Our client is a venture capital backed start-up, founded in 2015, that has raised significant equity funding and is changing the face of its niche in the digital market in which it operates. Its ecommerce platform offers a sophisticated user experience and delivers beautiful products, on-demand and all over the world.

The business is now looking to grow its finance team with a Financial Controller, who will report into the Chief Financial Officer. Most Finance functions are currently out-sourced, so initially the role will focus on co-ordinating and managing teams of financial advisors, as well as working with the senior leadership team to understand their future requirements. There will also be exposure to business analytics, fundraising and other strategic initiatives as well as operational finance. Over time there will be the opportunity to lead the build-out and management of the in-house finance function.

We are looking for a qualified accountant with a strong academic background who wants to be part of something new, fresh and extremely innovative. The cultural fit will be crucial - you should be driven to join a highly entrepreneurial team with a passion of growth. You will need to be able to demonstrate technical ability, an analytical mindset, a ‘can-do’ attitude, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves, whilst at the same time have the confidence to communicate effectively across all levels of the business, and possibly deputise for the CFO when required.

Interested parties should click "Apply", quoting reference MR49943 for a confidential conversation.
