How We Work With You
In business it is hard to succeed and even more difficult to ensure that the growth of your business is maintained on a continual basis. With Secantor on your side (working with your team) we will ensure that you have the best chances possible to achieve all you want from your business and more.

Each of our business support experts has been a commercially driven finance director and is a past-master at building profitability, protecting cash-flow and raising funds when and where necessary. Secantor business support experts only work with you on the really important stuff which ensures that their time is cost effective. You get a dedicated individual that is there to help you with your business and you can feel assured that they will help you make your business a success.

Step one:

We will first come and visit you. We will, without any commitment on your part, spend a day with you to review your business and assess your needs. We have to understand what you and your business are about and we will also look to establish exactly what your future aspirations are. To do this we will need to meet with you so that you can get to know us and we can get to know you. The first thing we will do is listen – carefully. It is only by doing this that we can tailor our support to ensure we focus our efforts appropriately and select the person (or people) that is right for you and your business, based on experience, expertise and personal chemistry.

Step two:

After we have gained an initial insight into you and your business and what you are looking to achieve we will then devise a proposal outlining a number of things:

  • An Outline of Probable Costs
  • Timescales Involved
  • The Financial Benefits
  • Outline of The Process Involved

Step three:

Once you have had the chance to peruse this at your own leisure we then look to introduce you to a specialist Secantor business expert. Once you have agreed that you would like us involved to help your business move forwards we will have someone join you within as little as 5 days.

Because each of our business experts has a background as the FD of substantial companies, he or she will be able to learn very quickly about what makes your company tick and then identify the issues that require immediate attention. Our experts are sensitive to the cultural qualities of any company and changes they recommend will be introduced sympathetically, working closely with you and your management team on a flexible, as-needed basis.

Secantor can help your business by

  • Sourcing Best Financing and Manage Bank Relationships
  • Improving Management Information and Streamline Finance
  • Rejuvenation of Struggling Businesses
  • Managing Growth
  • Improving Cash Flow and Profitability
  • Exit planning/succession/sale
  • Improving cash flow and cash management
  • Strategic and business planning, financial forecasts
  • Building an effective Finance Function
  • Acquisitions
  • Improving profitability and business performance
  • Management Information and decision analysis/support
  • Getting the right finance and management

Our involvement can have a dramatic effect on a business, as many of the people we have helped will confirm. The benefits we bring are significant and will depend on what you need.

On what basis does Secantor work with me?

At Secantor, we look to build long term relationships (some of our clients have been with us for over 8 years). Our business and financial support is provided on the basis that you want it, that could mean:

Part – time: We join your management team and bring a wide range of financial and commercial skills right into the heart of your business. We are a true variable cost and our involvement can go up and down, depending on the needs of the business.

Interim: Whatever your reasons for needing interim support, we can provide you with the skills you need quickly and efficiently. There is no front or back end cost and you can avoid rushing the important task of finding a full time replacement. After working with us, you may consider a part-time solution the right way forward

Project: If you have a project that requires specialist skills, or a major event that creates a need to augment your team, then Secantor can help. Our expert can either take internal ownership of the project or simply provide guidance through the process.

We work on a day rate basis or against agreed deliverables. We are a true variable cost that you can increase or reduce, depending on your needs.

You therefore are able to acquire experienced, high quality business support for a fraction of the cost of employing that same individual(s), but have none of the additional costs and risks associated with employment – no recruitment fee, NI or pension obligations, fringe benefits or redundancy obligations.
