I am partnered with a scaling Proptech business in search for a Commercial Finance Manager to join the team. You will hold responsibility for overseeing the finance function (with the support of 2 juniors) but crucially have an eye for process improvement and a desire for process design in order to create a best in class function. You will need to be commercially and strategically minded and possess good financial modelling skills. An eagerness to contribute in the wider business strategy but also a readiness to be hands on in the 'nitty gritty' is key.

Responsibilities:

  • Take charge for ensuring that the money in and out of the business is correctly allocated, reconciled, and reported on

  • Ensure relevant money is held on accounts for management fees, pre-approved contractor invoices, and any appropriate service charges
  • Ensure the accounts are always reconciled and our balances are consistently updated to reflect the true state of the account
  • Lead on regular account audits: ensuring all money in the client account is accurately allocated
  • Coordinate monthly and annual statements of account to send to clients
  • Be a main point of contact for larger clients and an escalation point for the team
  • Liaise with external services for tax preparation, auditing, banking, investments, and other financial needs as necessary, including HMRC
  • Drive process improvement and review of finance templates and systems, ensuring they are fit for purpose i.e. sales ledger
  • Management and growth of a small finance team from attraction and retention to development and motivation
  • Review financial data
  • Responsible for ensuring our Finance system MRI is working
  • Stay up to date with technological advances and accounting software to be used for financial purposes
  • Understand and adhere to financial regulations and legislation
  • Establish and maintain financial policies and procedures for the company

Requirements:

  • Demonstrated experience in process improvement and system integration is key
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
  • A problem solver and solution finder
