This vacancy has now expired.

Having joined the business in March 2018, the new CFO has identified a need to significantly enhance the finance department's capabilities with respect for financial analysis, business planning and partnering, and financial projects which arise frequently (e.g. capital planning and raising, strategic tax initiatives, expense management, run-off company management). This need is critical given the group's private equity investor base which has high expectations of the business in terms of financial analysis and projections.

To this end, the CFO is looking to recruit a Head of FP&A to support him in driving forward these areas and take ownership for the business planning process, analysis of financial results and various financial projects and initiatives.

On commencement of the role, the FP&A team reporting to the Head of FP&A will consist of a Group Expense Manager and FP&A accountant. The team will be expanded to meet the needs of the business and investors as necessary.

This role will provide the successful candidate with a significant level of exposure to the inner workings of the Vibe Syndicate and wider group business. The relatively small size of the Group means that the Head of FP&A will play a key role in driving the business forward gain a breadth of experience not typically available larger organisations.

The successful candidate will demonstrate:

  • A very strong intellect and ability to develop a good understanding of a broad array of financial information from differing sources (including actuarial/capital modelling) needed by the business and the key commercial implications of that information.

  • The ability to distil large quantities of information / data into meaningful analysis and insight that supports the CFO, Executive, Board and investors in driving the business forward.

  • A highly flexible and adaptive which responds well to priorities which can change at short notice and which evolve over time,

  • An ability and willingness to produce analysis and reports individually where necessary recognising that Vibe is currently a small business with financial processes which are not fully developed.

  • Strong interpersonal skills and a collaborative approach with the ability and desire to develop good relationships across the business (including finance, actuarial, underwriting)
