Key responsibilities:

  • Oversee the finance function to include ensuring that robust systems, processes and controls are established to support the predicted revenue growth
  • Manage relationships with lenders, Investors and other Third parties and Stakeholders
  • Lead fundraising
  • Oversee Compliance and Corporate Governance
  • Be able to add commercial advice to all Contract negotiations such as with distribution partners
  • Create meaningful management information to assist in all commercial decision making

The ideal candidate will be a pro-active, go-get finance professional who is excited by the prospect of a fast paced high growth opportunity. Previous experience of XERO would be helpful but is not a selection criteria. Similarly previous experience of the insurance industry is not necessary. Far more important is experience of working in a scale-up situation ideally in a tech led organisation. Furthermore it is essential that the successful candidate has excellent and proven excel modelling skills which are clearly demonstrable. In addition, fundraising and M&A experience would be very helpful.

This is a fantastic Board level opportunity to join an ambitious, fast paced business at the start of what is expected to be an impressive growth journey culminating in a successful exit for stakeholders.
