We are currently working with a leading Venture Capital fund with a considerable amount of AUM that invest in early stage companies.
As Fund Accountant, you will work closely with the existing finance team and investment managers, as well as external accountants, lawyers and advisers. Reporting directly to the Fund Controller, you will be expected to develop the existing role and take on additional reporting and administrative responsibilities as the business expands, meaning there is clear potential for progression and promotion in the future where merited. This is an excellent opportunity for a recently qualified accountant from an audit background to take their first steps into VC.
