        Octavia – Head of Financial Control

        Octavia was inspired by their founder, the social reformer Octavia Hill, and are a not-for-profit organisation that provides thousands of people with affordable homes in inner London. 

        Octavia believe that good homes make for better lives.

        Brief/Problem

        After a new Finance Director started, Octavia were looking to modernise the finance team, moving from a transactional focus to one that is supporting decision making and looking to add value. The organisation went through a restructure and were left with a number of vacancies.

        Approach/research

        We worked with the Finance Director from an early stage, advising on the structure and benchmarking around salaries. We were then able to take the aims and vision for the finance team at Octavia to the market, highlighting the opportunities and challenges.

        Results/achievement

        We successfully recruited the new Head of Financial Control, bringing in someone who had both the passion and technical skills with the aim of modernising their team and how it approached work.
