Chief Operating Officer
- Fully Remote
- £Six Figure Basic + Bonus + Equity
Our client is a privately owned, highly profitable EdTech company that is currently at an advanced stage in securing private equity funding. With a high-quality management team, a strong position in a growing market and an ambitious new investor to shortly be announced, the business is poised to embark on the next stage of its growth story.
To support this growth, we are currently seeking to recruit an ambitious COO to join the management team. Operations currently fall under the responsibility of the CEO/Founder, supported by the CFO, and the business would benefit from an e-Commerce specialist, used to executing and ‘getting things done’ in what is a wide-ranging role, in a highly entrepreneurial environment. Prior experience gained in an early-stage e-Commerce business, perhaps as a CEO/Founder or member of a senior management team would be highly advantageous, but of key importance is the right mindset to operate in and continually seek to improve all aspects of operations in a fast-paced high growth company. You can also expect to have significant involvement in supporting both organic and acquisitive growth, acting as a business partner to both the Founder and the CFO. The company is strategically aligned to make significant acquisitions within its sector.
Candidates should be proactive, strategic, possess drive and have a genuine interest in improving the way businesses operate. Experience in the use of data in developing an e-Commerce business would be highly advantageous, as would a willingness to try new approaches, continually being curious and open to innovation. Given the intention to significantly enhance organic growth with selective acquisitions, candidates will ideally have prior experience in this area, both in terms of deal experience and in the integration of acquisitions.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful, high growth and highly profitable business, with a high quality, motivated and driven management team, in a truly wide-ranging commercial role.
