    Head of Finance | Fast Growth VC Backed Tech Platform | Central London

    The Company

    We are delighted to be working exclusively with a VC backed Tech platform who are looking for their first Head of Finance to support the business as they scale. Growing incredibly quickly, the company have achieved revenue of over £4m in 2019 and forecast £8m revenue in 2020 (Year 3) and almost £20m in 2021.

    Having just moved into a spectacular new office of their own with plenty of room for expansion they forecast headcount growth from the current 40 to circa 80 at the end of the year. Based in Central London they are looking to add to their young, ambitious team who are motivated by having a real impact in the success of a scaling business. Crucially they want to have lot of fun in the process! They are a down to earth, sociable bunch with a healthy approach to work-life balance despite the incredibly fast paced environment!

    Their product is innovative and is disrupting an industry which is yet to properly be impacted by the Tech revolution. In the midterm they will also be launching a SaaS based solution. Backed by one of London's major VC funds they have raised substantial Series A Investment which will support a city based expansion across the UK and into Europe in 2021/22.
