    Finance Director | Leisure and Hospitality | Old Street | 110-130K



    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting on an exclusive basis for one of London's fastest-growing Leisure and Hospitality businesses based in Soho



    Led by one of the UK's leading hospitality entrepreneurs, and supported by multi-million pound investment you will assist them in their development towards a likely transaction within the next 18 months (life-changing equity available up-front to be paid out upon deal closure).



    Company culture:



    Although the business performance is market-beating (c. £8 million EBITDA) the company culture is very much still that of a 'start-up' and overall headcount is small. Growth rates are rapid and the business is also hugely acquisitive so- while home working is available etc- this is a role for a high-tempo, high-energy individual who is inspired by a fast-paced deal-driven culture. Candidates happy working in either VC or PE-backed environments which are deal-driven may therefore be a good 'fit'.



    The Role:



    Although supported by a team of 5 colleagues covering payroll and transactional finance this is a truly hands-on Finance Director role. The company is very cash-driven, so you'll need to be used to leading teams which are really on top of the accruals and cash reconciliations processes. And also have the ability to deliver the successful integration of the accounts of acquired businesses into the Group P&L at pace. A passion for process improvement and integration would also be helpful here.



    You will oversee delivery of the Stat and Management Accounts, Audit liaison, payroll and production of relevant board pack details. The more FP&A-related duties are led largely by the senior commercial colleagues currently, but there may be scope to become involved in this (plus improved data visualization etc) once you have settled into the role.



    As the company is a physical location hospitality business, the successful candidate will have experience of overseeing stores or bars/restaurants in a multi-site operation.



    Essential skills & Experience:



    * A background in a retail (physical stores rather than ecommerce), hospitality or leisure.
    * Early stage (sub £20 million t/o) business experience
    * Qualified ACA / ACCA / CIMA
    * Good technical hands-on accounting background



    What we'd like to see (Non-Essential):



    * A role as FC or FD in a business that has undertaken a successful 'buy and build' strategy successfully.
    * VC or PE experience.



    Salary: 110-130k + Significant equity (note that equity will be lower if base salary at higher end of pay scale)

  • Doing what:

    Finance Director (Operational) | Market-leading SAAS organisation | Full-time or 4 day week



    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting on an exclusive basis for one of the United Kingdom's leading Series A SAAS companies. The business are 'first to market' in their field and are now- following a recent multi-million pound VC raise- seeking to invest heavily in headcount across tech, finance and business development.

    In spite of being founded only a few years ago, they have scaled rapidly- in the process acquiring a number of exclusive international clients on long-term contracts. The co-founders have previously successfully exited a business for a sizeable revenue multiple and are well-respected by experienced peers within the European tech community.



    The role:

    A newly-created position (supported by a capable colleague who covered Management Accounts and Transactional Finance), you will be the #1 team member for Finance and Operations.

    While the business is relatively simple from a transactional perspective, there is currently a lack of nous around the commercial financial analysis and KPI metrics and the financial input into the board pack for investors requires improvement during 2020. There is also a requirement to provide strategic leadership and support the CEO as the business make the step-change from circa 20 to 50 headcount.

    While the emphasis of the role is heavily weighted towards Finance (c 85%), you will also oversee colleagues who will manage the HR and Legal side (i.e. contractual agreements with new clients and compliance etc). The role would therefore suit someone who is either happy to learn and develop a broader 'Operational FD skillset', or someone who has experience to cover a broad remit from a previous start-up.

    Subject to strong performance, the successful candidate will be offered a clear career trajectory to become the company's first CFO.



    Company culture:

    Professional but non-corporate with a good degree of diversity in respect of age and background. There's an emphasis on the social side and a healthy openness to flexible working.



    Workplace:

    The business have a fantastic, spacious private office which links with a co-working suite where there are several shared events.



    What we need to see (Essential):

    * Qualified ACA, ACCA, CIMA
    * Experience of working within at least one Seed or Series A-C scale-up (current or previous role)
    * A real enthusiasm for commercial financial analysis and an ability to develop KPI dashboards.
    * Strong communication skills, including the ability and confidence to present to prospective investors.
    * Solid technical accounting background



    What we'd like to see (Non-Essential):

    * Experience as an FC, Head of Finance or Finance Director within a SAAS or Enterprise Software business.



    Location: Old Street



    Salary: £90-110k + bonus + options (experience dependent). Client will consider a pro-rata 4 day per week arrangement
