Our History

In 2010, Finatal was launched under the core belief that there was a place in the market to provide recruitment services for fully qualified accountancy and finance professionals within a multitude of specialist sectors. Finatal was the innovation of two highly experienced directors who spent a number of years within the finance recruitment firm Marks Sattin, until it was eventually sold in 2007.

Building a business from the ground up all the way to exit, taught these two directors many fundamental values that they felt could be replicated, this time only better.  With a strong focus on SME, emerging markets and growth businesses, today we have a strong reputation for delivering quality and promise.

Our Vision

At Finatal we strive to be the best. And it’s working. Our growing portfolio of repeat business means satisfied customers who keep coming back for more.

We believe our desire to go above and beyond illustrates our commitment to the job, constantly developing new ways to do business.

Our Values

We are listeners, questioners and dedicated leaders in what we do. Our persistence to overcome problems keeps us sharp and consultative.

We work together with both clients and candidates to closely assess situations, which ultimately provide us with the best results. We are professionals who get the job done.

About Finatal

“I was placed by Finatal in my current role as Finance Director of NVM-backed No.1 Traveller; I’d met Paul eighteen months earlier, and he was one of the few consultants to stay in touch over time. He had a good grasp of the market and felt he had a good understanding of the kind of business and opportunity that I would be suited to – and no.1 Traveller ticked the boxes; private equity-owned, multi-site and with a great brand, but also the right kind of cultural fit and relationship with the CEO. Paul was direct, straightforward to deal with and kept me upto date throughout the process; 8 months in and I’m really enjoying the role and business.”

Elliott Adams, CFO No1 Traveller Ltd.

“I worked with Finatal to fill a number of key hires in my finance team including a Group Finance Controller. I was extremely impressed with Finatal’s ability to understand my fairly specific skill set and fit requirements and their ability to quickly source a short list of highly suitable candidates. I also appreciated having Finatal’s view on the best person for the role and luckily we were in agreement on each role. Finatal closed the successful candidate quickly and in line with my remuneration expectations for each role.”

Chris Wilmot, Group CFO QualiTest Group

“I used Finatal when I had an urgent requirement for a short term cover. The Interim team got on the case immediately and on the same day sent me two CV’s of immediately available candidates .
They arranged for the interviews the next day and the chosen candidate started two days after. The whole process was very smooth as they took time from the onset to really understand the brief.  It was a pleasure to work with Finatal and will definitely use them again should the need arise.”

Arassen Sunassee, Group Financial Controller Lineup Systems (NVM Private Equity backed)

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.
