An exciting Fintech business is looking for a Finance Director to support them with the next phase of their growth. This would be their first permanent Finance Director appointment and will report to the board. The business has now grown to a point where they need some high quality financial and commercial support so it is the perfect time to hire an up and coming Finance Director.
The Finance Director will take over a small team but will have the remit to assess the capabilities of the function and define which aspects should also be brought in-house as some areas are currently outsourced. This may also include hiring and growing the team and the Finance Director will be given the autonomy to drive this.
The Finance Director will have full ownership of the Finance function and will naturally be expected to ensure that all financial reporting, controls and process is of the highest standard. However, most importantly they will be expected to partner with the business including working closely with Sales, Commercial, Marketing, the Board, HR, legal and Operations to provide first rate support. The Finance Director will also be expected to proactively identify areas for improvement for example cost saving initiatives, commercial and revenue enhancing opportunities or process re-design.
The Finance Director will also have responsibility for financial sign off on deals and will be expected to provide support with regards to pricing and modeling of bids.
This is a superb opportunity to join one of London's most exciting Fintech organisations. The ideal candidate will be a qualified finance professional (ACA / ACCA / CIMA or equivalent) with strong experience leading a team, ideally within a Technology, Software or similar Fintech business.
