Relationship is key to success – Finley George Recruitment Ltd

At Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions we know that relationships are the key to successful funding partnerships, so we always strive to match our clients with the most suitable providers for their needs.

Bristol based recruitment specialist Finley George Recruitment Ltd had experienced much success in placing permanent key and management staff, with salaries ranging from 25k-100k per annum, in call centres around the country.

On the back of their success, Managing Director, Greg Oakes further expanded the company’s offering to encompass more junior roles, which saw many clients approach them in search of temporary staff.

As demand increased, Finley George Recruitment Ltd found that cash flow was preventing them from reaching their potential growth. Funding the payroll and the operational elements to run the back office and pay the contractors became a nice challenge to have, but nevertheless a real challenge to the business’ ability to freely grow to its potential.

Given this, Greg made the decision to free his business from these unnecessary shackles and start to look for a suitable funding solution to help enable him to grow his business in line with their potential.

The team at Hilton-Baird Financial Solutions worked closely with Greg to establish exactly what the needs of the company were, as well as elements which would help the management team to focus on strategic growth, which is quite a feat given the current financial climate. This enabled Hilton-Baird to effectively match our client with the appropriate options and ultimately the most suitable funder.

Greg said: “Hilton-Baird really took the time to listen to our requirements and understood where we came from and where we are driving our business to. I was given all the necessary help and support and my broker was always at hand to answer any questions or queries I had. I felt supported but ultimately I was in the driving seat and made the decision I saw fit for my business. Hilton-Baird only had one interest, my business’ best interests.”

After gauging what facility would best suit Finley George Recruitment Ltd, Hilton-Baird introduced the two most suitable funders. Greg chose a recourse factoring facility, with payroll and back office support.

Since the commencement of the facility, the business has seen a magnificent level of growth, with the placement of temporary contract staff currently running up to £50,000 per month.

Greg continued: “My new funder came across as reliable. Having initially met them, I immediately felt comfortable entering into a relationship with them, which was paramount. Additionally the facility they tailored to our business ticked all of our boxes.

“I’m very pleased that I was in contact with Hilton-Baird when searching for my facility as it is unlikely that I would have found the right funder without them, as it’s not a name I was familiar with or many would associate with cash flow finance, but Hilton-Baird listened to my needs, understood my challenges and delivered what I wanted. I would suggest to other businesses looking for cash flow support to talk to these experts and they will find you just what you need.”
