Head of Finance | £65,000 - £75,000 + Bonus | Chorley | Private Equity Backed Start Up | High Growth Technology Business


Axon Moore has exclusively partnered with a high growth technology business in Chorley that is newly Private Equity Backed. The founders and investors are looking for an experienced Financial Controller who is looking to secure their first time Finance Director or Head of Finance position.


The successful Head of Finance will work closely with investors to understand their reporting requirements and strategy for growing the business. They will subsequently be responsible for rolling out their expansion plan from a grassroots level, which will involve building a robust finance department from scratch and implementing the necessary controls and processes quickly ahead of them growing. As they expand, the Head of Finance will need to grow a high performing team that can release them to focus more on the commercial performance and the strategic positioning of the business. The founders need a strong finance leader who will lead this development forwards whilst also representing the business with external stakeholders.


Candidates must have:
  • Either a practice background before industry (ACA / ACCA) or have Financial Controller experience in a similar VC/PE backed SME with exposure to investors.
  • Proven experience of building and implementing a strong control environment from scratch
  • Demonstrable commercial acumen with a strong track record of success
  • The potential to comfortably transition into a number one role in finance that will operate at a strategic level
  • Any exposure to founders and/or external investors previously will be a great advantage
