Supported by private investors our client has established a multi channel e-commerce platform to grow in a market that they have had great success before . The increasing revenues and broadening proposition creates the need to appoint a Finance Director to report to the Chief Executive and establish a finance function to challenge and support the executive.
The successful team will have a remit to develop an MI platform to underpin executive decision making and provide analysis to better understand its customer interface and importantly margin . The individual to be appointed will focus on cash and working capital management and will be expected to impact on operational performance and build quality working relationships with executive colleagues together with having a desire and mindset to understand the detail . The Finance Director will bring finance to the heart of the business agenda .
The individual appointed will have the potential to grow with the business and manage the relationship with external funders and in particular will play a central role in further fund raising . In addition as the business grows and becomes more complex the individual to be appointed will be capable of playing a broader role to underpin the Chief Executive and work across all the functions . The successful candidate will in all likelihood be a Chartered Accountant with some experience of fundraising / M&A but most of all an operationally adept , commercially savvy and with excellent interpersonal skills to successfully represent the business both externally and internally.
