Finance Manager | Fast Growth VC Backed Tech Platform | Central London
We are delighted to be working exclusively with a VC backed Tech platform who are looking for a relatively newly qualified Finance Manager as they scale. Growing incredibly quickly, the company saw revenue grow from £4m in 2019 to £8m in 2020 (Year 3). They are on track to do almost £20m in 2021!
Having just moved into a spectacular new office of their own with plenty of room for expansion they saw headcount double in 2020 to circa 80. Based in Central London they are looking to add to their young, ambitious team who are motivated by having a real impact in the success of a scaling business. Crucially they want to have lot of fun in the process! They are a down to earth, sociable bunch with a healthy approach to work-life balance despite the incredibly fast paced environment!
Their product is innovative and is disrupting an industry which is yet to properly be impacted by the Tech revolution. In the midterm they will also be launching a SaaS based solution. Backed by one of London's major VC funds they have raised substantial Series A Investment which will support a city by city based expansion across the UK and into Europe in 2021/22.

It will sit across day-to-day Finance, month-end reporting, Management Accounting and Commercial Finance (FP&A and Budgeting)
