Commercial finance is an incredibly broad term that encompasses a huge range of various roles and responsibilities relating to finance products. It’s often used to refer to financial products aimed at businesses, rather than at individuals. For example, lending, leasing, revolving credit options, business loans, and asset-based lending. It could also be used to refer to any type of financing that’s more expensive than a standard personal loan.
Businesses often require vastly complex financing solutions to cover their unique needs, and as a result, the products on offer need to be piloted by a range of highly specialised professionals that possess a vast knowledge of compliance laws. There are many, many different types of financial product in the commercial finance space, and just as many types of roles to manage them. Some key commercial finance function roles and responsibilities might include investment management, commercial finance management, banking analysts, accounts management, FP&A management, and CFO.
A comprehensive commercial financial function, enabled by leading-edge tech, and piloted by the top talent, can be more than another department – it can be a real business partner. Whether you need to build your own commercial finance function, or you’re hoping to develop a financial product of your own, you’re going to need the right people by your side to get it done. In a talent-short market, finding the world’s always-in-demand financial talent can be tough, regardless of whether or not a global recession looms over the horizon.

Business Protection and Enablement Recruitment Services in Manchester
Manchester has developed a name for itself as a hub of innovation. Along with some of the best bands to ever grace the planet, Manchester is home to a thriving a finance sector, a growing legal industry, and a bustling creative hotspot, boasting some of the biggest brands found anywhere. Here at Broadgate, we love being close to the centre of the action, which is one of the many reasons why we decided to open our Manchester office back in 2018. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to provide staffing solutions for hundreds of companies, enabling us to make incredible progress on our mission to build diversity, create inclusion, and encourage workplace innovation.
The current talent shortage is proving to be exceptionally difficult for the Manchester recruitment scene, but using our vast talent network and the passion of our highly experienced consultants, we’re able to pinpoint candidates at the drop of a hat, even when times get tough. Turning to a third-recruitment agency is a great way to save yourself a huge amount of time and money throughout the process, and it grants you access to a much wider talent pool.
The team at Broadgate specialise in delivering staffing solutions in Cybersecurity, Finance, Accounting and Audit, Risk and Analytics, Transformation and Change, Compliance, Legal, and Financial Crime, and other areas relating to business protection and business enablement. We’re not like other Manchester recruitment agencies – we’re a people-before-profit operation that takes a DEIB-led approach to hiring (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).
By placing people at the heart of every decision, we’re able to access talent from the widest available candidate pool. Many internal hiring managers will rely solely on their personal network to source a new hire, and this effectively limits narrows the search. Narrow can be good, but not when it lacks the depth needed to fill technical roles. Our expert consultants have a wealth of industry knowledge, and when this is combined with a granular understanding of the job market in Manchester, we can expand the search in the right direction, enabling us to get it right the first time.
Manchester is rife with talent, it’s just a question of knowing where to find the right people, and then supporting those people on their journey towards their new career.
