This ambitious plan along with the recent introduction of Senior Manager and Certification Regime (SMCR) regulation is the reason why they are now actively recruiting an additional Non-Executive Director with audit experience to join the Main Board.

With a recognised accounting qualification and credible previous Board experience, applicants will be strategic, analytical and innovative. Experience as a CFO/FD or audit partner in a financial services business is highly preferable and the successful candidate will ideally benefit from a sound commercial track record that demonstrates good judgement and market understanding.
Redmayne Bentley are proud of their continued commitment to a friendly, client and people focussed culture that is driven by their values of Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork. The successful candidate will be an individual who can not only provide the necessary technical experience and skills to fulfil a role on their Board but also someone that will genuinely embrace their values which are lived everyday by the Board and provide a framework for the rest of the business to deliver their continued growth success. The time commitment is approximately 36 days a year including the 12 main board meeting dates.
