Securing the finance talent to thrive in changeable times
In an environment where the only certainty is change, cashflow and cost control are crucial. This is when you need your finance function to step up and lead. As such, competition is fierce for the CFOs and FDs who have the experience to pilot your company through the turbulence. Whether it is streamlining and restructuring, expansion into new markets, the roll out of new products and services, mergers and acquisitions or the adoption of new technologies, you need nimble, operationally focused, strategic thinkers who can collaborate across the whole of an organisation and who have the creativity and vision to drive transformation.
When competition is fierce, you need a well networked talent ally to give you the edge
As trusted advisors to the CEO, the role of CFO, in large corporations, is becoming increasingly influential. Today’s CFOs must be experts in their own field, they also have to be masters of the other strategic drivers across the organisation. A CFO, however, is only as good as his or her team. As a strategic talent ally, we attract the right people to create executive teams aligned with your unique requirements.

From my initial contact with Seymour John they provided a service which was both very efficient and professional. Emlyn and Mark took the time to fully understand my needs and expectations, taking pride in building a worthwhile relationship through regular contact both on the phone and face to face. As a candidate of Seymour John you feel extremely valued and I would highly recommend them.
IS Griffiths Ltd
I would like to recommend Phil Topper to anyone looking for the best possible advice, support and guidance when facing any career decision. His detailed understanding of not just what I wanted for my career, but also what I needed for my work/life balance was very refreshing and exactly what I was looking for. Phil helped me make the best career decision possible for me, and I would call on his expertise again in the future without any hesitation.
Margin Analyst, Autoclimate Ltd
Seymour John are a refreshing change from other recruitment agencies. They value their Consultants, treat them as individuals, pay promptly, give guidance on administrative issues quickly and throughout the term of the contract they are in regular contact to discuss the progress of the project. I particularly enjoyed working with Emlyn John with his upbeat humour and regular contact which has meant I have felt fully supported in the assignment. I look forward to working with Seymour John again at sometime in the very near future.
ACA Compliance Ltd
Darren was recommended to me by a previous client I had completed some work for whilst working in consultancy, always a good sign. After a lengthy chat, which did not feel rushed or a roll out of the usual questions, he found out why I wanted to leave my current role, seemed to fully understand the reasons behind this and grasped the type of role and direction I was looking for. The result being a great interview with a great company and eventually a great job offer which I hope will be the start of the next stage of my career. Seymour John has the personal touch I was looking for which is difficult to find these days and the level of communication was outstanding.
Risk & Regulatory Manager, RAC
I already had a strong relationship with Simon as a client so when I decided that it was time for a career move he was the obvious choice for help and guidance… he found the right business, with the right culture and people, in the right location and got me face time… now I am Finance Director of that business. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Simon to anyone in my network.
Finance Director, McAuliffe Group
I first contacted Jordan back in 2013 and he secured me interim work. I found him to be extremely professional, approachable and unlike many other recruiters at the time he truly understood my skills and requirements. He was always willing to help and assist. I now find myself in a permanent managerial role where I am required to carry out recruitment on a regular basis. I therefore had no hesitation in immediately contacting Jordan as I knew I would receive excellent customer service and he would find me the right level of candidate, which of course he has always done.
Senior Manager Finance Operations, Secure Trust Bank
The team at Seymour John are extremely personable and efficient. In negotiating contract work for me they have shown excellent negotiating skills with the client and have been very flexible and adaptable. A recruiting agent that I would be happy to recommend to anyone, particularly those linked with the internal audit and risk industry, where they have demonstrated an in depth knowledge and practical experience.
Managing Director, BOBria Solutions Ltd
Seymour John were absolutely great, always there to help with anything I needed and gave me great support in the whole process. This really is a people person firm. I found a really great role that I am enjoying enormously and they have continued to support me to this point. If you are in search of a new role then this is a firm that will really get to know you as a candidate and find the role that you are looking for. They go above and beyond which you really come to appreciate.
Treasury Accountant, Secure Trust Bank
Simon placed me into my first contractor role. He has provided me with professional advice from the beginning to the end, including contract negotiation, necessary insurance and other logistics. As a client, I can say that Simon demonstrated that he goes an EXTRA MILE to ensure the candidates are well supported. Being a contractor, who is coming from the long permanent career it is important to receive mentoring and coaching. Simon has offered just that. In addition, the back office of Seymour John is seamless!
Alina Listopad Associates Ltd
Phil is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. He delivers a first class service, does exactly what he says he will and is completely honest with you. I would recommend him to anyone.
