Job Description



It's rare that we get to recruit for ourselves but here it is. We're looking for a Group FC to manage Woodrow Mercer's various divisions, based in our Leeds office.


Woodrow Mercer has come a long way since it was founded with just 2 people in 2011. We're now a 5 office, multi-discipline specialist recruiter with a team of nearly 60. Our Finance division was set up in 2016 as a joint venture with specialist advisory, FDYL, a team of Finance Directors with headquarters in Leeds. It's with these individuals that the Group FC will work closely, building best-in-class finance systems and processes to help our consultants continue delivering.


You will have qualified as an accountant with great academics.

You'll be looking to work in a fun, challenging & fast-paced environment.

You'll want to be an FD one day and happy to take advice along the way.

You won't mind getting stuck in, creating reports from scratch and working with teams to help them see where they operate at their best.


In return, you'll get to be a part of a fast-growing organisation (great soundbite for the CV), work alongside experienced Finance Directors & gain an insight into the world of recruitment.


We have a transactional services team in Birmingham, so you'll need to travel there from time to time (maybe once a week).

As recruiting Financial Controllers is our offering, this is going to be a tough one. We know so many brilliant ones in the Leeds area and we're really excited to be working with one of them.


If you're interested, please send your CV to or call 0113 457 9990 for more information.
