The Company

Giggle Broadband is a new and exciting disruptive fibre broadband provider backed by Triple Point Investment Management through its Digital 9 Infrastructure fund. The focus will be to bridge the digital infrastructure divide within social housing, creating greener and more sustainable connectivity. Glasgow has been selected as the first city to benefit from affordable broadband, with further roll outs planned across UK cities with similar demographics and governance structures as part of Giggle’s future growth strategy.

This is a high-profile start-up with estimated build costs for the Glasgow project being estimated as c£100m. Giggle anticipates initial growth of 250,000 homes being capable of connection within the first two and a half years of operation.

As part of this exciting phase of growth, the role of Financial Controller has been identified which will be pivotal in the support of the initial setup and day to day management of the finance team in Glasgow, whilst also acting as a key support to the leadership team for the future growth of the business.

The Opportunity

With a direct reporting line to the Head of Finance, the Financial Controller will be primarily responsible for the day to day running and management of the finance function.

The Financial Controller will support the transactional finance team (initially a team of 2) and have a direct oversight of the purchase ledger, sales ledger and credit control processes and lease accounting. The successful candidate will be required to work closely with key stakeholders and departmental heads throughout the business to ensure accurate reporting. Key to this will be someone with a strong technical accounting skillset who will own the monthly, quarterly and statutory year end processes and will lead the finance team whilst having a focus on continuous improvement initiatives around systems, processes and controls.

This is a highly visible role within the business and will require a clear communicator who has strong influencing abilities across a range of levels and teams with a willingness to proactively engage different stakeholders to build rapport and trust from the start.

This role represents an excellent opportunity to join a high-profile start up with a notable investment fund that plans to expand further across the UK whilst maintaining their core hub in the City Centre of Glasgow. It will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to establish a new team and play a key role in the journey and future successes of the business.
