Jo Wilson

After graduation Jo qualified as an Accountant (CIMA) whilst working for Rentokil Initial in the South West Region, Bristol Office. During her time with Rentokil, the business underwent significant transformation. Jo recruited and set up a finance hub that serviced the region - this sparked her passion for recruitment and talent management. Since moving into recruitment Jo’s focus has been predominantly on the finance function, initially with Michael Page Bristol, then as a Manager at Martin Ward Anderson in St Albans. She broadened her experience whilst working for KPMG in their Search & Selection division based in the Birmingham Office covering East Midlands, West Midlands and East Anglia regional offices.

Jo is a multi-sector recruiter with substantial experience resourcing Board Directors, as well as all levels within the finance function and across a range of business sizes from FTSE & AIM listed companies to growth SMEs and VC/PE backed organisations. She has a range of expertise in executive search & resourcing, competency-based interviewing, and selection. 

Jo took a career break to have a family which was extended when her husband took a job in Italy for 6 years. Initially she lived in Modena (home to Balsamic vinegar and Ferrari) and then moved to Milan. During this time Jo learnt Italian (language, wine and cooking) and was fortunate enough to travel throughout Italy and Eastern Europe.   

Jo joined Equity FC to focus on recruiting Divisional Finance Directors, Group Financial Controllers, Heads of FP&A and other senior financial management positions with a particular focus on EquityFC’s larger, more complex clients.
