Finance Director/CFO (Family Office)

Location:  London, England, United Kingdom
Salary: £250k Total Compensation

One of the leading names from the Financial Services industry is looking for a Senior Controller or established FD/CFO to help manage the running of their extensive family office.

This is an exciting opportunity to work alongside an incredibly successful and smart individual on a daily basis across a diverse portfolio that includes VC/private equity, fixed income, and real estate. He is an incredibly entrepreneurial individual who will consider any asset class on a case by case basis.

It is not a typical finance role that will have you sitting behind spreadsheets all day. Supported by a strong team you will have full operational control over the portfolio. You will often be out of the office visiting various companies/employees/assets and ensuring that everything is operating smoothly.

You will be part of the senior management team and need a broad set of accounting skills including corporate accounting, budgeting, forecasting, and extensive experience in the world of tax (both personal and corporate). There will also be specific responsibilities to a Family Office that can be administrative in nature such as dealing with trustees and ad-hoc tasks.

You must have the attitude that no task is too small. Being a member of the senior management team you will need to be incredibly commercial as you will be involved in many high-level decision-making processes whether that be investment or operationally focused.

It’s a very intellectually demanding and stimulating environment but will provide unique challenges and exposure. You will need a strong academic background and ideally, you will have Family Office or Asset Management experience although all sectors will be considered.

Requirements

  • Strong academic profile (2.1 degree or above)
  • Qualified Accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA)
  • Strong Tax background
  • Mature and personable individual
  • Broad finance background
  • Ideally family office experience
