&A required two Part Qualified Finance Analysts and one Senior Finance Analyst to join his team. The recruitment of these positions would be staggered to assist with on-boarding and to ensure a smooth transitional process for each of the roles.

The two Finance Analyst positions required CIMA / ACCA part qualified accountants with strong Excel skills, experience in completing monthly/quarterly /yearly reporting, analysis and related presentations, sales reporting, product analysis and competitor analysis.

The Senior Finance Analyst post required a Finalist level CIMA / ACCA accountant who will be tasked with providing support and analysis to the Head of Management Information and Head of Financial Planning & Analysis. The selected candidate will prepare and distribute monthly management reports and provide ongoing financial support to budget holders.

The Result

Grafton Banks sourced three successful via headhunting, direct advertising and by contacting existing registered candidates. The client interviewed 2 to 3 candidates per job and successful candidates were offered the role within days of an initial meeting. With the assistance of an Interim Finance Specialist (also placed by Grafton Banks Finance), the positions were successfully relocated to East Sussex. The client was highly satisfied with the smooth and effective level of transition throughout the recruitment process.

"I have successfully recruited 4 people via Grafton Banks Finance and during this process I never received a CV that was not appropriate for the role. If this is not a perfect example of understanding the requirements and sourcing relevant and suitable candidates, then I don't know what is. Some agencies will call you far too often and some will just send you CVs out of the blue. With Grafton Banks Finance, I was only contacted when there was something to discuss and have never been sent any CVs out of the blue. Another example of the great service that Grafton Banks Finance offers. The fact that I never had any issues or questions is testament to the service I received from my Consultant. I wouldn't hesitate to use Grafton Banks Finance again."
