The business has experienced fantastic levels of success and growth within the business, creating ongoing challenges to ensure that the Financial Reporting and processes are keeping pace with the change.

Rutherford Briant were approached to assist with the recruitment of a new Head of Finance on the recommendation of the companies’ external accountants, who are themselves a valued Rutherford Briant client.
Having met with two of the Company Directors to discuss the initial requirements for what they had in mind, Rutherford Briant were able to consult and provide advice as to the quality of personnel the business required at that time due to their forecast growth and how we could assist with pipelining talent through the business.
Engaged on an exclusive basis, Rutherford Briant went through the process of sourcing and vetting candidates. The shortlist that we presented represented a mix of candidates that were active on our and others who we headhunted for the position who were not actively looking for a new role, but who were an excellent fit for the company and the position. This resulted in an offer being extended within 4 weeks of the initial briefing.
“Working with Rutherford Briant on the assignment of our new Head of Finance position was a great decision. Hunter took the time to meet with us personally in order to understand the demands of the business and cultural environment before providing his consultative services. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone in my network looking to recruit into their finance team.” – Jessica Brown, Director.
