Multiple Interim Finance Recruitment in Sussex

The Brief

These changes included the creation of a shared service function and the moving of the business's US finance function in to the UK.

  • Multiple interim Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable staff

The Result

Grafton Banks Finance continues to act as the partner of choice for interim finance needs for this business.

"Grafton Banks Finance is particularly adept at understanding the key technical and personal skills required by the specification. They propose a select number of candidates by utilising their contacts to meet the criteria, in contrast to the competition that provided a list of candidates 'currently available' whether meeting or not meeting the criteria. Contact is kept to a minimum as and when required, which maximises efficiency on both parties. They deal with any problems that may arise in an open and honest manner. I would thoroughly recommend them."
