I am looking for an accountant to join a reputable Venture Capital firm as a Fund Accountant. The team you would be joining is responsible for 3 business areas covering VC and Investments. As a business, they invest across multiple sectors including renewables, real estate and healthcare - investing in things that have a real life impact.

The main responsibilities of this role include partnering with the Investment teams to track key financial and operational data of the investee companies you are responsible for. You will also use your expertise to analytically consider financial results on a monthly basis and assess whether results indicate any potential issues in the portfolio. As you will learn these funds from top-to-bottom, you will in time produce the budget, cash flow and liquidity forecasts too.

There are strong business partnering elements within this role, building relationships with investment managers to ensure the smooth running of the funds. In short - this role is highly commercial, and is an exceptional opportunity for someone making their first move after qualifying as an accountant.

Experience: -

  • Recently qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA / CIMA)
  • FS experience (desirable but not essential)
  • Exceptional interpersonal skills with proven stakeholder management
  • Understanding and willingness to get involved and understand the details of their role
