Why hire a fractional CFO?

Hiring a fractional CFO enables you to bring a senior-level finance expert on board at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee. This is a great solution for start-ups, small businesses and organisations whose needs tend to vary throughout the year.

Some of the key advantages of hiring a fractional CFO include:

  • Increased flexibility. Employee hours can be tailored to the needs of your business. More support can be provided during busy times with the option to revert to a more consistent level when appropriate.
  • It’s cost-effective. Your business can benefit from the skills and knowledge of an expert, without making a significant financial commitment. If you’re paying a part-time wage, it also expands your talent pool because you can consider more senior professionals compared to if you needed to pay someone on a full-time basis.
  • Flexible working traditionally brings increased job satisfaction – something which is reflected in productivity. Part-time employees can do just as much in their shorter day or week and typically have lower absenteeism and sickness rates compared to full-time employees.
