IS YOUR FINANCE TEAM STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP WITH BUSINESS GROWTH?
As businesses grow, accounting and finance teams can find themselves in a race to keep pace with the increasing volume of tasks that inevitably arise. This can result in inappropriate processes and procedures, poor or untimely management information and little or no time to focus on profitability analysis, forecasting or cash flow.
Artemis Clarke can help you crystallise your recruitment requirements – advising on how you might conduct an audit of the team’s existing skills, abilities, and experience to work out where gaps can be filled by training and support, and where you will need to recruit. In growing businesses, where cash flow is tight and it is difficult to justify a new full time member of the finance team, it may be worth considering using a part time Financial Controller or Finance Director to bridge this gap initially and perhaps use their experience to bring on existing members of staff.
Working together we can define clearly the skills, abilities and experience you require and find candidates whose motivations and personality make them a great match to make a success of your new appointment.
