My client, a technology solutions company based in the City of London, is currently seeking a CFO to join their finance team. This contract is expected to last for 6 months, although this could turn into a long term opportunity for the right candidate. You should ideally be immediately available or on a maximum of 2 weeks' notice.

The CFO will be responsible for the Financial Compliance and Reporting for several European entities which are led from the UK, with responsibility to support ongoing acquisitions within Europe.
This role reports to the UK President, with a dotted line to the US based Group CFO. The staff reporting into this role include 3 x Financial Controllers, each with their own small finance teams, based in both the UK and Europe.
You will manage the staff, build an understanding of each of their duties and provide support.
There will be some minimal travel to European office locations during the engagement.
