Finance Operations Lead

Summary

Accounting used to be a safe and prestigious job for life, but it's not delivering for our generation. In fact young accountants are today one of the most unhappy groups in the entire workforce.


The profession has trained accountants for the past, not the future. The exams taught us to do T accounts on paper, but software was never mentioned.


The result is that accounting isn’t delivering for our most innovative businesses either. Startups are crying out for the skills that accountants should bring, but they're stuck with old fashioned firms with old ideas.


At Quantico we’re starting a revolution in accounting. Our mission is to do whatever it takes to drive fulfilling careers for accountants and game-changing outcomes for businesses. 


We’re looking for an experienced finance profession who’s tired of the traditional career path and wants to help build what’s next.


About the role

The role is split between three areas:


  • Onboarding new startups

We work with some of the most exciting startups in the UK.  As FinOps Leader your job is to bring them from prospect to client. That means identifying priorities, fighting fires and implementing process changes.


  • Managing teams on existing clients.

As clients stabilise you’ll hand over to our FinOps Managers and Associates. They are incredibly motivated and talented, but they need your support, coaching and help ensuring that our scope is always correct.


  • Building Quantico.

Our client teams are our head office team. A third of the role is building our business as we grow. Recent projects have included sales pitches, recruitment interviews, marketing initiatives, web design and organising training courses. 


About you

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has experience both running a finance function and working with clients
  • Is highly proficient in accounting, accounting technology and operations
  • Has skill competencies outside of accounting (eg sales, marketing, operations, design, people ops, recruitment) and is excited about using them to transform accounting
  • Is an ambitious high performer, capable of working independently and solving problems across a range of domains and industries

What we offer

  1. Work across a portfolio of the most exciting startups in Europe
  2. A competitive benefits package, including share options
  3. Work on a variety of problems, outside of the finance function
  4. Help us to build a business, as we launch a revolution in accounting
  5. A high performance team culture, focused on continuous improvement

Do not apply if...

  1. You’re a strategic CFO who doesn’t want to get involved with processes 
  2. You believe that the accounting career path is already fit for purpose
  3. You’re looking for a predictable 9-5 office job
