Our success is built on our dedication to delivering optimal outcomes for our clients. High levels of professional competence and integrity are of fundamental importance to our business relationships. The example appointments below demonstrate our track record in four key areas:

1. Permanent roles
2. Interim hires
3. Multi-hire assignments
4. Specialist roles

Specialist, International & Multi-Hire Expertise


Perhaps you need to replace an outgoing finance leader, upskill a team with additional expertise, or make a first-time appointment to a newly-created role. Bronzegate have experience of delivering the right candidate in all of these situations.


Whether your next finance executive search is UK-based or international, we can support you. We manage expatriate assignments, as well as searches focused on identifying local talent.


We are also adept at handling multiple hire assignments. Typically, multi-hires occur during the formation of a new leadership team, a period of transformation, or to steadily optimise a finance leadership team over time.


Working across all sectors and with experience of appointing every type of finance leader, we are here to make your organisation succeed.
