Finance and Operations Manager
Venture Capital Fund
- Competitive + Carry
Our client is a start-up Venture Capital fund that is looking to add a bright, ambitious accountant to their small team following a successful first fund raise and their upcoming deployment of capital in Q2 2021.
The founders have worked together for a number of years at a prominent venture fund and have sat on the boards of multiple successful and well-known start-up success stories. As they look forward to the upcoming year, they are looking for someone to manage their back and middle office activities, allowing scope for this individual to oversee fund finance, investor relations, portfolio management and transaction support. As such this is a very unique and commercial opportunity for the properly motivated person who will have an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to work autonomously as well as part of a fast-paced and intellectual team.
If you think this could be you and you meet the following criteria please get in touch:
- Qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA accountant with no more than 3 years post-qualified experience
- Experience can be from either a practice firm (Big 4 or mid-tier) or in an alternative investment finance team
- Past exposure to Private Equity/Venture Capital is desired but not essential
- Thrive in a close-knit and top calibre team
You must be eligible to work in the UK and hold the relevant accounting qualifications.
