The career path for accountants is broken. And we're trying to fix it.

Our Finance Business Partner role provides meaningful careers to the brightest accountants in London. We provide you with the tools to become the modern CFO, and help you use them with startups where you can really make a difference.

In a typical week you'll split your time between two or three of the fastest growing entrepreneurs in London, so you learn twice as fast. In each case, you'll be working directly for the entrepreneur or CFO.

About the role
  • Work across a portfolio of the fastest growing startups in London
  • Spend between one and three days a week working at each client, getting to know their team and their industry.
  • Help to design and implement financial processes that support their ambitious growth plans.
  • Oversee a team of management accounts who work remotely on all transactional work and payroll.
  • Act as the main point of contact between our team and your clients.
  • Undertake analysis and forecasting to support decision making.

About us

We deliver world class finance teams to rapidly scaling businesses. There's no need to hire one person full time and expecting them to do everything. We provide a mix of skill-sets, supported by unlimited access to our methodology and subject matter experts. Whether it's building a forecast, processing expenses or getting paid, we've got you covered.

About you

We're looking for recently qualified accountants from top tier firms and with excellent academic credentials.

A demonstrated interest in fast-growing businesses and entrepreneurship is essential.

You need to be comfortable working with entrepreneurs and different functional teams in their businesses. You also need to know how to communicate financial concepts to different parts of the organisation and be able to support them when needed. You must be diplomatic but also know how to fight your corner when appropriate.

You'll be supported by experienced engagement leaders, a peer group network and a range of experts, so you don't need to know all the answers. However, you do need to be confident in asking for help when you need it. The role is not appropriate to anyone looking for constant close supervision.
