We are currently seeking to recruit a CFO for the UK business, which is the main trading entity. Business partnering the UK CEO, the successful candidate will have full responsibility for finance as well as broader commercial input into all aspects of the UK business. This will include business planning, commercial finance, financial information and reporting, risk management and banking relationships. It is intended that the finance function will work collaboratively with all business units within the company to support them with timely and insightful information so as to enable informed business decisions. The CFO will also take on responsibility for Human Resources and, at least initially, offer support on accounting and finance matters at Group level that may include looking at investment requests, M&A, strategic joint ventures and fund raising initiatives.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant who has previously worked within the financial services sector or a related sector and has preferably experience of dealing with regulated authorities. It is essential that you possess the required mind-set to work in a ‘hands on’ role in a smaller, more entrepreneurial style company and have genuine breadth of experience across all aspects of finance.
This is a very exciting opportunity, with a well-funded and increasingly established fintech start up and offers a well-rounded commercial CFO the opportunity to take on an autonomous role in an agile and fast paced environment.
To apply for this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively, contact Louise Jeffrey at Walker Hamill, quoting reference LJ50976.

We are sorry, but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
