Chief Financial Officer

Private Equity Backed Technology

Ref: MR52267

£Six Figure Basic + Bonus + Equity

Our client is a private equity backed Technology group that has recently attracted a significant new institutional investor and is primed for the next stage in its highly successful growth story. The business currently has revenues approaching £20m, but is growing quickly, is highly profitable and is commencing an acquisitions programme in a niche market, currently worth over $2.5bn, which is currently showing 42% compound growth. The group is now looking to recruit a Chief Financial Officer to work closely with the senior leadership team to deliver on its strategic plan and prepare the business for a further transaction in the next 3 years.


As the CFO, you will act as a true business partner, offering sustained commercial, financial, and operational input at Board level to the CEO and broader management team. You will have full responsibility for all aspects of finance and play a crucial role in ensuring the structure and capabilities of the finance team are appropriate to support the future growth of the company. You will additionally have an influential part in working with and presenting to the private equity investor. The CFO will be further required to take a hands-on approach in what is currently still a small business, but will have the potential to grow with the company as it dramatically scales up to what is expected to be a very significant transaction in the mid-term. 


The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with experience of partnering an entrepreneurial management team in a private equity backed business. A clear preference exists for an individual who has been through a successful exit, with a minimum expectation of having completed a number of bolt-on M&A transactions. It is essential that you are able to demonstrate the ability to operate at senior level with a proven track record of strategic thinking and a hands-on, 'can-do' attitude to driving business growth.


To apply for this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively, email your CV to Mark Richards: quoting reference MR52267.

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.
