Chief Financial Officer

High-Growth, Cutting-Edge, Financial Services

London/Hybrid - Generous Six-Figure Salary + Excellent Benefits Package

Some Accountants like ‘maintenance’ type, finance roles. This is certainly NOT one of those ‘typical’ roles.

As a market disruptor at the cutting edge of consumer lending, Koyo have assembled a multi-national, world-class team, enabling them to build a clear identity.

They have ambitious plans and due to their success to date, combined with the impressive, knowledgeable and engaging Senior Leadership, the business has secured funding from the same funds that have backed Revolut and Transferwise along with others.

They are now seeking a strong CFO to join the SLT and help with the next, exciting chapter of their journey.

As the first CFO of Koyo you will be a key part of this.

If you are seeking a role with a future where you can make a tangible difference, then this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

You will need to understand, negotiate and implement complex debt agreements, implement the correct frameworks for ‘best-in-class’ financial practices.

You will also manage Koyo’s debt facilities, create processes to reduce risk and monitor all aspects of the Company’s finances.

As a close aide and strategic sounding board to the CEO, you will have input in key decisions and will provide robust financial and commercial insight.

You will understand complex debt and have a proven understanding of UK accounting practices. Experience in reporting, R&D tax credits and options treatment are all required within this position.

Aside from the technical competences, the MOST important element will be your approach to joining an ambitious, early stage start-up.

Koyo do have an existing accounting function in place, however you will need the well-known and pragmatic approach encountered within high-growth SMEs, whereby you will also need to ‘roll up your sleeves’ when required.

A key part of your role will be to ‘get into the weeds’, review processes, identify and drive improvements and drive a culture of constant best practice.

If you are passionate about your work and have a track record of outperformance in multiple roles, this is the perfect opportunity.

This is an ideal time to join this ‘rocket ship’ of a business and be part of a revolution in consumer lending!
