Part-time Finance Director

Sometimes small/medium sized businesses find that they need senior finance input, but not on a full time basis.

Numbers and Beyond offers the service of a part-time Finance Director, allowing you to tap into expert financial knowledge as and when required.  Our owner, Linda, is a highly experienced finance professional, with a wealth of knowledge from her eight years as a Finance Director, firstly for The Economist Intelligence Unit and then for The Economist Group UK and Economist Digital. This gives you the opportunity of having  a corporate professional as part of your management team on a flexible basis for a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time FD.  This will give a clear commercial focus, bring order to your finances and free up your directors’ time.
