Our internal mantra is ‘never settle’ and we all share an ambition to grow this business. This is your opportunity to join a scaleup rocketing upward to become a robust financial services company.

  • Staying abreast of the evolving needs of the business, competitive landscape and emerging trends and implementing and adapting systems and processes as needs evolve;
  • Lead on the financial aspects of M&A initiatives and strategic projects such as financial modelling and analysis, due diligence and collaborating with external advisors;

  • Experience in advisory and in-house FP&A and Commercial Finance or Strategy roles, with a strong preference on working at a fast-paced company
  • Experience managing motivated finance professionals
