Full Time
Chief Financial Officer / Finance Director - Central London - £90-120k. A successful international retail telecoms business is seeking a highly experienced C level professional to manage the finance function.

To be suitable to MUST have either a Telecoms background and/or have worked as CFO or FD already, at a growing Tech or FinTech company, of no more than 100 people.

Working at a strategic level within a relatively small international business, it is essential that you have worked at a senior level already, whilst having remained hands-on.

Considering the hands-on perspective, you will be responsible for managing the accounting processes and systems within the organisation. Your responsibilities will include, but not be limited to: managing cash flow, preparing budgets, tax returns and reports (both for the business and regulatory bodies), financial planning, forecasting, co-ordinating the audit process and ensuring compliance with financial practise and legislation.

You will also be tasked with 'fronting' many aspects of the organisation. Be prepared to hold press-briefings and attend conferences.

At a strategic level, you will be responsible for all financial planning and assisting the board regarding the future development of the business.

You will have the opportunity to expand or restructure the Finance team as you see necessary, so people and team management experience is essential. In addition to building a team within the UK, you will also be responsible for managing a small number of international reports - any experience of working in an international organisation would be beneficial, but not essential.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working for a small business, in a hands-on role.

The basic salary on offer will depend upon your level of experience, but is likely to fall within the £90,000 to £120,000 bracket.

If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, please apply with your latest CV in Word format quoting reference ASH16004JA/1 in your subject line.

PLEASE NOTE: we expect a high volume of applications for this role and therefore may not be able to respond to every application individually. You should receive an acknowledgement of your application automatically by email. We will endeavour to contact you within 48 hours if you have been shortlisted.
