The financial control function is critical to the overall health of any organisation, as it essentially looks after the bottom line. Profitability, cash flow, credit, investments, expenses, financial policies, transactions, budgeting, and compliance are all areas that fall under the remit of financial control. Without the solid foundations that a dependable control function can provide, businesses would grind to a halt. What roles make up a strong financial control function? From the junior financial controller to the head of finance, the nature of the role can differ greatly depending on which company it’s a part of.
Ultimately, the skillset of a reliable financial controller is often highly transferrable, and due to their essential status within an organisation, they’re generally in high demand. This can make upgrading your financial control function extremely difficult, particularly once you start experiencing substantial growth of any kind. It’s the people that make the company, and if those people aren’t equipped with the right skillsets or attitude, it can be extremely hard to make any real progress. As if things weren’t difficult enough already, the looming recession and the scarcity of talent makes can take their toll on company resources in the blink of an eye.

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.
