Job Description

Client Details

The Client

My client is one of the UK's fastest growing tech firms and this is a newly-created FP&A Analyst role, having involvement in all planning and strategy activities for the group in order to support their continued expansion.

As a highly acquisitive firm, M&A activity is a key focus and this position will support the CFO with ongoing and future acquisitions. The London finance function is still a streamline team (5 heads) and this is the first solely FP&A hire so you'll have a lot of autonomy within the role.


The Role

Reporting into the Financial Controller and working closely with the CFO and senior leadership team, this FP&A Analyst role will have the following key responsibilities:

  • Budget/Forecast: Ownership of the budget/planning cycles
  • Business Partnering: Both finance and non-finance, supporting with all aspects of FP&A.
  • Analysis: Market analysis, competitor analysis, identifying opportunities for growth as well as highlighting risk, variance analysis as well as further ad hoc analysis were required
  • Modelling: In support of the above analysis, running of financial models to deliver strategy/decision making support to Senior Leadership Team
  • M&A: support CFO on all future acquisitions
  • Presentation: Support in the preparation of material to be delivered to the board as well as any other necessary finance presentations


What's Needed

  • Qualified Accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA or equivalent)
  • Background in FP&A/M&A (This is not a move for someone straight from audit)
  • Advanced excel capabilities + Proven analytical ability (able to manipulate large data sets)
  • Strong interpersonal skills (to manage business partnering elements of the role)
  • Able to commute to Central London (as/when offices reopen)

Job Offer

What's On Offer

  • Up to £60,000 (experience dependent)
  • Chance to join a rapidly growing, PE-backed tech business
