I trained as an Accountant, an articled clerk for 5 years, then when qualified moved into the private sector initially as a Group Financial Controller then after 6 years as that as Finance Director for a PLC in Preston Lancashire. I setup my own businesses in 2004 and had 12 happy years building these up, which is how allthebizz.com and indexplex.com came to be.
I sold the last of these businesses back in 2016 and after 2 years as a Group Finance Director I returned to the more entrepreneurial Portfolio FD roles. I setup my own recruitment business and specialist provider of FD’s called FD Capital Recruitment which is where I now work a few days per week.
It is a great combination for me, driving the sales of a business whilst being a Chartered Accountant and doing some SEO along the way to drive traffic and leads. Hopefully these are the areas that I am best at, so it makes perfect sense that I am focussed onto a role that combines alll of these together.
FD Capital are based in Great Portland Street London and we specialise in the recruitment of Finance Directors both Part-Time and Full Time to serve mostly London based businesses but nationally also.
Formed in 2018 FD Capital Recruitment was founded with the objective of becoming a leading provider of Part-Time Finance Directors, our idea being to bring the skills and experience that finance directors have gained in larger corporates and plc’s and make them available to SME’s on fractional time basis. We have grown and grown and had our busiest year so far in 2020 with some of our team working six days per week.
We operate across the London and south east and West Midlands areas, our ambition is to grow the business to a national operation. Our team is made up of finance professional and experienced recruiters who between them have an extensive network of FD’s and CEO with a strong database of companies we have connections within.
