Our client is a highly entrepreneurial, international pharmaceutical start-up. The company focuses on development, manufacture and distribution of specialised pharmaceuticals and is establishing itself as the leader in its field across Europe. Combining scientific leadership, state of the art production and a network of strategic supply and distribution agreements, the business is capitalising on the increasing demand for its products. A highly experienced group of established investors will lead an IPO in early 2020, providing further capital to continue growing the business.

We are seeking a qualified accountant who can demonstrate proven experience working with high-growth, entrepreneurial businesses. Reporting to the CEO & Co-Founder, the role will take overall responsibility for all aspects of finance, leading and developing an established team.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic background, will be naturally inquisitive and must be motivated by the opportunity to join a highly entrepreneurial business in a new and high profile market. You will need the ability to balance complex detail with wider commercial matters, have experience establishing new processes & procedures, and demonstrate first class communication skills.
