Welcome to the website for the UK Chapter of The Financial Executives Networking Group, which is for senior financial executives, recruiters, sponsors and strategic partners. Networking is a process by which you can create meaningful business contacts and relationships to further your career and enhance your professional life.
The Financial Executives Networking Group was founded in 1991 and now has over 40,000 members with 70 chapters and 30 special interest groups. Its purpose is to create the opportunity for senior financial professionals to network, share job leads and create friendships with peers in the financial community. If you would like further information on the international organisation, please visit www.TheFENG.org.
The UK Chapter of The Financial Executives Networking Group has grown to several hundred members, representing a diverse range of industries and roles. The chapter meets for dinner every two months in London, and meetings are devoted primarily to networking in an informal setting.
Criteria for membership is simple. The Financial Executives Networking Group is, as its name implies, a financial networking group. It is also a very senior level organisation. Almost without exception, members have held titles such as Finance Director, Financial Controller or Treasurer of a significant organisation and have at least 15 years of work experience. You will need a sponsor, as it is a sponsorship based organisation and not a "fee for service". For those with different backgrounds, there are other networking groups that are more appropriate.
Recruiters, whether companies or search professionals, are encouraged to use The Financial Executives Networking Group as a resource to recruit senior financial executives, for both permanent and interim positions. Opportunities are sent electronically to UK members, and can be circulated internationally to all members if required.
An online forum has been introduced for the UK to complement the existing organisation and further facilitate networking between senior financial executives. The forum is exclusively for UK members to network and share leads, as and when convenient to themselves.
The Financial Executives Networking Group is a voluntary organization. If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact us.
