Chief Financial Officer

 

Our client is a highly innovative business that has created an app and platform that is genuinely disrupting the temporary recruitment market.

 

Through the app, businesses can harness a network of over 10,000 fully-vetted workers “on-demand”, to help with busy periods and urgent requirements.  The technology uses an algorithm to match the job to the most suitable person (based on live location and competencies).  As such, it offers these businesses a flexible solution to staffing and hasalready proven extremely popular with companies in the Retail and Hospitality industries.

 

The business has built an extensive and growing customer base comprising a lengthy roster of major high street names.  The focus is now on expansion, initially across the UK but with international ambitions beyond that.  Alongside this, the company is pursuing new verticals that will continue to grow and diversify the customer base.

 

In order to facilitate that growth and ahead of its next fundraise, the business is bringing in more experienced individuals to complement its young, talented and dedicated team.

 

Key to this strategy is the appointment of a CFO, who will lead the financial management of the company whilst building out the function and team. Therefore, the business is looking for a fully-qualified, senior finance leader with a passion for start-ups and previous experience of working in a high-growth entrepreneurial environment.

 

This represents a rare opportunity to join an exciting and ambitious business with considerable growth potential and a compelling story to tell.  Having demonstrated its value proposition and ability to scale over the past 12 months, the company is now at a critical inflection point in its trajectory and is ideally poised to pursue its expansion plans.  For the right person, this should prove to be a challenging, rewarding and potentially career-defining role.
