Juggle Jobs and Accountancy Cloud have announced a partnership to ‘address the growing number of startups that request high-quality flexible CFOs to work alongside their accountancy solution’
Many of Accountancy Cloud’s clients are at a growth stage where the need for a CFO to provide strategic direction and manage the relationship with Accountancy Cloud exists, but the budget for hiring does not. Accountancy Cloud is a challenger accountancy service using Open Banking and real-time financials to improve financial visibility.
Blending software and flexible staff, Accountancy Cloud offers best-in-class, personalised services to their customers, without the expensive fees associated with outsourced accounting firms.
It has built smart AI and machine learning technology to restore order to clients’ books, handle taxes and track cash. This, combined with a team of skilled finance professionals, means Accountancy Cloud provides a service that matches their customer base, who are naturally disruptors themselves.
Similarly, Juggle is a provider of experienced professionals to progressive startups. Its flexible hiring and management platform combines intelligent AI with the best of the human touch giving companies a curated experience expected in Executive Search, but without the price tag.
Accountancy Cloud approached Juggle after using the platform to hire inflexible professionals themselves, as they have a network of more than 45,000 flexible professionals, 50% of whom are within the finance and accounting vertical.
Alongside the community of professionals, they have a hiring and management platform that allows companies to find, onboard, pay, and manage experienced flexible staff at a fraction of the cost of traditional executive recruitment.
Wesley Rashid, CEO of Accountancy Cloud said: “The companies we work with are often in need of a CFO, both to manage the relationship between us and them and also to curate the financial strategy. However, the bulk of these companies are at growth stages and so finding and affording senior financial hires can be somewhat out of their reach.
“Accountancy Cloud used Juggle to find, hire and pay a number of our flexible staff and the process and outcome could not have been better, therefore a partnership in order to provide a much-needed service to our clients was a no-brainer.”
As well as partnering with Accountancy Cloud, Juggle recently published a guide to help start-up businesses make the right choices about hiring a CFO. The e-book Hiring a Part-time CFO: A Founder’s Handbook, is available FREE to download here.
Romanie Thomas, CEO of Juggle, said: “Eventually, all start-ups will outgrow their original accounting function and in order to approach scaling that up they must first outline their eventual needs.
“Knowing this is the first step in developing a role that can adjust and grow with the business. Having top tier talent on a flexible basis is the most sensible decision a startup can make.”
