About the role 
Reporting to the Managing Director, the Finance Manager is responsible for the finance function for the business, as well as leading our small finance team. This role is broad and varied, and will encompass both high level financial responsibilities, along with detailed day to day tasks. In this role you will be responsible for:

At the same time, you won’t be shy about rolling your sleeves up; we’re a small team which means that you’ll still need to be hands on with financial tasks. You will also bring:

  • A high level of confidentiality and ability to build trust 
  • Exceptional attention to detail
