An experienced bunch of ferociously hard-working consultants sourcing the best financial talent and the best opportunities in exciting, high-growth companies.


We love working for companies that go through change because that is where CFOs can add real value.  Private Equity-backed companies offer that change, excitement and growth.


Finance Team

At Finatal we don’t just place a CFO then disappear.  The PE firm will be invested for several years in a Portfolio company and we like to help the CFO during that journey.



Facing the challenge of shorter timescales without sacrificing quality.


Finatal were introduced to me last year through our backers, Bridges. They successfully sourced an FD for The Vet, who joined us six months ago and has so far been an invaluable support. I was really impressed with how quickly Paul understood our business and the type of person that I was looking for. He was proactive, moved at pace, kept me well informed and was a pleasure to work with. He’s the only person I’d call next time I was making a senior hire in the finance function.

“From a candidate perspective the process was swift, efficient and focused. The consultants have the ability to rapidly match a client’s specific profile requirements with suitably experienced candidates, whilst also ensuring that there is a strong cultural fit. I would highly recommend Finatal when recruiting into a PE backed environment.”

Chris Terry, CFO Roof-Maker

“I’ve engaged with Finatal twice in the last year for Finance Directors within our portfolio and been very impressed with the outcomes on both occasions; Paul gets what a good private equity FD looks like, and has a very good understanding of the kind of FDs we at August like to work with. He has been tenacious, proactive and delivered strong shortlists for two very different briefs, and we’ve been really happy with the Finance Directors we’ve hired and the value they’ve delivered so far.”

“We engaged Finatal to help us find an interim CFO to fill a gap between permanent appointments. Finatal were quick to come back with an available, relevant shortlist of serial interim CFOs. It meant that we were quickly able to identify someone whom we felt would be best suited to the role. This person came in and hit the ground running and added value from day one. Highly recommended.”

Sarah Bricknell CEO at Medical Imaging Partnership

Following private equity investment we realigned our company strategy to grow on a buy and build model. This required the recruitment of an Acquisition & Strategy Manager to work alongside the Finance Director and the wider Executive Team. Finatal were great at understanding the brief and needs of our business, and effectively putting forward candidates that were very relevant. We have ended up with an excellent recruit. Thank you for your support throughout the process.
