Portfolio Finance Professionals 

UK (Nationwide locations) and Ireland

Day rates of £500 to £1,000

EFM is a leading UK and Irish network of finance professionals, business and growth advisors.  We provide outsourced financial management services to businesses that want the benefits of a CFO, Finance Director or Financial Controller – but don’t need a full-time employee. 

We wish to connect with motivated professionals who want to run their own business or join our partnership as a portfolio Finance Professional as we look to grow our network.

We currently have numerous client projects/roles across part time FD and FC roles, due diligence assignments, advisory and interim roles, and are looking to grow our network of finance professionals to fill these roles as demand for our services increases.

Role requirements

You will have gained practical experience to a senior level in industry. You will want to capitalise on your experience, making a material difference to ambitious businesses. You will value a work-life balance and are open to taking another approach to your career. 

  • This is a self-employed role, enabling you to take control of your work and your earnings.
  • We will support you to grow your business either as a self-employed professional or as a partner in our partnership.
  • You will have significant, demonstrable experience or working in senior finance roles for at least 6 years.
  • You will be a qualified accountant.
  • You will have an entrepreneurial spirit but a desire to engage with and contribute to a wider network of like-minded professionals.  


This opportunity may suit you if:

  • You are facing a major change in your senior finance career.  If it’s your time to make a move, EFM can help you build a portfolio of clients.
  • You want to take control of your own destiny? Make a break from your job, become a Portfolio Finance Professional.
  • You are currently going it alone as a portfolio professional. This can be hard - operating as a portfolio professional outside of a network has its challenges. EFM provides support and specialist expertise to help you make a success of your portfolio career.
  • Have you retired, or are you considering retirement, but you still want to work part time and be well rewarded for your skills and experience? As a member of our network we can help you to work with businesses who need the part-time support of experienced professionals.
  • Are you looking for a new opportunity to provide your quality services to growing businesses? We regularly place our members into start-up/scale up businesses that need light- touch support from experienced professionals who know how to achieve growth.  


Our offering

EFM offers the opportunity for a lifestyle change, to manage a small portfolio of SME clients, and working the hours which give you a work-life balance. This is not an employed job – our Associates typically work with a small group of clients who pay for their services. While income is not guaranteed, EFM Associates who get actively involved enjoy the prospects of high rewards and a life style of their choice. Applicants should be prepared to work on business development, networking and marketing, with the support of our central team and national network.  

With EFM you are not alone. We are committed to support you from the moment you set up your business, throughout your entire journey.   

We offer a rewarding long-term license model and a complete turnkey business solution, giving you a business backed by our reputable and experienced team. 

EFM provides guidance and experience. We support our members in building and developing a professional network with best practice gathered through our experienced, collaborative network. We provide training, ongoing marketing support and access to software and proven methodologies that will help you to run your business. 

After applying, your application can take up to 5 working days to be reviewed, in which we will be in contact. For any updates regarding your application, please contact our recruitment team.
