Our client is a high-growth, rapidly expanding business services company with operations in the UK and overseas.

They are now seeking a hands-on CFO with a strong operational and commercial orientation who can act as a key partner to all members of the leadership team. Having an impressive blue-chip client base the business is well positioned to capture greater market share and has long tenured relationships with many of its clients, including several key clients that have been with the company for over 20 years. Having been through an MBO in 2011 the business has subsequently doubled in size and is now working planning its next phase of development

The UK CFO will be a key member of the executive leadership team and will have primary responsibility for the financial leadership of the company. The successful candidate will be responsible for ensuring that long-term business strategies are supported by effective financial strategies as well appropriate operating and financial controls, disciplines, processes and efficiencies. You will be responsible for interacting with clients, investors and other external constituents to represent the company in financial and business matters and, along with the CEO, you will be the key interface between the business and its private equity investors and banks.

Key responsibilities will include but not limited to:

• Maintain overall responsibility for the financial operations of the company including planning and analysis, cash debt management , forecasting and budgeting, accounting, reporting, treasury, audit and tax.

• Develop decision support tools and analysis to inform major strategic decisions

• Partner with the Group CFO to deliver the information requirements of investors and funders

• Provide financial support to strategic transactions including playing a key role in M&A activities, including due diligence and integration

Ideally you will have worked in a fast-paced, high growth business previously as it will be essential to be able to get a grip on the key deliverables quickly and to have a strong grasp of EBITDA. Previous experience of working in a PE backed/ leveraged business is advantageous but is not a pre-requisite.
