Strategic Finance Manager | Fintech start-up | Venture capital-backed | Central Manchester
Axon Moore is exclusively representing a VC-backed, fintech start-up that is looking to hire a Strategic Finance Manager as it prepares to launch.
With a genuinely innovative and disruptive technology platform, significant funding recently secured and very successful entrepreneurs at the helm, the business is about to launch and primed to take off. With plans to become a market leader within three years, there is the opportunity to gain unrivalled experience and the successful applicant could find themselves in a senior leadership role of a market leader with an enviable track record of achievements and exposure in less than three years.
Reporting directly into an extremely high calibre CFO, this role would represent the commercial No.2 and would be tasked with developing the modelling and commercial finance capability within the business, rather than relying on external advisors, to support the executive team’s decision making and helping to prepare the business for growth. Initially the role would be “hands on” working closely with the CFO to develop the commercial insight, but there are plans to rapidly grow the team in the medium term.
Although soft skills and general intellect will be the key drivers, applicants should:
- Be a qualified accountant (0-5 yrs), ideally trained in practice
- Possess strong strategic/commercial instincts, coupled with strong modelling skills
- Be ambitious and adaptable with a desire to join a dynamic business on the ground floor and play a hands on role in building a market leader
- Exposure to a deal making role i.e. corporate finance or transaction services is advantageous although not essential
