The role will be to co-ordinate and oversee all aspects of finance and operations. This will including managing the relationships with fund administrators and accountancy practice firms, in relation to the preparation of LLP accounts, fund accounting and the co-ordination of the annual audit process. You would also naturally assume other operational responsibilities that relate to the day-to-day running of the firm across areas such as HR, IT, regulatory compliance etc. The premise of the remit is to ensure that time the partners spend on matters such as finance and operations is taken over by a dedicated resource, to enable them to focus on portfolio development, deal execution, fundraising and other commercial responsibilities. This is a key hire and the appointee will have the autonomy to develop the finance function as they see fit over time and to add value in other areas. Our client is flexible in terms of the format for working hours.
The appointee will be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) with significant experience working in a private equity firm or family office, in a Financial Controller or Finance Director capacity.
