Finance Executive Search


SR Search has developed a strong Financial Officers and C Suite practice to meet the needs of our clients who are looking for a discrete and highly professional executive search platform. We work with a variety of businesses including FTSE listed businesses (small cap to FTSE 100) private equity backed businesses, professional services firms and privately owned companies.

We focus on Chief Financial Officers, and their direct reports as well as Chief Operating Officers and other C suite senior management roles. We also help Boards attract talent for Non-Executive Director positions. We have assisted a variety of clients to hire the best talent for their businesses and in doing so we have helped develop the careers of many senior finance professionals. An example of some of the placements we have made include: CFO FTSE 350 (Manufacturing business); Deputy CFO (FTSE 350, Business Services firm); Chief Operating Officer (US media company); CFO (Professional Services firm); Deputy CFO (German listed business); Country Finance Director (Fortune 500 Iberia/Italy)


We offer a service that is driven by Directors from origination through to execution and where successful outcomes are underpinned by continuous communication. We like to work with clients and not for them, providing strategic advice and counsel.  Whilst our focus is predominantly UK orientated, we work closely with our network of international offices on assignments outside the UK and access an international talent pool.

Before starting an assignment with a client, we strongly believe in getting to know them by understanding their culture, organisational structure, strategy and what makes them different. We then suggest a strategic approach to achieving their goals. We do not over promise, and have a practical and honest approach that produces results.


Case Study

We were instructed by a FTSE 350 business to undertake a search for their Chief Financial Officer (CFO). The firm was undergoing change within its senior management team, and the need to hire a CFO was the last piece in the change programme.
