Our client is an early-stage technology company seeking an IPO in Q4 2021. The business offers a logistics marketplace via an innovative platform that combines technology with intelligent algorithms to provide quick, efficient solutions at disruptor level prices.

Description

We are currently seeking a Non-Executive Director and Audit Committee Chair to join the Board in preparation for the company’s admission to AIM. The appointee will be expected to set the Audit Committee agenda and understand and take a strategic view on how to tackle the risks facing the business. They should make sure that the triangle of Audit Committee Chair, CFO, and the external Audit Partner, work openly and effectively. They should be prepared to hold the CFO to account while supporting them and challenge the External Audit Partner to seek out opinions and obtain clear explanations, whilst keeping the Board Chair and CEO informed on significant issues as they arise. Good quality feedback to the wider Board is essential. As the custodian of ‘true and fair’, they will also be the true representative of the shareholders.

Skills

We are seeking qualified accountants with good prior PLC experience, whether main market or AIM and these two criteria are essential. Prior technology sector experience is not essential, nor is experience gained in a start-up. If anything, quality of prior company and experience of “what good looks like” is of paramount importance. Candidates should feel comfortable preparing and managing an agenda and have the gravitas and transparency necessary to form positive and productive relationships with key stakeholders. Independence of thought and robustness of character, combined with mentoring skills in working within an entrepreneurial, early-stage environment would be highly advantageous.

This is an interesting opportunity to join an early-stage technology company, with a very exciting future as it prepares for listing and beyond.

Please note, this opportunity is 2 days a month, based in Central London.
