Our client is a leading PE backed professional services consultancy group.  They have grown both organically and via a number of acquisitions and are highly profitable, as such the decision has been made to embark on an exit.  The CFO has a talented finance team and a newly created requirement for an FP&A lead to support the business and planned exit.  Whilst this would be a permanent requirement, due to the planned transaction, they are looking to hire on an interim basis - with the intention it would become permanent should the situation allow.
