We're partnering with a scale up bio-pharma business based in Cambridge as they look for a Financial Accountant to support the Head of Finance in their next growth stage having secured their next round of investment.


The business is being steered by a leadership team that has a strong pedigree in building companies and working with a supportive Head of Finance who has a history of staff development; you'll be joining a dynamic organisation at a key stage in its growth. This could offer exposure to M&A, licensing agreements and potentially a future IPO.


The role will see you help build on the current finance processes, taking a rounded approach to daily activities from; management accounts, project work aligned to the costings/ variances within the R&D function, statutory accounts (including consolidations) and act as a business partner/ analyst on business performance and future opportunities/trends.


As with any scale up business there will be tasks outside of the 'day to day' operation and would suit someone with an open mind, happy to get involved in numerous tasks and be able to troubleshoot effectively.


The successful applicant will be ACCA/ACA/CIMA qualified, either currently working in industry or looking to make the first move from the profession. You will have the drive to take on new functions within finance, the ability to adapt quickly depending on changes within the growing business along with strong excel skills to manipulate volumes of data and excellent communication skills for building strong networks across the business.


Salary £50,000-£65,000 (DoE) + Share options
