When it comes to recruitment in this sector, being great with numbers simply isn’t good enough. You need candidates who are as invested in building business partnerships and identifying future problems and opportunities, as they are reviewing spreadsheets. And that’s where our 20+ years of finance and accounting experience quickly adds more value.

Drawing on our extensive global network we’ll identify, evaluate and interview candidates that understand the importance of being able to translate complicated maths into simple English. And are as comfortable playing a key role within a team as they are dealing with numbers on a daily basis. We’ll also only ever recommend candidates we believe will be a great cultural and commercial fit for your business, which is why you can count on us to work closely with your HR teams at every stage.

Here are just a few reasons why we’re trusted around the globe to add value in this sector:

  • We have 20+ years of specialised sector experience, with extensive knowledge within telecoms, healthcare, utilities, social housing and FMCG.
  • Our proven interview process will quickly separate those who simply have a head for numbers, with those that have the skills and tenacity to put you ahead with them too. 
  • Our extensive talent network ensures we’re able to provide quality interim candidates you can rely on to help solve any financial headaches while we search for a permanent solution.
  • Our tenacious approach ensures we’re constantly seeking out passive talent – particularly handy in a sector often faced with a scarcity of immediately available high calibre candidates.
  • We have successfully identified, headhunted and placed leading finance and accounting talent in several countries across UK, Europe, APAC and North America.

£Very Competitive + Car Allowance, Bonus &Benefits

Head of Collections & Recoveries


"A rare opportunity to lead and build a new function in collections and recoveries for a leading asset finance company".


£Very Competitive + Car Alowance + Bonus + Benefits

East Midlands / Hybrid

Commutable from Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, North Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire


The art of diplomacy is a rare skill. Someone once described it as "Letting others have your way". And that's a fair summary because it's a large part of this new role for our client who specialises in commercial asset finance.

As the Head of Collections and Recoveries, the big question you'll need to answer is, "What happens when a client defaults on an agreement for a physical asset?"

Up until now, it's a question our client has rarely needed to answer as they operate on a very low risk profile and default level. And it's one of the reasons why they've grown into one of the UK's most successful and well-regarded asset finance businesses.

But it is possible to be too cautious and miss out on opportunities with a slightly higher risk level. And that's the next stage of our client's business growth programme and why they want a robust collections and recoveries team.

So that's where you come in.

With your experience in commercial asset finance, you'll have a clear vision of how to implement a collections and recoveries function.

You'll know that repossessing assets is the last resort, and there are countless ways of managing a defaulting client before reaching that point. As such, your diplomacy, intelligence, and communication skills will be crucial to your success in this role.

As for your background, our client would like to see evidence of working in a commercial asset finance setting with possibly some experience in law enforcement. You'll be a confident communicator, capable of liaising with end clients to find a win-win resolution. But you'll be able to stand your ground to ensure our client recovers the maximum amount possible.

If repossession is the only answer, you'll have the right connections to secure the assets and understand the various reselling channels to dispose of them.

Our client works nationally in the UK and is based in the East Midlands. They see this role as a hybrid between working at their HQ, home working, and attending client sites as required.

As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1108623 or call us on 01905 381 320.
