Finance recruitment that will transform your bottom line

Finance & Accounting

Stott and May’s Finance and Accounting practice has developed a reputation for understanding what commercial businesses need to control and deliver growth. Truly understanding the markets we operate in enables us to add value to both candidates and clients. We offer an executive search level service delivered against aggressive timescales which are more synonymous with contingent recruitment. As a result, we remove the barriers that stand in the way of enabling you to drive your business forward. At Stott and May we help clients build out finance functions from the top down or the bottom up. Whether you are an established tech organisation looking to take the next step in your business, or a high growth disruptive start-up intent on international expansion we are best placed to assist. We are 100% results focused. Our delivery model gives our clients complete confidence, we leave nothing to chance in identifying the very highest level of talent.

Here's why clients typically engage with our Finance & Accounting practice:

  • You need to scale a finance team quickly to satisfy Company, Venture Capitalist or Private Equity growth demands.
  • You are at a critical stage of business transformation and can’t afford a bad hire.
  • You need a clear understanding of salary benchmarks for new and existing roles.
  • You need a commercial finance function capable of driving strategic decisions.
  • You’re spending too much time sourcing and attracting candidates that meet your desired profile.
  • You are fed up dealing with multiple contacts from faceless agencies who simply don’t understand your business.
