Working at FD Capital Recruitment

What we do

FD Capital is an industry leader, revolutionising the way companies can access financial executives on terms that work for their business. Our curated approach to recruitment puts the client at its heart, matching them with candidates who complete the puzzle of their organisation.

We’re sharing the ‘FD Capital Difference’ that has allowed our organisation to grow from its base in Great Portland Street to connect with clients across the UK and beyond.

FD Capital has built an industry-leading reputation as a niche recruitment boutique specialising in FDs and CFOs. Our talent pool and expertise extend to every aspect of business management with specialist knowledge in several key areas.

Debt Refinancing

The current financial turbulence is changing the economic situation that start-ups and SMEs find themselves in. Debt refinancing and debt raising fall under the responsibilities of a CFO. Our portfolio of talent includes financial executives with extensive experience in fundraising, including from commercial lenders.

Several members of the FD Capital team have experience working as bank managers, giving them a unique insight into debt raising. Their experience extends to distressed lending and refinancing.

Equity Raising

The FD Capital team has experience across all manner of fundraising, including seed stage and Series A fundraising. Most start-ups and SaaS companies don’t require a full-time CFO or have the budget to accommodate one. Companies with a revenue of less than £5 million can find that a part-time CFO is a better match for their needs.

Fundraising can feel like an uphill battle for start-ups and SaaS businesses. It’s made even harder for CEOs and teams who don’t have experience within the financial sector. Our CFOs are experts in equity raising, having established close ties with financial institutions, PE houses, and private investors.

Having a CFO on board can streamline the process and makes PE houses and investors more likely to be interested in your company. A CFO adds credibility to your organisation with financial institutions being more likely to lend money when they believe the right risk management measures are in place.

Digital Natives

Technology plays a vital role in assisting CFOs with every aspect of their work. Accounting software is crucial to give CFOs data-driven insights into the company’s operational standing and its cashflow. Our team are digital natives who understand the importance of investing in technology and financial systems for real-time insights.

One of the first moves our CFOs make is to invest in a tech stack. The technology they choose creates efficient systems that make analysis, risk management, and operations easier.

Most CFOs will choose to prepare for fundraising rounds and scaling by investing in technology and software to streamline accounting and efficiency.
