EM Finance

Welcome to EM Finance

EM Finance covers appointments in all sectors. Clients are both Blue Chip multinationals and entrepreneurial high-growth businesses. Roles are for qualified accountants or MBAs and cover all those that report to a CFO, including specialist (eg corporate development) roles.

We manage recruitment on behalf of our clients on either a contingency or retained basis using a combination of database selection, advertised selection and executive search, as required. Our database of candidates is continually refreshed with new candidates added via this website, through advertising and by referral. If needed we will also build candidate lists through both advertising and direct marketing campaigns utilising both print and online media as well as mailing lists provided by trade bodies such as CIMA. We will also manage a full executive search service, covering target identification, approach, selection and project management.
