    Commercial Financial Controller | Ed-Tech Social Enterprise

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting exclusively for one of Europe's fastest growing start-ups. Located in an amazing architect-designed office, the business have been hitting the headlines recently for their highly-innovative approach to Education technology and training. 'Ed-Tech' and Learning and Development is one of the top 3 hottest sectors for VC investment and these guys are at the forefront!

    The role

    You will be joining the business as the number one in Finance with a clear path to becoming Finance Director within a short time frame. The successful candidates will spend much of your time at Board Level focusing upon strategy, funding, FP&A, working capital management, compliance and commercial negotiations and reviews. It is therefore essential that you have a real eye for detail not solely related to figures.

    Although it is not an essential requirement that you have personally led a fund raise (Angel, Private Equity or Venture Capital), you will be directly involved in fundraising activities within the first few months of this role. An ability to confidently present and justify financial figures and forecasts is therefore essential.

    The team are great fun and very intellectually gifted. So this will suit a candidate who is a quick lateral thinker, who also enjoys the social side of things.

    What we need to see (Essential)

    * Recent experience within a start-up or scale-up business, preferably with some kind of online marketplace, digital product or SAAS element.
    * Genuine interest in education and/or social justice.
    * Great communication skills and a strong educational background.

    What we'd like to see (Bonus)

    * Fully qualified ACA (strong preference) ,ACCA or CIMA
    * Previous experience (voluntary or paid) within an NGO or Education-related organisation

    Salary: 60-67k base + 10k bonus, 26 days holiday + Bank Holidays + Big social scene
