A finance director working in a law firm today is an essential asset to the firm’s partners, usually sitting at board level. This individual must now play a critical role in strategy creation, risk management and operational efficiencies against the backdrop of an ever more financially innovative competitor landscape.This requires more than a solid financial background. It takes a strategic overview and an operational focus; the ability to see the micro and the macro. As the head of what is often the biggest single team in any law firm, they need exceptional leadership skills. Finance directors today will manage the impact of ABS legislation in the most strategic and efficient way, while also planning how to maximise opportunity when the economy recovers will be the most pressing concerns on the agenda.
At Totum, we know that there’s more to excellence than just ticking the boxes. In the legal sector more than any other, candidate placement is about match-making - matching the right expertise, personality and aspirations with the right role, in the right firm. We work closely with our candidates and our clients to ensure that when we recommend a role to you, it’s exactly right. No compromises.

Burning issues for Financial Directors
|"Having made the decision to enter the job market I got in touch with Tim on the back of a recommendation from a colleague and I can confidently say I was not disappointed. They are a professional outfit who are clearly very well connected to their market. I liked the personable yet no nonsense approach of the team and in particular Gary and Tim. As a candidate who is now a client I can highly recommend them."|
