Our client is a leading player in the educational sector, a pioneer in the international student market with a far-reaching and dynamic service offering that benefits educational institutions, agents and individual students.

Still a young business, but having attracted substantial investment from a global finance house, the company has already established a presence in several overseas locations and is preparing to embark upon a structured programme of international growth.

To support the founder and CEO, a high calibre Finance Director is required who will be instrumental in building and developing the finance function, a role that includes the complete management of three services: a) Escrow Operations (b) Asset Management and (c) General Finance, and where responsibility on a worldwide basis will ultimately be assumed.

To this end, the successful candidate will work closely with the CEO and the Board to establish operations to manage finance for several thousand education institutions totalling in excess of £100bn of fees in escrow.

To succeed in this high profile role, you will need to evidence the following:

  • The ability to build strong relationships between the finance function and other areas of the business
  • A proven track record of building and developing high performance teams
  • Experience of creating and managing financial models
  • Capable of managing Bank relationships
  • Attention to detail and the ability to produce and disseminate financial information with clarity and precision
  • A hands-on approach and a strong operational focus

This is a key hire and requires an experienced, qualified accountant who is comfortable working within a smaller company environment but where growth is expected to be rapid, with the culmination of an exit by way of IPO.
