David Sayers


Throughout my career I have built an extensive cross-sector network, providing me with the unique market knowledge necessary to locate the best talent for my clients needs. In addition, I work closely with my candidates to mentor and aid their personal career development, approaching clients and candidates alike with honesty, transparency, professionalism and courtesy, determined to deliver excellence in whatever capacity I am engaged.

I never fail to grasp the importance of such a task; being trusted with people’s careers on the one hand and the potential success of an organisation on the other.


David Sayer’s career has spanned over 20 years and included operational finance roles within the property sector and headhunting within the C suite community. During this time, he has worked for both FTSE and privately-owned recruitment businesses as well as successfully launching and developing his own practice.

As an experienced adviser on many issues surrounding CFO-level strategic requirements, David is regularly brought in by the Board when they are looking to secure their new group finance lead, in addition to completing mandates on behalf of the CFO when the organisation requires additional talent to meet the demands of an ever-changing landscape.

Throughout his career, David has seen first-hand the growing breadth of skills required by the modern CFO. With reporting lines shifting many CFO’s now take on responsibility for IT, Marketing, HR, Communications and Operational teams, as well as the more traditional finance functions. As a result, David has an increasingly diverse network and far reaching experience in terms of role sector.

David has been fortunate enough to work with progressive companies to bring real talent to their organisations and has compiled an extensive network of accomplished business leaders both in the UK, Europe and internationally in the process.
