“I get enormous job satisfaction from working so closely with the decision makers in companies rather than being a small part of a large business.”

Caroline Dodds, portfolio FD at the FD Centre
(part of The CFO Centre Group)

Caroline Dodds, used to work with FTSE-listed companies but threw in the towel to work with Scale-Up businesses for the FD Centre, the largest provider of part-time FDs in the UK.

Being in control of her time is one of the best things about being a part-time FD for Caroline.  It gives her the flexibility to strive for the illusive work-life balance we all crave.

Rather than work as a sole trader, there’s the added benefit of a network of experts to bounce ideas off. Being able to communicate with FDs from around the world is something Caroline finds very useful especially as she has clients in China and Hong Kong. “I love networking and working within a team. The FD Centre and the wider Liberti Group offer a massive network.”

“I wanted to have colleagues that I could bounce ideas off. You can’t be a master of everything by yourself. If there’s something I’m not sure about, I know there will be someone who will have come across that issue.”

So, Caroline is living proof that work-life is possible. Is it really possible? OK, without another few hours in the day, we all know it’s tricky but one step closer has got to be good, right?
