Finance Director to £100 000, benefits including potential equity, Leeds
Our client is a highly profitable rapidly growing digital technology business currently being invested in by an ambitious well regarded private equity house to assist in it achieving and accelerating its plans for continuing profitable growth. Entrepreneurially run by a young and talented team, it seeks to appoint a Finance Director to assist with the transaction and provide financial strength and leadership.
The individual appointed will be both highly familiar and comfortable with information technology and around the "top table". He/she will be the principal point of contact with shareholders, banks and advisors and will be expected to provide both challenge and support to the executive, bringing finance to the heart of the business agenda. The successful candidate will be analytically adept, commercially aware and be able to contribute and communicate across the business at all levels.
Comfortable in a collegiate environment with short lines of communication and an open style, this is a role that encourages the Finance Director to engage in the strategic and operational debate whilst being able to impress shareholders through providing financial rigour and commercial interpretation to the shareholders. Sector experience is less important than capability but the successful candidate will thrive in a fast paced environment and be able to manage across all aspects of finance including M&A. It would be helpful if individuals with appropriate skills are available if not immediately then in a short timescale.
