Contract Type
Full Time

Our exclusive client is a private equity backed, technology business. It is well established and a leader in many of its chosen markets. The business has enjoyed strong, yet controlled, growth in recent years which puts it in a good position for further growth and development.

This is an all-encompassing main board role which, alongside the usual scope of financial management and control, carries the following key responsibilities:

  • Review current MI and Board Reports and deliver enhancements where appropriate.
  • Maintain relationships with Banks, Equity Providers, Trade Insurers and other Professional Advisers.
  • Statutory accounting and compliance.
  • Act as Company Secretary and ensure compliance with all HMRC regulations.
  • Lead the finance and HR functions.
  • Negotiate and manage trade credit facilities.
  • Work with board colleagues in identifying and investigating commercial opportunities including potential acquisitions.

Appropriate candidates will be fully qualified accountants with a strong academic background and previous experience of Private Equity relationships. You will have strong technical skills and be highly competent in MS office. Sector experience is less important but a background in IT or technology would be advantageous as would experience in businesses working with significant trade creditors.

Remuneration includes a competitive salary plus car allowance, equity / LTIP opportunity and other benefits.

It is likely that, in time, the business will undergo some form of corporate transaction and the new CFO must be equipped to lead such a process.
