PQ Management Accountant | High Growth Tech Start-Up | London / Remote

We are delighted to be working with one of London's newest and most innovative tech start-ups looking to pave the way to net zero in the UK and further afield as the company scales. They are an extremely mission driven business, currently undergoing a series A fundraise where they hope to bring in just under £2m to supercharge their growth and integrate the business into more verticals in the market.

They are now looking for an ambitious newly qualified candidate to help the company professionalise the finance function and set up processes and controls to ensure best practice as they continue to scale.

The leadership team are young, incredibly smart entrepreneurs who are keen to bring in like minded people to enhance their culture and own a piece of the pie as an instrumental part of a rapidly growing team. The offices are based in East London and there will be a part home / office split with a lot flexibility towards remote working for those who are more bound by geographical location.

The ambition is to rapidly ramp up revenue at the start of 2022 after further funding and greater product development so this is an amazing opportunity for a newly qualified candidate to really supercharge their career and see some real tangible progression very quickly!

This will be a very "hands on" role so needs someone who isn't afraid to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in. This is a sole finance role initially in a small team of sub 20 people so people that have had experience working in start-up environments and small teams will fare well here!
