Chief Financial Officer
Recruiting across the South Coast Region; including Southampton, Portsmouth & Bournemouth!
What’s the opportunity?
If you’re a top quality Chief Financial Officer / Finance Director who’s frustrated and fed up with the confines of a normal corporate life and you’re looking for something different, or you’re an independent CFO who’s already made the break from corporate life, or a working or returning CFO parent who wants more work flexibility and work life balance, then read on, this might be for you.
You’ll be responsible for providing CFO services to ambitious £2-50M private businesses, supporting business owners to climb their Everest.
We’re not interested in people who just want a job. You’ll help our clients reach those summits, you’ll be a self-starter with ambition, energy, and a ‘can do’ attitude, who has a passion to help our clients, typically business owners, entrepreneurs, CEO’s or MD’s.
You’ll thrive on the challenge and autonomy of growing your own portfolio of clients, supported by an incredible network of CFOs based across world. 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 UKs major chartered accounting institutes and have been a real-life CFO/FD once, twice or several times over, with strong experience and understanding of commercial finance, business strategy, and a track record of success, although your “special sauce” is your 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 CFO/FDs in a highly collegiate environment. We pride ourselves on being a great place to work, with family at our core, as is often found in our own client’s operations.
“I love the family feel of working here. People genuinely care, and you’re not just a number. Colin, his wife Julie and all four of their sons make you feel like this business is yours as well.” UK Colleague
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.
Rather than feeding you fish, we teach you how to catch them and how to build a portfolio career that can be a game changer for clients and yourself. 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 builds think “how do I add value and do something special for my clients today?”
We’re the UK & Global Market leading provider of part-time Finance Director’s and Chief Finance Officer’s 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/FD, yet who want access to that skillset on an affordable part-time basis.
Who are we?

You’ll join a collective team of former CEOs, Executives, CFOs, FDs, 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.
“I started here 4 years ago and I’m loving the lifestyle, loving the challenge, and loving the difference I can make to the clients I am working with, and the ethos of what this place is all about. I even get to go to my kids football games now!” – CFO Centre CFO
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!

“Working with the FD & CFO Centre has been a game changer for my business. Not only have we doubled our revenue, I’m also able to focus on the things that really matter in the business now.” – CEO Client Company
