Independent Finance Function assessment

Improving your profit capability

Our Outline Finance Review provides a quick assessment of your finance function capability

If you aren’t a finance professional by background, it can be hard to work out exactly what is needed in your finance function to support your business and your ambitions. If you feel that your finance team or team leader is starting to struggle it makes sense to understand the problem before working out a solution.

Problems are often caused by team members’ skills and experience falling behind the rising complexity of the business. Problems can also stem from other areas. We would look at

  1. Finance team members’ skills and capability
  2. The processes being followed
  3. System or tools being used
  4. Issues outside the team

Or you are looking to get more from your Finance Function and this change can’t be met with the current model or team members.

We provide a quick assessment of the current finance function across the above areas to enable you to better understand the problem.

Meet our Award-Winning Expert - Jess Coles

Jess Coles

I have worked in or led Finance Team in corporates such as Fosters, mid-tier business such as Innocent Drinks and the large SMEs. I have successfully transformed the performance of multiple finance teams from 4 people to 35 people and won Accountancy Age magazine awards and internal awards for “Best Team”. I have delivered when the business is in high growth, in turnaround and in steady state.

The Finance Function performance is rooted with the people in the team. Most people are looking to do a good job, and with the right role and right support can flourish. I have spent 1000s of hours mentoring and am a professional Coach. I have also taken hard decisions when there are no other practical options. Creating an open, friendly, supportive atmosphere with accountability is my preferred approach.

Processes and systems are also key factors in Finance Function performance, and I have decades of experience with both.

I am always happy to chat through your situation with you, so please give me a call.
