Jenson Solutions services continues to expand and can be found throughout the UK.
Our vision is to help small to medium sized organisations achieve their potential. We believe this is best achieved by providing the managers and owners of businesses with as much support as required, and by giving each of our Finance Directors the support they need to ensure they can focus on what really matters.
We believe the main role of the Finance Director is to help businesses to manage the competing demands within their business between: risk, cash, profit, growth and strategy. Each decision a business makes can affect each of these areas differently and we believe it is the role of the Finance Director to furnish the managers of a business with the tools to make the right decisions. However, many Finance Directors get swamped by issues around compliance, information provision and cash flow management and therefore struggle to contribute fully to the aspirations of their business.
The diverse experience of our Finance Directors allows us to help businesses on a project or outsourced basis and make the experience as efficient and effective as possible.
Jenson Solutions was set up in 2001, by Paul Jenkinson. His previous experience was in corporate finance with both Deloitte and BDO, however, after a stint as an interim Finance Director for an AIM listed company, he felt that a career as an interim finance professional was right for him.
The reasons for this were many, but mainly inspired by the flexibility and most definitely the ability to play golf on a more regular basis. Unfortunately for Paul, this did not last long and he soon had far too much work, as such the business accidentally grew in size from a one man band to four people within a few years. Long gone were the golf days!
It was clear that a growth strategy was required, so after a lengthy strategy meeting the current partnership was born.
At this strategy meeting the employees discussed what it was that professionals liked and disliked about interim work. The key factors people seemed to like about interim work were the flexibility, challenge and variety, being the master of ones own destiny was also a key factor, however, always with an upside there are downsides, mainly, the flow of work.
We have found that the best way of generating business is by referral, however, this requires networks to be maintained, not always easy when you are not a born salesman. Therefore, it was felt that a network structure would be the most beneficial. This invovles bringing together a number of like minded people, with a diverse but related set of skills who can refer work to each other knowing that the person you are referring work to has the necessary skills and resource to perform the work to the high degree that brand maintenance requires.
So, the above history brings us to where we are today. A team with a diverse range of skills and expertise, all with a common goal – to provide expert and considered finance resources to SMEs.
"Since 2009, Jenson Solutions has provided us with an outsourced accounting service and carried out financial modeling on an ad hoc basis. The service has been very flexible: initially providing basic book-keeping and a part-time financial controller; as the business developed we have taken some responsibilities in-house and now use Jenson Solutions for a part-time FD. The services provided have been of a high quality; the FD is seen as a full member of the management team and is responsive to our needs in a very timely manner. We are happy to recommend the services of Jenson Solutions."

"We have worked with Jenson Solutions since May 2009. From the first day we felt we were in very capable hands. The team have always provided us with a superior level of service for all the financial outsourcing we had asked them to handle but also the financial aspects of the company that we hadn’t thought to ask but are nevertheless critical to the growth of our company. They are flexible, approachable, skilled at making the complex understandable, and feel like a fully paid up member of our management team. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them."
