  • Previous experience managing a FP&A function

  • Experience working in financial services, FinTech or a SaaS business

  • ‘Best practice’ knowledge of business planning, budgeting, and forecasting

  • Exposure to producing detailed financial models and business plans

  • Comfortable supporting fundraising and IR

  • Good communication skills – ability to Business Partner
