I am working with three clients who are looking to hire No1/No2 Finance Roles in High Growth SMEs

The first opportunity is based in South East London for an online retailer. The business has won numerous awards and has a focus on sustainable and recyled products. This will a No1 position reporting directly into the Founder. The business has received a huge amount of investment and is embarking on some exciting projects next year such as a replatform of their website to encourage more direct sales - the bulk of their revenue currently comes from selling their products through the likes of Amazon and Ocado. This is a really lovely business with a strong ethos and I'm very excited to be working with them.

The second opportunity is based in Shoreditch and is partnering with an online platform who sell products globally. They were founded over 10 years ago and are now looking to hire a No1 in finance who will report directly into their Founders. The platform is doing extremely well and they predict continued growth over the coming years. This will very much be a hybrid role where you will be responsible for the entire function and managing a team of six but you will also be advising the Founders on investment and strategic decisions.

The third one is based in Angel and is a high end sportswear brand reporting into the Head of Finance. You will be managing a small team who sit globally. They've seen 40% growth YOY and sell their products internationally. A passion for sport would be ideal but what is more important is your hands on, technical skill set. This role will be encompassing all of finance so you will be responsible for a wide remit of tasks including posting journals, balance sheet recs but also assisting with strategic decisions which the business looks to make.

For the No1/No2 Finance Roles in High Growth SMEs, I am looking for candidates who are/have:

  • Fully qualified or QBE (Accountancy qualification can be ACA, ACCA or CIMA)
  • Retail or FMCG experience ideally
  • Management experience
  • Ability to work in a fun, fast paced and challenging environment

If you're interested in the No1/No2 Finance Roles in High Growth SMEs please apply asap as we will be scheduling interviews for January.
