From practice to CFO...

Join us as a Finance Business Partner

The career path for accountants is broken.  And we're trying to fix it. 

Our Finance Business Partner role provides meaningful careers to the brightest accountants in London.  We provide you with the tools to become the modern CFO, and help you use them with startups where you can really make a difference.
 

In a typical week you’ll split your time between two or three of the fastest growing entrepreneurs in London, so you learn twice as fast.  In each case, you’ll be working directly for the entrepreneur or CFO.

About you

We’re looking for recently qualified accountants from top tier firms, with excellent academic credentials. 

 

A demonstrated interest in fast-growing businesses and entrepreneurship is essential.

 

You need to be comfortable working with entrepreneurs and different functional teams in their businesses.  You also need to know how to communicate financial concepts to different parts of the organisation and be able to support them when needed. You must be diplomatic but also know how to fight your corner when appropriate.

 

You’ll be supported by experienced engagement leaders, a peer group network and a range of experts, so you don’t need to know all the answers.  However, you do need to be confident in asking for help when you need it.  The role is not appropriate to anyone looking for constant close supervision.

About us

Quantico provides all the benefits of in-house finance teams, without the cost or effort of hiring.  At the core of our service is a guarantee to provide a fixed number of days a month of working directly in our clients’ offices.  Unlike outsourced accountants, this enables us to work collaboratively across the business and to take work off the founders’ plates, without having to agree to separate scopes of work.

 

Our clients come to us because they need access to a range of skill-sets, able to start almost immediately.

 

Our solution means that they can benefit from a range of skill-sets, exactly when they need them. Instead of having to rely on one employee and expecting them to know everything they benefit from the cumulative experience of our entire team.

About the role

  • Act as the primary point of contact between our firm and our clients

  • You won’t be expected to undertake transaction processing, but you will need to manage, coordinate and review the transactional work performed by our remote teams

  • You’ll be expected to identify risk areas across law, tax and finance, and flag up where appropriate

  • Undertake ad-hoc analysis and forecasting to support your clients' decision making.

  • You’ll be expected to take the lead in following processes designed by senior colleagues, and making suggestions for improvements as required

  • The role will be based 80% at client offices, where you will become an embedded part of the organisation you’re working with

  • The other 20% of the time is allocated to training, development and peer learning, based at our offices

  • You can also take a look at this article we wrote about the role.
