Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Board of Director experience talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Board of Director experience consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk.

Everything you need to know about Board of Director experience

Board of director experience is a valuable skill in a Merger and Acquisition as knowledge gathered from previous experience can be brought to bear during negotiations and post-merger integration.

The experience of a Board of Director in the M&A arena is an excellent and necessary ability for any corporate investor. The M&A process requires a vast amount of organizational and financial experience, not to mention the expertise in managing both complicated companies and cultures. A board member’s skillset as observed by Fintalent’s Board of Director experience consultants can be invaluable for any company looking to grow by acquisition or merger, as well as for those that are looking to do a divestiture.

The equity financing side of a transaction cannot be ignored either, as it is one of the only ways to finance an acquisition or merger. The market in its current state is not one that allows companies to make same day decisions on acquisitions, especially if money is involved in any way. A board member with experience in using various forms of financing as a tool for an M&A could help decide which type of financing would be best for both parties involved and the company being acquired.

There has been a lot of talk about board members’ skillsets and the capabilities that they bring to their respective companies. However, if a company wants to participate in M&A, having a board member with experience in the field can be of great assistance.

As stated above, the experience of a Board of Director in the M&A arena is an excellent and necessary ability for any corporate investor. The M&A process requires a vast amount of organizational and financial experience, not to mention the expertise in managing both complicated companies and cultures. A board member’s skillset can be invaluable for any company looking to grow by acquisition or merger, as well as for those that are looking to do a divestiture. There are many different types of acquisitions and mergers, from very large to very small. Although there are some that are more complex than others, acquisition and merger tactics remain the same. The art of negotiation between the acquiring party and the company being acquired is what can ultimately make or break an M&A deal. A board member used to conducting this type of transaction could help determine how to set realistic expectations for both parties involved in the deal, as well as for the entire process of carrying out that transaction.

There has been a lot of talk about board members’ skillsets and the capabilities that they bring to their respective companies. However, if a company wants to participate in M&A, having a board member with experience in the field can be of great assistance.

A board member’s credentials should be considered when conducting a due diligence process on the company being acquired. A board member who has been involved in similar deals will not only be able to relay pertinent information but could also give an insight into how the company works. Additionally, they will be able to pull out information that makes it seem like a great fit between the two companies and either making or losing a great amount of money at the same time. Those who have knowledge in this area are priceless, as they create synergy and add value to any deal.

There are also different ways to look at an acquisition. One way is to look at it from the shareholder’s point of view; another way is to view it from how it affects the company as a whole. A board member could discuss how this deal could be beneficial for both parties involved and at the same time, what the financial benefit would be for the company. That being said, this type of discussion should not take away from determining if the company is viable and will make money in the long run.

To conclude, a board member’s skillset should be used as much as possible when conducting an M&A transaction. It should not be forgotten that a board member has the ability to make or break an acquisition and a merger. Moreover, they have the potential to create synergy and build value at the same time. M&A is a crucial aspect of corporate development, and having a board member with this experience can make all the difference in the world.
