    The Company

    Harmonic are delighted to be working with an international consumer goods business on the hire of their first Chief Financial Officer. The business has grown substantially in recent years and they are on the cusp of becoming a household name, having already delivered incredible growth and brand reputation within a short time frame.



    Due to recent growth, they are looking for an experienced CFO to join the business to support with the business strategy. This role will be a business partner to the Managing Director and it will be pivotal to supporting the business in reaching continued international growth. The successful hire will also be responsible for working very closely with potential investors and the leadership team.



    The offices are based in a quirky Victorian building in the heart of London. In line with the nature of the business, it is an incredibly creative environment and the business has an open, collaborative and dynamic company culture. This role will suit a hands-on CFO who enjoys working with Founders in SMEs to scale their businesses.



    The Role

    Although you will be ably supported by a Snr Financial Controller and finance team of 8, this is a true 'hands-on' CFO role, where you will be expected to deal with strategy leadership and investor relations. While also dealing with ensuring best of class FP&A analysis, process improvements and stat accounting from you and the team.

    The business will be unrecognizable within 12 months, so it is important that you thrive in an environment where growth plans are aggressive. An ability to be adaptable, operationally-minded and a passion for coaching and scaling finance teams.
