    Engage Finance

    Deciding whether you need a new finance leader isn’t easy … often you just want to quietly see who is out there and not actually take the leap and significant time-sapping effort/expense of replacing your incumbent – that is good leadership, scanning the horizon for a potentially better option. Nothing wrong with that.

    Your CFO is often the #2 in your organisation – front and centre of key decisions, answering the key questions before you’ve asked them, turning the oceans of data and MI into actionable insight.

    You don’t need to be a technical accountant to know if your CFO is driving the finance agenda forward, you just want to be assured that they understand every nook and cranny of the business, drive the growth agenda and address challenges before they turn into a crisis.

    Many CFOs thrive on adrenaline, not knowing what issues will emerge this week but jumping on urgent tasks in a wide-eyed state of readiness. The very best CFOs skilfully scan the horizon of “incoming”, plan and mobilise their teams on important issues before they become urgent. There is a calmness and ruthless efficiency underpinning their work; things just get done and tasks dissipate away as opposed to the game of “whack-a-mole” that some play.

    CFO’s are expensive. It is orders-of-magnitude more expensive if you don’t have a best fit CFO. The hardest part is often taking that first step – knowing who to trust to start a dialogue. Do you delegate to your HRD to reach out to your go-to agency to start a search – will the agency really understand your issues, will they “get” what you are reaching for. Will they prioritise your search ensuring that any conversations with potential candidates are carefully orchestrated to ensure incumbents are not alerted to potentially being replaced. After all, you may be merely “window shopping” at this stage – the future of your business comes first.

    Oftentimes, a CEO will reach out to us for a confidential discussion on what aspects of their incumbent are concerning them – sometimes their nagging doubt leads to an active search. More often than not, they just want to start a dialogue and build a trusted relationship just in case they have a need one day – that’s a really positive step and a strong indicator of a client/CEO that we would choose to support and partner over the long term.

Our Story

"Spend lavishly on the time and energy you devote to getting in sync, because it’s the best investment you can make."
Ray Dalio

At The Engage Partnership we understand recruitment is never as straightforward as it may seem. Hiring managers face a multitude of emotions, pressures and stresses when hiring and, more often than not, it’s the impact on their time which is most affected.

Done properly, a well-structured, tailored recruitment process allows hiring managers this time back so that growing their teams can run “in sync” with the day-to-day tasks their role demands.

We put the effort in upfront to get in sync with our clients, enabling the strong foundations for a successful recruitment process and a trusted long-term partnership.

Importantly, to us partnership is more than just a word in our company name. People are at the heart of everything we do day in, day out and we believe that working in partnership is essential and that building great, lasting relationships is what makes a business great.

We’re proud to strive to be “in sync” with everyone we work with externally and internally, and this desire, along with our core values, is at the very core of our DNA as a business - they’re what keep us moving forward (and what keep us HIPP):

Honesty - there are no secrets or hidden surprises with us, both internally with each other and externally with our clients and candidates.

Innovation - it’s about moving with the times and making sure we’re doing everything we can to deliver for our people. We’re constantly moving forward so we don’t get left behind.

Professionalism - we focus on treating everyone we engage with the level of respect and professionalism we ourselves would expect to receive. Anything less than this won’t work for us.

Partnerships - it’s why we’re here; to build brilliant, lasting partnerships. Creating ongoing relationships and consistently adding value is what drives us.

The way we work reflects our HIPP values and our offices have purposely been set up in the style of an open plan, tech start-up environment. This encourages engagement, communication and promotes a fun and relaxed environment.

Whether you’re a growing business looking to hire, you’re looking for your next career move, you’re interested in joining us or you’re just here for a nose around, if any of the above resonates with you then we’d love to hear from you.
