Group Financial Controller
Our client is an exciting, unique and rapidly growing London-based property development and investment group specialising in build-to-own, design-led, operational properties. Their USP is its blend of in-house property, design, branding, marketing and operations experience. Central to the group’s future plans are a number of prospective joint venture / advisory mandates with national and international brands that will further raise the group profile. The company’s typical development is hotel-led, mixed-use with own-brand and/or third-party restaurant and bar uses with the group looking to branch out into the co-working spaces, mostly outside of London. Our client’s sister group operates “Coworking Spaces” within either their or third-party owned properties.
