A very rapidly growing Technology business based in the States is looking for a Finance Director to head up their International business. The Finance Director will work in direct partnership with the Managing Director to drive the business forwards and continue to facilitate growth. The Finance Director will report to the leadership team in the States but will work quite autonomously the majority of the time.
This is a very hands on role and requires someone with the ability to flip effortlessly between the day to day accounting side of the role and then back into providing strategic support to the business. A key facet of the role in the initial 6-9 months will be to implement improved processes and systems in order to really get to grips with the key challenges the business faces. This will enable the Finance Director to better understand the key drivers of the organisation and therefore support the business better from a strategic perspective.
The business is growing at an incredible rate so this is a brilliant opportunity to be involved in an exciting period of expansion. The Finance Director will play a crucial part in driving the International business and take on a key role in negotiations, investment appraisal, modelling commercial initiatives and investigating new potential commercial ventures.
This is a highly commercial role but also one with a solid core finance element. The Finance Director will manage a small team but will have a remit to scope and build out a larger team in line with business requirements.
The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant with significant experience operating at a Finance Director level. Experience within the Technology or Media sectors would be hugely preferable.
