About You
You will be a CA or CPA qualified accountant who brings experience as a CFO, Head of Finance, or Financial Controller within a commercial entity, ideally a high growth owner-managed business, private equity, and/or international operations. You will bring high integrity, energy, and intelligence, with experience of working closely with a leadership team or board.
