Chief Financial Officer
International Start Up in High Growth Sector
- £150,000 + Bonus + Share Incentives
Our client is an innovative, green-technology manufacturing business based in London with intended operations in Germany and the potential to expand into other European locations over time. The company is a start-up and is currently in the pre-production phase. It has already secured significant private investment and seeks to begin production in 2025. It envisages achieving a strong market position in what is a key stage within the global electric battery supply chain.
We are currently seeking to recruit an experienced finance professional and qualified accountant to partner with the CEO on all commercial activities and lead and develop the finance function as the company grows and commences production. The successful candidate will be required to cover a broad range of finance responsibilities, including the setting up of proper processes and controls, generating accurate management information, and developing the nascent finance team. The successful candidate would also be expected to help manage the structuring of the company's debt and maintain appropriate relations with key investors. This is a great opportunity for an experienced finance professional to join an innovative, early-stage company at a key stage in the company’s development.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with significant experience ideally gained with both larger ‘best practice’ international groups and ideally more recent experience gained with smaller early stage companies in a more ‘hands on’ role. Experience gained in either the manufacturing or commodities sectors is not a prerequisite, but would be useful. Most importantly we require a well-rounded, team player, willing and able to carry out whatever tasks are required in what is a collegial and highly motivated team environment.
