Welcome to Ignata finance
We’ve listened to your frustrations with the increasingly transactional, short-term nature of the recruitment industry. We have built our reputation by putting quality and integrity at the forefront of everything we do and we will strive to keep on raising the bar.
By maintaining the highest standards and investing in expertise, innovation and technology, we will continue to differentiate and will deliver as your human capital partner of choice.
Focusing on three distinct methodologies – executive search, interim management and core finance recruitment – we ensure our expertise is focused where you need it most.
As part of Ignata Group, we have the infrastructure and resources to genuinely tailor our approach to meet your demands. We are constant in our indisputable commitment to a genuine partnership, where we care as much about your reputation as our own.
We are focused on the following sectors (across the UK and Globally), across listed, private equity & VC backed businesses, as well as high-growth start-ups and owner-managed companies:
We've built trusted relationships with some of the world's biggest brands across a broad range of industries.
Our typical mandates include the below roles (on an interim or permanent basis).
Scope: British Car Auctions have undergone significant change and growth simultaneously. The leadership team were looking to re-shape the finance organisations both in Europe and in the UK.
Solution: Retained searches were critical for all roles in Europe, whilst working exclusively on UK-based roles to attract A+ talent to their office in Farnham, Surrey.
Results: Ignata invested in a new technology platform that allowed the BCA teams to see our candidates answer key questions and assess cultural fit thus reducing the time to hire significantly (especially useful throughout lockdown). We placed the following roles:
Finance Director (Madrid)
European VAT Manager (Lisbon)
UK Financial Controller (Farnham)
European Finance Manager’s x2 (Farnham)
Financial Analyst, Farnham
UK Remarketing Finance Director
Commercial & Operations Finance Director
Testimonial from David Banks (International FD): "Ben and his team at Ignata have worked very closely with us on several searches for both UK and European roles. I initially enlisted Ben to help fill 2 key UK roles and he brought a number of excellent candidates. As a result of this success I opted to work with Ben on a retained basis for 2 key European roles and again was very impressed with the quality of candidates he brought. Following these successes I am confident that I can rely on Ignata to help me find strong finance professionals in the UK and Europe."
Scope: Sweaty Betty is growing at pace. In order to support this, the board have partnered with Ben to recruit a number of strategic hires.
Solution: Ben exclusively mapped the market using our data-driven research team and tirelessly created an A+ talent pool of culturally aligned candidates. It was by no means an easy mandate but the results speak for themselves.
Results: Ben and his team have recruited the following roles: CFO, Senior FP&A Manager, Head of Transactional Finance, VP Finance, AP Manager (Interim & Junior Staff), Financial Projects Manager (Interim), VP of Logistics & Operations, Ecommerce Manager with more to come!
Testimonial from Mark Smith, COO: "Ben has hired a number of roles for me - all very successfully. He does an outstanding job of really understanding not only the role but the company's culture so making sure he finds candidates that will truly fit. I very much recommend him!"
Testimonial from Harrie Carter-Clout, Finance Director: "Ben supported my recruitment into my current role. He was clearly aligned to the business needs and culture thus ensuring that I had a clear view of company direction prior to interviewing and it was right fit from the start. Throughout the process he engaged with context so I was able to adequately prepare for all conversations. Overall I found him one of the most engaged recruiters I have worked with."
