Chief Financial Officer

Agritech / Biotech

Ref: DC52816

Oxford Science Park
£150,000 - £200,000 + bonus + equity

Our client is a leading Agritech/Biotech business that is revolutionising the future of agriculture in its field of expertise. With a successful Series B fund raising completed last year, from a group of supportive and experienced investors and with a high-quality management team, the business is well positioned for the next stage in its development.


To assist in supporting these ambitious plans, we are seeking to recruit a high-quality CFO to join the team and take responsibility for all aspects of finance. Reporting to the CEO, the successful candidate should be able to be both a strategic business partner, capable of playing a leading role in future funding rounds, whilst happy to perform a ‘hands-on’ finance role and leading a small in-house team. This is a key management appointment, in a high-performing environment where individuals are encouraged to take ownership, work together to solve problems, and take action to keep the team moving forward through the next stage of growth.


Applicants should be experienced finance professionals with a background of managing finance in early stage, complex businesses and ideally have helped take similar businesses through later stage fundraising rounds. The business will remain pre-revenue for some years to come and candidates should be able to take a long-term view, managing the bigger picture as well as the day-to-day details of finance in a start-up. You should be genuinely excited and have a passion about contributing to the development of the business, working with a leading scientific team, and partnering the CEO to map the company’s path in creating a company that is advancing science and building something transformative to solve an urgent problem that threatens the viability and security of food production across the world.


To apply for this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively, email your CV to David Craig: quoting reference DC52816.

Please note that due to the expected volume of applications we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. If you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
