A high growth Fintech business operating in the online money transfer industry is looking for a Financial Controller. The Financial Controller will be the number one in Finance and will report directly to the Board. Therefore the Financial Controller will need first rate communication skills and the natural gravitas to operate at this level.

The Financial Controller will manage a small Finance function of four people with potential to expand the team in line with company growth. This role is the number one position in Finance and is expected to grow into a full Finance Director role. Therefore the business is keen to hire someone ambitious and driven to progress quickly.

The position will be an all encompassing Finance role covering all core month end aspects, responsibility for financial planning, budgeting, forecasting and managing cash flow but also playing a key role in the commercial side of the business. For example, this individual take the lead on building business cases, appraising potential investment opportunities (such as in technology, commercial partnerships or new ventures) and partner closely with the main stakeholders around the organisation such as the Sales Director, Ops Director, Technology, Legal and HR to help them run their business areas better.

This is a unique opportunity for someone with 3-4 years experience as a Financial Controller to step up, take on more responsibility, gain autonomy and accelerate their career path.

In order to apply you must be a fully qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA / CIMA or equivalent) with post-qualified experience as a Financial Controller. Line management responsibility is important although stepping up from managing 1-2 people would be fine. Industry background is not important and the client will consider candidates from any sector including Tech, Media, Consumer or Financial Services.
