- £120,000 + bonus
Our client is a unique, well-funded startup with approaching 300 employees and dual headquarters in London and New York. Operating in the field of high-performance sport, involved in the organisation of international events, and with extensive broadcasting rights, the business has a truly global reach in what is a fast-paced, innovative, and high-profile environment.
Reporting to the CFO, we are currently seeking to recruit a Global Finance Director to be based in London and take responsibility for all aspects of mainstream finance and the management of a global finance team of seven. This is a highly autonomous role and prior experience gained coordinating teams in a multi-site, international environment would be advantageous.
Candidates will be qualified accountants, with strong attention to detail, able to both think strategically and be prepared to operate in a hands-on fashion, when required, in what is still an SME environment. They should possess excellent communication and influencing skills and feel comfortable working via telephone and video conference with other international offices, particularly in the US. A basic understanding of US tax or an understanding of the questions to ask would also be very useful. Commercial exposure gained in sports, broadcasting, events, sponsorship, and hospitality retail would also be helpful.
