Why Choose a Part-time Finance Director?

A Part-time Finance Director provides companies that don’t need, can’t afford, or don’t want a full-time director with access to the talent, experience, and skills they do need to achieve business growth. 

Rather than make a major financial commitment and take the time to recruit a full-time director, a Part-time Finance Director can make an immediate impact by sharing strategic knowledge and insights.

A part-time director can help a business set and implement a financial strategy by working with managers in just one day a week or a few days a month.
