Job Description

​​Chief Financial Officer - Sustainability focused Technology business

​​Camino Search are delighted to be retained by an innovative technology business to help them secure a Chief Financial Officer to join their executive team and to lead them through an up-coming IPO. This is a truly exceptional CFO opportunity and we're looking to speak to the very best CFOs on the market.

This uniquely based business benefits from being able to supply consistent levels of hardware, as well as recurring revenue focused software on 3-5 year contracts. In the last five years, the business has built up an incredibly talented leadership team and executive board, consisting of subject matter experts and industry recognized executives and non-executives. The CEO is a true expert in this field, who has a track record of building technology businesses for this specific sector. The product-market fit is strong and the business has a lack of competitors who can display the levels of complexity necessary to scale. The business has acquired some marquee clients, both in the UK and internationally.

This CFO will play a critical role on the board, working in collaboration with the CEO to drive strategy, make critical operational decisions, and build the investor story. However, the initial primary focus for the CFO is to prepare the business for a summer 2022 listing on the AIM market.

Due to the nature of the immediate objective, we're seeking a commercial and risk-taking CFO who enjoys an unstructured and super fast-paced environment. This CFO will scale the financial, strategic, and accounting functions whilst building the investor story and working with the appointed investment bankers.

The culture of this business is great and full of bright and passionate individuals - we're looking for someone who can add to that!

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Prepare the business for the IPO

  • Collaborate with the investment bankers, auditors, lawyers, and analysts

  • Drive analysis across the business as the CFO

  • Develop, implement, and optimise new growth strategies

  • Accountable for all relevant legislative Tax, Compliance and Accounting duties within the business

  • Build and develop a first class finance function

Person Specification:

  • The candidate must be progressive, different, and thought provoking

  • Strong interpersonal skills and a great communicator

  • A risk taker with integrity and who is detail oriented

  • Have a strong track record of helping businesses scale

Technical background required:

  • Must have prior experience in a public business or very strong experience working with investors and advisors (Floating on AIM is desired!)

  • MBA/ACCA/CPA

  • Strong experience in Commercial Finance and FP&A is preferred

  • Minimum of 10+ years of experience is ideal but flexible as long as the candidate is dynamic and has the necessary experience

  • Tech or tech-enabled sector experience preferred
