Chief Financial Officer Post

Portfolio CFO Opportunity with The CFO Centre


What’s the opportunity?

Are you a top quality Chief Financial Officer (CFO) frustrated with the confines of corporate life and looking for something different, or an independent CFO who’s made the break from corporate life, or a CFO parent who wants more flexibility and work life balance, then read on, this might be for you.

You’ll be responsible for providing part time CFO services to ambitious entrepreneurs and their businesses.

You’ll help our clients reach their goals, you’ll be a self-starter with ambition, energy, and a ‘can do’ attitude, who has a passion to help clients, typically entrepreneurs and CEOs.

You’ll thrive on the challenge and autonomy of growing your own portfolio of clients, supported by an incredible network of CFOs across the globe. We have big dreams, and we expect you to have the same.


What do you need to have?

You need to be qualified from one of the major chartered accountancy institutes and have been a real-life CFO once, twice or several times over, with strong experience and understanding of commercial finance, business strategy, and a track record of success, with a natural ability to build genuine long-lasting relationships with our clients. Part CFO, part advisor, part strategist, part friend. Your clients will say “this person and The CFO Centre are in it with me for the long-term, and I know they really care”.

Working closely with your Regional Director and Team of CFOs in a collegiate environment. We pride ourselves on being a great place to work, with family values at our core, as is often found in our own client’s operations.


How does it work?

The role is self-employed, whilst operating within a defined model, combining the benefits of being part of a team and supported by a well-established organisation, but with a level of autonomy and freedom in how you deliver outcomes for clients.

You’ll love the challenge, variety and interest of working for multiple clients and appreciate the flexibility this way of working provides. A great listener, and even better at asking great questions, at first you’ll wake up every day and think “how do I build my portfolio today” and then as your portfolio grows, think “how do I add value and do something special for my clients today?”

We’re the Global Market leader of part-time Chief Financial Officer services to mid-sized businesses. As we say, for those businesses that don’t want, don’t need and probably can’t afford a full time CFO, yet who want access to that skillset on an affordable part-time basis.


Who are we?

We’re 650 people, in 5 continents, across 17 countries, operating in 95 locations. The CFO Centre was started to change the game for mid-tier businesses!

You’ll join a collective team of former CEOs, Executives, CFOs and successful business owners who count themselves at top of the game, and who’ve experienced success in their former lives.

We’re the Avengers team of the financial strategy world, bringing together thousands of years of collective experience to supercharge our clients’ businesses.

We’re a movement of people that left ‘corporate’ seeking a freedom-based lifestyle. This isn’t about retiring or kicking back drinking pina coladas on a beach in Thailand. It’s about doing something purposeful and being the captain of your own ship. Freedom is loving what you do, and about having choice.


What do we do?

We define and deliver the numbers that really matter. What does that mean? Well anyone can come up with numbers, we help our clients find the ones that really make a difference, not only to their business, but to their lives, and help deliver them! Whether that’s growth, acquisition, consolidation, or setting them up for the lifestyle they’ve always wanted.


Here’s some of what our CFO’s have to say about working with us...

It is wonderful to assist clients in this role as CFO with skills and knowledge that I have collected over my career.  Apart from the interesting businesses and people I am exposed to, I really enjoy the flexibility this brings to my personal life.  But the best reward is the smile on a client’s face and the appreciation that I have added value and rolled a stone out of the way for them!

My transition from a corporate CFO to the portfolio lifestyle was an unexpectedly enriching experience.  I found myself in the midst of like-minded professionals and felt quite at home.  The CFO Centre supported my transition well with training sessions on proven tools and methodologies which assisted my changing mindset to that of a value adding consultant.
