Finance Consulting

CIOVantage can review your finance needs and help you get your financial governance right. We help charities to recruit to senior finance roles and shape their finance teams. We also work with boards to help them understand their role in the financial governance of charities and make sure that they have the right information, skills and frameworks.

We help charities facing changes in their funding and financing and those thinking about mergers and collaborations.

If you’re reviewing trading subsidiaries, facing a funding challenge or considering a restructuring then our consultants can provide experienced advice and support.

IT Review & Assurance

We help charities review their IT requirements and understand how to get the most out of their IT services in a cost-effective way. We help charities to outsource IT services well and to manage outsourced IT contracts as an “intelligent client”.

CIOVantage helps charities to articulate what they need from new websites, databases and desktop services for staff and communicate effectively with specialist providers.

We bring to charities the experience to commission and manage new IT services effectively. Our consultants work with and give board’s confidence by reviewing – and helping to build – appropriate IT governance and assurance frameworks.
