What success looks like
In your first month, we will give you the full induction so that you understand the company culture and meet all of your cross-functional partners. We will ensure that you have all the tools that you need to be successful. You will work closely with Mark, our CFO to get a full understanding of the role, and Simon, the CEO so that you have a full understanding of FrankieOne’s mission and vision. Day-to-day you will work closely with Mark to understand the requirements and responsibilities of the role, and get a clear picture of the status quo and where we need to get to.
In month two, you will be entrenched in the day-to-day activities in the role and will be working closely with the CFO to build out best practices in each of the key areas: financial planning, management accounting, billing & invoicing, and reporting.
By month three you will be super comfortable with the role and will be leading the day-to-day activities in the finance team and supporting the CFO in all our finance functions across the business.
You will be reporting to Mark Powell, FrankieOne’s CFO. Mark Powell joined FrankieOne as the first employee and has worn many hats as the company has grown over the last 2 years. Before joining, Mark spent 11 years in investment banking roles in Sydney and New York, and brings a breadth of experience across finance, operations and leadership roles.
You will spend time with Simon Costello, FrankieOne’s CEO. Simon initially started his career in investment banking though has since successfully founded 3 further startups across Europe (www.streetbees.com), Asia (www.hyphengroup.io) and Australia (bopple.com), collectively raising over $200m in capital. Simon is a bit of a hippy at heart, rides his bicycle everywhere, lives in the North and his pride and joy is his vegetable patch and wormery.
The full-time role will be based in our Docklands, Melbourne office. As mentioned above, we have a flexible work-from-home policy after onboarding, though we believe spending some days in the office creates a vibrant office culture and team collaboration / problem-solving.
Our interview process will involve a series of interviews with the senior management team at FrankieOne and a case study.
