We're not happy with accounting right now. It's not working for accountants and it's not working for innovative businesses.
Our FinOps Manager role provides meaningful careers to the brightest accountants in London, whilst solving a very real problem for startups. We provide you with the tools to become a startup finance expert, 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 startups in London, so you learn twice as fast. In each case, you’ll be working directly for the entrepreneur or CFO.

We’re looking for recently qualified accountants, either from a top tier firm or with experience working directly in a startup finance function.
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.
