Financial Controller

Job Type:
Commerce & Industry
Central London
£60,000-65000 plus benefits
Ref #:
PE-backed SME Telecommunications company is looking for a Financial Controller to join its growing finance team.

Although they have Central London based offices, which are there to be used, this role can be largely remotely based (candidates would only need to be available around once a month to meet with the CFO in London), and so candidates do not themselves need to be London based.

Reporting to the CFO and with informal supervision of the Accounts Assistant, this role is typical of a SME FC/FM role and will be a broad, hands-on mix of technical and commercial finance responsibilities, to include:

  • Responsible for preparation and reporting of the monthly revenue accounting process
  • Managing the production and reporting of monthly financial and management accounts
  • Collaborate with the business to develop and manage the quarterly forecast and annual budget activities
  • Develop monthly management reporting review and finance meetings with the business
  • Manage the cashflow forecasting and scenario planning activities
  • Oversee the payroll process managed by outsourced provider and manage the filing compliance tasks
  • Manage the month-end and year-end processes and make continuous improvements along the way
  • Work with external parties (auditors, tax advisors and consultants) to manage all statutory and regulatory reporting activities
  • Preparation and submission of VAT calculations and managing HMRC queries
  • Providing support to the CFO and the wider team on ad hoc tasks and projects such as acquisitions, investment analysis and system implementation.

You will be the primary interface in controlling the day-to-day finance operations and manage the corporate, financial and management accounting activities. You will be supporting a small team in a start-up environment and get the opportunity to learn about the business and be part of the decision-making process.


  • Qualified (ACCA/CIMA/ACA) with post qualified experience
  • Experience of working in a broad finance role (Finance Manager or equivalent) within an SME company  (telecommunications or technology sectors preferred, but certainly not essential)
  • Experience with accounting software, ideally Xero or Sage Intaact
  • Ability to organise and manage time effectively
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills
  • Multitasker with the ability to thrive under pressure and meet deadlines
  • Ability to work well within a team
  • MS Office knowledge (Excel at an intermediate+ level)

If you are a self-starter and looking to make a difference, in a thriving start-up environment, then this role is for you.
