I have known EquityFD and EquityFC for some while and was introduced to Dani by Robert Draper when I needed to recruit a Financial Controller for Apollo World Touring. I introduced the team to the CFO I was supporting who was comfortable to go ahead and engage. Robert initially and then Dani supported us through the process and then did exactly what they said they would and found us three sets of candidates. Through the process they supported both Apollo and the candidates to ensure that a great match was made. We are now nearly three months into our time with our new FC and both Apollo and the new FC are happy. 

Much gratitude to Dani for her approach through the process, for producing a great candidate range for interview, for listening to our feedback and producing a further set of even more relevant candidates and for helping Apollo make a fantastic hire. Simple; world class.

I was referred to EquityFC by one of my colleagues as I needed to source a senior hire in one of our investee businesses.

I dealt with Sarah initially and then Jo Wilson who was very knowledgeable about the role and the recruitment process which she guided both me and the CFO of the business through seamlessly .

We’ve made a great hire and would certainly look to work with EquityFC and Equity FD in the future.

Tim Lewis, Director, Caledonia Private Capital

I had originally come across EquityFD having been referred into Robert Draper when I was in the process of looking for a new position a few years ago.  On the back of that, I have now used EquityFC to fill two controller roles in my last two businesses.  Given the specialist focus of the firm, they always have a good sense of what is “market” for the role, and have very good coverage of the candidates in the market at any one time.  I’ve been very pleased with the level of service provided both times I’ve used them.

Jo Wilson at EquityFC worked tirelessly to recruit my European Financial Controller. She was a committed partner through a long process always available to take feedback and offer advice and this has resulted in an important hire being made into my team.

I was introduced to EquityFC by a mutual contact and set about a fast paced  hiring plan to source a new Head of Finance to report to me.

Daniella worked in partnership with me throughout the process and we made excellent progress quickly, resulting in a really fantastic addition for me and the business.

I worked closely with Jo Wilson at EquityFC to help me to hire a new number two to me.

Jo ran a thorough and intelligent process and I have made a great addition to the team.

Thank you Jo!

As Crossword Cybersecurity plc moved from early start up to growth stage, we decided to recruit a full time Finance Director. EquityFD was recommended by one of our investors. Sarah and her team did an excellent job of understanding and shaping our requirements with their deep expertise in this specialist area, putting forward a strong shortlist of vetted candidates and helping us select the ideal FD for Crossword.

I have worked with EquityFD and EquityFC previously so instructed them again when sourcing a new Financial Controller for XLN.

Paul was very selective in who he sent me to interview enabling me to make an informed choice and hire an excellent calibre new team member.

Neil Conaghan, CFO, XLN

I have known EquityFD and EquityFC for over 15 years, and they have  successfully helped on a number of roles. I recently asked them to help me find a new Head of finance/ FD for a primary care business I have joined as CEO.

I choose to work with them  due to their ability to understand business needs and provide candidates with the right qualities and skills, normally on relatively short notice from their well developed network.

They were able to provide a good shortlist of candidates and ultimately a great hire very quickly which is a real benefit in a rapidly growing business.

Dave Mehzer, CEO, London Doctors Clinics

I chose to work with the team at EquityFC  and EquityFD to help to source  my new Finance Director .

They did a great job of giving me and my other directors a real choice enabling us to make a well thought through decision about this key hire .

Thank you Paul  for an excellent search.
