Rapidly growing start up business
Assist entrepreneurial owners achieve expansion plans
About Our Client
Our client is lead by ambitious and entrepreneurial shareholders who are experienced and well known operators in their sector. Significant investment has been made in the business and headcount continues to increase to satisfy growing demand and market opportunity. Based in central Brighton, the role will require the CFO to operate in partnership with CEO and owners as they look to establish the business and continue to take market share.
This will be a commercial, hands-on and very varied CFO role. As you would expect of a recent start-up there is still much to be done around infrastructure build; people, systems and processes. The nature of business means this will be a fast-paced role; a high number of transactions are processed on a daily basis and you'll need to have demonstrable experience of working a similar environment. You will be expected to get in to the detail when required as the business will need a strong guide to steer it through growing pains. Equally, modelling skills and a high level of commercial acumen are critical as the Directors will be looking at new ventures and opportunities for further growth regularly.
The Successful Applicant
The ideal candidate will have operated as FD/CFO in a growing SME business previously. We are looking for someone who can demonstrate where they have worked, supported and, when required, challenged highly-ambitious owners in the past. Delivery of a high calibre accounts function is paramount so you'll need to be prepared to take a hands on approach in the medium term. By the same token, we require someone who can also elevate themselves above the day to day to ensure the correct strategic decisions are taken.
What's on Offer
£100,000-£120,000 depending on experience.
