Finance Director - Online Scale-Up
A rapidly growing and fully remote online subscription business in the online betting space (not a gambling business). The end of 2020 marks their largest recorded headcount and revenue rate, whilst the growth trajectory shows no signs of wavering. Their expanding customer base pays a monthly fee for betting content and advice. The company is in a strong & profitable financial position and are expanding into new markets, so it is a great time to join, taking advantage of a fully remote role.

As Finance Director, you will be responsible for providing clarity and vision as to the performance of the company, ensuring that the management team is kept closely informed as to the cashflow position of the company. You'll be responsible for raising capital when required and tax-planning to maximise profitability whilst availing of relevant reliefs and benefits.
