Your new company
An exciting startup events company is looking to hire a Financial Controller to join their growing team, and help lead their team to success. Their office is in the heart of the City of London, with a relaxed atmosphere and great opportunities within the vicinity of the office.

Your new role
You will be responsible for dealing with processes and controls improvement and systems implementation. As this is a start up company, a key part of the role will be setting up the finance department and its associated systems.

The role will also require some hands on work, and getting involved in the more strategic changes that the business will need as it grows and expands. To this end, some financial analysis work may be involved in the early stages of the role, with the potential for bringing on a FP&A manager in the near future.

What you'll need to succeed
You will need to be a team player and confident in being able to engage with senior stakeholders within the business. The board of the company hosts many well known names and faces and so being able to interact with these people, will be a large part of the role.

You will need to enjoy working with software and data analysis, and as this is a start-up; you will need to be able to deal with systems issues and take on ad-hoc work.

Previous experience in working in the leisure, or hospitality, sector will be beneficial, but is not essential.

What you'll get in return

You will be rewarded with a competitive salary of £50,000 - £70,000, with the potential for growth in this going forwards, as you lead the company to success.

The location of the office means that you will be a stone's throw away from some of the best attractions and venues in the world. Further to this, the company offers an excellent benefits package - including medical cover and a generous car allowance.
