We‘re still considering our shortlist. Suitably experienced candidates invited to apply ASAP.

Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Chief Finance Officer (CFO) - Plymouth - Exceptional Six figure package, excellent profit related bonus, EMI Scheme + executive benefits  

Not all CFO opportunities that cross our desks are created equal. In fact, when broken down most are actually operational Finance Director roles. What we have here is a true CFO role and what’s more, a genuine career and a life changing opportunity… Now these are the assignments that make a finance recruiters’ working life worth living. 

Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been exclusively engaged by a business that is seriously going places… and at an astronomical pace. A series-B start up with serious external investment clout and with a realistic forecast of £20M t/o and £9M EBITDA in the first year of trading alone. 

The company: 

A truly revolutionary renewables business that has caught the attention of investors across the globe and with secure and long term partnerships already agreed with an impressive portfolio of clients across the UK. A business with the potential to lead an utterly untapped market place. Headed up by a very, very experienced board team, these guys realise their place in the market.  

Almost quadrupling in size over the past twelve months, the tier 1 team recognise the need for an experienced and ambitious CFO to join the team.

The role: 

Joining the business at board level and working closely alongside a highly motivated CEO and executive team, the incoming CFO will enjoy a strategically and commercially focussed role. The business already employs a small but efficient finance function where the operational financial controls are led by an experienced Head of Finance. Key responsibilities of this role: 

- Provide high quality strategic leadership working closely with the board team and assuming overall management of the company’s financial health  

- Full capital management, negotiating funding options and strategic partnerships

- Play a key role in capital raising initiatives

- Develop and maintain investor relations 

- Lead on CLN’s

- Ensure sound financial reporting and compliance 

- Develop high quality FP&A systems, processes and financial controls 

- Risk management through r=the development of high quality budgets and forecasts  

The person: 

Undoubtedly a professionally qualified individual (ACA/ACCA), with proven experience operating at CFO level, or potentially a seasoned and ambitious Finance Director seeking a strategically focussed role with a strong focus on investor engagement. Previous experience gained in the renewables sector would be highly advantageous but by no means a pre-requisite. Previous experience of driving an IPO would a fantastic skillset to bring to the table.

The successful candidate will possess exceptional financial acumen and demonstrable experience in delivering strategic financial management. The CFO should have a flair for leadership with ability to motivate and mentor a rapidly expanding team. Needless to say, superb internal and external relationship building skills will be a pre-requisite. 

Caught your attention? It should have - this is a genuinely exciting opportunity. For a confidential discussion and to apply, please contact Alex Callister quoting reference AC9922. Our client is motivated to appoint for this role without delay and shortlisted candidates can expect a fast turnaround from submission to initial meeting.
