Finance

Experienced Finance Directors are ideally placed to understand the needs of clients looking for finance professionals. Helping a business clarify the real requirements of a role, understanding the cultural fit and advising on the correct selection criteria are second nature to us - full time, part time, permanent or temporary.

Supported by our FDs, who have run finance teams in the SME, Corporate and charity sectors, our consultants focus on specific areas of the finance function and between them they can recruit for every role in your team. Whether you want a Finance Director or Financial Controller, a Finance Business Partner or a Business Analyst, a Management Accountant or a Finance Manager, a Credit Control Manager or a Payroll Assistant, one of our Consultants will find you the right candidate

And not just permanent staff.  If you need a finance professional, senior or junior, for maternity cover, project analysis and delivery, acquisition, integration or cashflow management, we can help there too.


Advice for Clients

Invest in the best people you can afford.  Even amongst junior staff. Especially amongst junior staff!  They underpin the whole of your finance function and provide the controls that instil confidence in the team.

And make sure you have the right people doing the right jobs.  Don’t get hung up on job titles.  We can help you with differences between a Finance Director and a Financial Controller so let us come and pick your brains on what you want your new recruit to do and we can find you suitable candidates.


Advice to Candidates

Some of the skills, knowledge and positive attitude inherent in good candidates are not always apparent from their CVs. We will help draw these out of you and provide an honest assessment (and recommendations) of the types of role and environments that suit you.

We will prepare you for your interview, including where relevant, advice from our own FDs, to improve your chances of a successful placement.

Candidate Testimonials

I have worked with Sara for a number of years and she recently placed me in my 2nd consecutive role.  Sara is a credit to Woodrow Mercer and an absolute pleasure to deal with.  She is different to the rest of the recruitment agents I have dealt with and this is why she stands out.  She always takes the time to listen to what I want from a role and I know I am a very picky candidate - I was looking for nothing short of perfect!  She only ever sends relevant opportunities to me which is hugely important.  Whilst busy holding down a job and trying to find another I don't want to be bombarded with things that aren't within the parameters of what I've asked.  She always keeps me in the loop and deals with my impatience perfectly, ensuring she is as up to date with the progress on interviews as much as possible.  She often makes herself available late on an evening to speak, she is always there to listen and never rushes me off the phone.  I really wanted to share my appreciation for a top class recruiter!

I received excellent advice from Natalie.  When my girls are more grown up and self-reliant then I will seek to work with her again.  I think that she is a step above other recruitment consultants, by far.

Woodrow Mercer are a professional and friendly company who are very easy to work with. Sara managed to find me my ideal job move in one go with no messing and her support every step of the way was a refreshing change. I would highly recommend both Sara and WM if you are looking to find your next role in a stress free and supportive way!

I would like to say a massive thank you to Sara at Woodrow Mercer Finance.  Right from the start she put my needs first and listened to everything I was looking for. I would recommend Sara to anyone looking for a new career.

I cannot recommend Sara at Woodrow Mercer Finance enough. She was extremely helpful, professional and supportive and was instrumental in finding the right job for me. From day 1 she gave me the confidence to strive for the perfect job for me and I thank her for everything she has done.

I cannot thank Sara and Woodrow Mercer enough for helping me find my new role. They have matched me perfectly to the right role, company and team. In doing so, I've fitted straight in and never felt happier.  They have been there for me with great advice from the very beginning, going above and beyond to help me in every way possible.  It has been such a pleasure to have met and worked with Woodrow Mercer Finance.

Thanks to Sara and Woodrow Mercer!  They have been a pleasure to deal with throughout this whole process.  I feel like we are now on a 'sending out Christmas cards' basis!

I  would like to thank Sara and Woodrow Mercer Finance, for their help and dedication in finding me the type of work I was looking for with the hours specific to my needs.
