About the role

Working with the Head of finance you will have a broad role that will cover financial accounting and financial analysis, as well as a variety of project and ad hoc work as required. This role will evolve significantly as the business grows. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Ensure all tax, audit, filings, accounting, inter-company transactions and other relevant compliance matters are completed satisfactorily
  • Budgeting, forecasting and variance analysis across Opex, Capex and Revenue, sharing insights with the executive team and supporting the Head of Finance’s participation in all key decision making.
  • Business partner with the Head of Finance to support strategic planning and across new revenue streams and geographies.
