Director of Finance
Our client in a rapidly expanding software and technology solutions business with current revenues of £15m and operations in the UK and US. The business has aspirations to further expand globally over the next 3-5 years and as part of that process it will undertake a fundraising exercise in the next 12-18 months, potentially seeking an IPO on AIM.
To ensure that financial management and analysis develops to support that growth in a profitable manner, a Director of Finance position has been created to support the CFO. The Director of Finance will lead the day to day financial control and management of the group, including that of its US operation and will be responsible for ensuring that the financial processes, systems and people capabilities are appropriate for a potentially listed business with global growth ambitions.
Candidates should have experience gained working within an SME environment, with a broad remit and exposure to all areas of running a high quality finance team. Technically accomplished, it is expected that the successful candidate will allow the Group to reduce reliance on its investors during any transaction process. Prior international, strong FP&A and broader commercial experience, would all be beneficial.
This is an exceptional opportunity to join an ambitious and fast paced technology company, at a crucial stage in its growth and offers the opportunity to develop a full rounded financial tool kit and gain exposure to a potential IPO.
The role will be based in London, however there will be a need to travel on occasion to other Group locations (currently New York and likely to include Europe & Asia at some point).
