FP&A Manager – PE-backed VC Fund – London – will consider newly qualified Audit or Corporate Finance professionals
Hanami International is a proud member of the Recruitment Entrepreneur portfolio. Since our inception in 2014, we have flourished under their stewardship. We are working exclusively with them to help them strengthen their commercial finance team in the London HQ. Reporting to the Group Financial Controller and Group CFO this is a rare opportunity to gain industry FP&A experience, in a fast-growing and successful environment, working alongside high-quality and passionate individuals.
With James Caan CBE as its Chairman, Recruitment Entrepreneur (RE) is an entirely unique proposition – it is a private equity backed venture capital fund investing in start-up and early stage recruitment firms. Since inception in 2014, the CAGR across all meaningful measurables has been 140% so that the portfolio today stands at 160 headcount with a turnover of £40m across 20 individual portfolio businesses.
RE has a clearly defined, unique exit strategy, selling portfolios of companies to deliver a significant arbitrage vs selling as individual companies. This exit strategy drives all our behavior and decision making and is one of the main reasons why we are the preferred investor for recruitment start-ups. Another key to our investment model is our shared service centre, which allows each portfolio business to plug into best-in-class marketing, operations, finance, legal and senior management support. This enables the portfolio business CEOs to focus on growing their business with the freedom of having their business operations taken care of, which together with our acquisitive growth, explains our exponential growth rate.
Role & responsibility
Given the size, scale and complexity of the RE operation we require exceptionally talented people who have the ambition and drive to grow and develop with the organization. We have a vacancy for a FP&A manager to work closely with the Group Financial Controller and Group Chief Financial Officer to, manage the budgeting and reforecasting process, produce timely, detailed and accurate management information for the management teams of portfolio businesses and TopCo. There will also be the opportunity to be involved in the other elements of the investment cycle, such as investment appraisal. This is an excellent opportunity to work in a fast paced, aggressive growth environment and gain the lucrative career experience of helping lead a private equity backed business to an exit.
The ideal candidate is going to be UK-based, (home working to begin of course with and head offices in Victoria) Data-driven and Excel-savvy, qualified Auditors or Corporate Finance (TS or M&A) professionals coming out of practice or indeed, ex-auditors/TS professionals who have already gained valuable FP&A experience in industry and want an exciting new challenge.
