Join Talent is a rapidly growing company that specialises in talent acquisition for digital, financial services, media and tech industries. The company has seen a significant increase in its revenue and client base in recent years. However, with growth comes new challenges, and the company soon realised that its systems and processes needed updating and changing. The Finance People were contacted to provide part-time Finance Director services to help Join Talent manage its exponential growth and transform its organisational structure.
Why did Join Talent need a part-time Finance Director?
The initial challenge faced by the company was related to the organisation of the business. The company's rapid growth meant that its systems and processes were outdated, and a lot of things were not functioning optimally. This meant that the finance department was not as efficient as it could be, and the company needed to update its financial management practices to keep up with the growth.
What was the aim of working with The Finance People?
The Finance People provided Join Talent with a part-time Finance Director, James, to support the company in updating and transforming its financial management practices. The Finance Director worked closely with the Join Talent team to re-organise the company's financial systems and processes. The focus was on making the finance department more efficient and aligned with the company's growth trajectory.
How did the working relationship evolve over time?
The Finance Director explained that while there was a certain amount of evolution in the relationship, the principal objective remained the same: lead the team in the change that was needed. The Finance Director began working with Join Talent to address the organisation of the business, but the scope of the work eventually expanded to other areas that needed fixing too. The Finance Director worked to identify and address gaps in the company's financial management practices and collaborated with the Join Talent team to implement the necessary changes.
