    The role will involve strategic leadership in that you will need to plan out both the as-is and to-be structure of your department, whilst also anticipating increasing requirements for reporting and compliance. You need to have a strong affinity with cutting edge Fintech as the revenue streams, costs and risks to the business are all intertwined with the blockchain technology.
    What you need (essential):

    * Successful career to-date working as a CFO/FD (within a startup technology environment for some of your career)
    * Qualified or Chartered status
    * At least 12 months direct experience within Fintech
    * Past experience of effectively reporting into external investors (Angel & VC)
    * Ability to improve the structure of financial reporting (internal and external) for the business.
    * Demonstrable background of structuring and building high-quality, but lean, finance teams.

    What we'd like to see (not essential):

    * Experience of working in a business (or business unit) where blockchain or crypto-currencies have been at the forefront
    * Some understanding (at a non-technical, functional level) of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning would be helpful
    * Some understanding (at a non-technical, functional level) of biometrics would be helpful

    Duration: 6 months initial with potential to transfer to permanent status
    Rate: Negotiable daily
    Location: London
    Start: April (could wait until May potentially for a strong candidate)
