Roles 1 min read

This is a great opportunity to join the board and lead the finance function of a highly successful and profitable, well established disruptive innovator in the FS/Business Services sector. The business has grown significantly over the last three years and has attracted support from an external investor with ambitious plans to take advantage of exciting new markets and revenue streams.

The role will include supporting the Board and the business by: providing regular and timely management information to enable decision making; managing all the reporting relationships and requirements; advising on and refining the systems, procedures and controls to manage the finance function more efficiently; developing the data centre and CRM systems; leading day to day operations to deliver ongoing efficiencies and taking the lead in M&A. You will also be the key conduit between all the stakeholders and funders and play an important role in supporting the CEO in 3rd party relationships, particularly with its array of blue-chip strategic, commercial partners.

To be successful in this role, you will be a fully qualified finance professional with a strong operational background in either financial services or possibly software/business services. You will be a commercial, hands on operator, with proven experience in a high growth SME business (£20m-£100m) and be able to juggle the strategic elements of a Board role alongside the day to day requirements of the business very effectively. You will possess strong leadership skills, coupled with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, a natural coaching and mentoring style towards the professional development of your team. 

This is a high-volume service led, transactional environment and requires an individual who has gained experience in managing a similar business through a high growth phase. It is a fantastic opportunity to deliver added value to an already successful business and to make your mark within the PE world.
