Financial Controller – start-up

£70K / Perm

Accountancy Action are looking for an impressive Financial Controller to head up the finance function of a Tech/SAAS start-up.

This role will be the first “in-house” finance role and will require someone who is happy to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, as you’ll be tasked with creating a high performing finance function from the ground up.

Partnering with the CEO on finance strategies whilst putting in place finance controls, budgets and forecasts as well as monthly and statutory reporting.

Day to day role will include;

  • Moving the finance function internally from the current outsourced practice
  • Creation of finance function, including processes and procedures
  • Strategic planning with the CEO
  • Management reporting, budgeting and forecasting
  • Financial modelling, creating detailed models on various scenarios
  • AP & AR functions / VAT returns and tax filing
  • Future development of the finance team as the business grows

Ideally you will possess;

  • Accountancy Qualification – ACA/ACCA
  • Experience in a start-up environment
  • Prior experience setting up a finance function from scratch
  • Strong operational and strategic experience
  • Experience within a SAAS/Tech business is preferred

The salary for the role will depend on the experience and individual candidate but will be around £70,000 per annum.

This is a great opportunity for someone to come in and make a real impact on a fast growing business. You’ll have the autonomy to create a high class finance function and partner with the CEO, providing insight for key decision making.

If you have the required experience and like the sound of the role, please get in touch.
