Do you want to move into the environmental sector?
As we accelerate toward the 2050 deadline of the Paris Agreement, it's becoming increasingly clear we are not going to meet the goals we set ourselves. Which is why action needs to be taken now. Do you want to work for an organisation which is delivering impactful investment strategies for climate and environmental projects globally?
Goodman Masson is partnering with a fast-growing environmental fund manager to recruit their new Chief Financial Officer.
We are looking for a results-oriented CFO/COO who enjoys supporting businesses through growth, who is able to design and implement processes, systems and infrastructure from scratch. Do you have strong problem solving and creative skills, high levels of attention to detail, and the ability to exercise sound judgement and make decisions based on accurate and timely analyses?
You must have:
10 years of successful experience as a senior level executive preferably in Compliance, Finance or a combination role
Demonstrable responsibility in a COO or equivalent financial and operational leadership role, preferably in the financial industry
FCA regulated experience in an Advisory, VC or PE business
Strong leadership skills and the ability to communicate and manage well at all levels of the organisation
This role will have responsibility for Compliance and Risk, Accounting and Finance, IT, HR and Legal and will benefit from a supportive team which includes an experienced Group Accountant, a Financial Accountant and an Office Manager.
You will also be expected to represent the organisation externally so an understanding of the impact investment sector and environmental issues would be hugely beneficial.
