Financial Recruitment in Bath

Business in Bath & The Surrounding Area

As a business owner based in Bath, you will already know that this beautiful city is a great location to expand. The pull of the city and the talent available in Bath gives any business a head start when it comes to growing. You know that the right people are out there, but where do you begin when it comes to financial recruitment in Bath?

Whether you are looking for a Finance Director, a Head of Finance or even need to consider the future format of your finance team, Artemis Clarke can help.

Bath, with a growing population of over 100,000, occupies a unique geographical location: within easy reach of the bigger cites of London and Bristol, yet minutes away from the glorious countryside surrounding the city and with the River Avon dissecting the city. Bath, a UNESCO city thanks to its beautiful buildings, has always been popular with both academics, creatives and tourists who all appreciate the architecture and elegance offered by this thriving city.

Bath has long been associated with forward thinking people and organisations – the discovery in Bath of the planet Uranus in 1781 by William Herschel using a home-made telescope in his back garden speaks volumes of the pioneering spirit of Bath.

Thanks to the beautiful Georgian architecture, Bath has long been favoured as a filming location for film and television – from Les Miserables to Inspector Morse, tourists and locals alike have much to admire and recognise on the big, and small screen.

The two internationally renowned universities in Bath contribute to the growth of the City, in terms of both population and an ever growing number of fresh business ideas such as the innovative company, Naturbeads which was formed as a result of research at the University of Bath. Their work creating a plastic free alternative to microbeads saves large amounts of microplastic from entering the natural environment.

The businesses of Bath will always find it easy to attract talent to such a special location, but finding the right finance team takes specialist expertise. That’s where we come in; helping your business to grow with the right finance team in place.

How Artemis Clarke can help

With our network of fully vetted, experienced Finance Directors we can usually source a part-time or interim FD or CFO within a tight timeframe if the need is urgent. If you are a growing business in Bath looking to recruit your first in-house Head of Finance or Finance Director, then we use our Executive Search Process to source the perfect candidate.

FDs can be recruited on a full or part-time basis; if you are a business with turnover of less than £20m we recommend considering the part-time FD option first. If you already have a competent finance team in place, a PTFD can provide all the benefits of an expert full-time FD at a fraction of the cost. You can choose whether you recruit them in-house on a salary or via Artemis Clarke on a day rate.

You may need a part-time FD to oversee a specific project, to put in place some systems and controls, or to build or mentor an effective finance team within your business. They may stay with you for months or even years, delivering high level strategic oversight to help your business scale and meet its growth objectives. Over time they could also become your in-house full-time Finance Director as your business grows and your requirements for their expertise increases.
