What Does a Part-Time CFO Do?

A part-time FD will help your company move beyond just keeping financials in order by helping plan and position your company for a strong future. They will:

  • Raise Funding – a part-time finance director has an extensive network of partners and investors with access to all types of funding. We can guide you through the process.
  • Scale Faster – Do you want to scale but don’t have the right funding, processes, or technology in place? A part-time finance director will have guided many businesses through the process before.
  • Increase Valuation – What is your growth plan? What is your roadmap to increasing the value of your business? A part-time FD can answer all these questions so your business gets the value it deserves.
  • Change/Restructuring – The goals of businesses change over time. A part-time finance director has the expertise and experience to make this challenging period a smooth, successful transition.

How Can a Part-Time CFO Help My Business Grow?

  • The role of the modern finance director has changed. They’re no longer expected to simply ‘count the beans’ and offer a strictly financial support function.
  • Finance directors have evolved into commercial business leaders and strategic advisors to CEOs. They play an active role in leading team members, delivering financial advise and expertise, and helping to drive wider business strategies that support an organisation’s long-term goals.
  • When you’re a business looking to grow, you may not have someone on your team with this level of experience and expertise, and employing a full-time finance director or CFO can be risky and costly.
  • Leadership Services offers a flexible finance service that gives you access to highly experienced part-time finance directors who deliver transformative leadership from within your business from day one – without any long-term commitments or hefty costs.

Part-Time CFO FAQs

A part-time CFO is a financial executive who works for a company on a part-time basis, typically for a fixed number of hours per month. Part-time CFOs provide many of the same services as full-time CFOs, including financial planning and analysis, budgeting, forecasting, cash flow management, and financial reporting. Part-time CFOs are often brought on board by small to medium-sized businesses that need the expertise of a financial executive but don’t have the resources to hire a full-time CFO.

For many small to medium-sized businesses, a part-time CFO can be a valuable asset. A part-time CFO can provide the financial expertise and strategic guidance that a business needs to grow and thrive without the cost of a full-time CFO. They can help businesses develop financial plans, identify opportunities for cost savings, and manage cash flow effectively. A part-time CFO can also help businesses navigate complex financial transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions or fundraising, and provide valuable insights into the financial health of the business.

The number of hours a part-time CFO works can vary depending on the needs of the business. Typically, a part-time CFO will work anywhere from 10 to 30 hours per month, depending on the size and complexity of the business. However, the actual number of hours worked will depend on the specific needs of the business and the scope of work agreed upon by the CFO and the company.

The average time that a CFO works can vary depending on the size and complexity of the business. Full-time CFOs typically work between 40 to 60 hours per week, with some working longer hours during busy periods. Part-time CFOs, on the other hand, typically work between 10 to 30 hours per month, depending on the needs of the business. The actual number of hours worked by a CFO will depend on the size and complexity of the business, as well as the scope of work agreed upon by the CFO and the company.

A CFO adds significant value to a business in many ways. They provide financial expertise and strategic guidance, helping businesses develop financial plans, identify opportunities for cost savings, and manage cash flow effectively. CFOs also oversee financial reporting, ensuring that the business is compliant with financial regulations and accurately reporting financial performance. CFOs can also provide valuable insights into the financial health of the business, identifying potential risks and opportunities for growth. Additionally, CFOs can help businesses navigate complex financial transactions, such as mergers and acquisitions or fundraising, and provide valuable support to senior leadership.
