About EFM:

EFM is a UK and Ireland  team of senior finance professionals, business and growth advisors. 
We provide outsourced financial management services to businesses that want the benefits of a Finance Director or Finance Controller – but don’t need a full-time FD or FC. 
We provide practical commercial support to hundreds of growing businesses across the UK, complementing the services of accountancy practices, including: 
• Improving business performance, profits, growth and board-level advisory services 
• Support for funding and investment, cash flow/working capital management, management reporting 
• Exit planning to achieve the best return on investment, while offering strategic support to your management team 
• Interim assignments (staff cover, year-end reporting, budgeting and forecasting) 
“The biggest thing for me is that EFM have a really good range of individuals with a range of different experiences. In three different scenarios, I’ve managed to slot in the right type of Financial Director. That, for me, is the biggest benefit of working with EFM and that reflects in the fact that they’ve got a broad range of individuals. 
I can pick up the phone to Gary Jesson, or even ask questions to some of the associates who are placed in different businesses to enable me to network with them.  EFM are able to put me in touch with people who can deal with specific issues like R&D tax credits, so we benefit from working with the EFM network. 
I have used other similar organisations in the past. All my experience before is that you get given what they want and not what you want and I think that’s the fundamental difference with EFM”.
