    Role Summary

    Fund Accountant

    Posted on: 4, Jan 2023


    Location:Greater London

    Salary: £40000 – £55000

    Work Type: Permanent / Full Time

    Fund Accountant
    Asset Management/Venture Capital firm
    Our client
    Our client is a leading boutique global Life Sciences asset management/VC firm that makes an impact through carefully chosen investment themes with a principal focus on MedTech. The companies that they invest in, help to develop life-changing technologies that have significant benefits to the day-to-day population. Due to recent expansion and growth, they are now looking for a Part Qualified Fund Accountant to join their busy and dynamic team.
    They are a boutique and innovative firm that are passionate about business and operate with an entrepreneurial and results-driven approach. The culture is hardworking but very supportive, where they seek those who are keen to involve themselves in the architecture of the organisation to help deliver strong returns for their investors who are at the heart of everything that they do.
    The role
    This role is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated candidate to receive unique exposure to the inner workings of a Fund.
    In this role you will be responsible for overseeing a wide-range of financial duties to the whole firm which delivers accurate and timely reporting and drives robust financial control. You will work closely with the Fund administrators and accounting teams to assist the business with more internal oversight on both daily financial operations and wider investment portfolio operations. It presents a strong opportunity to mould the role, playing a pivotal part in the smooth running of the Finance department.
    This role provides business partnering support which delivers positive performance management and effectively evaluates new opportunities and initiatives to improve financial processes and reporting going forwards.
    Previous fund or financial services experience is essential for this position.
    You will exercise sound judgment and be able to implement financial controls. The role will suit a dynamic candidate who shows an interest in researching and implementing more efficient protocols across jurisdictions as Valiance sets up new investment vehicles.
    The desired candidate must be able to work independently and proactively, with the ability to report in a concise and informative manner. Strong organisational skills are therefore essential, as are taking ownership of workflows with a keen eye for detail.
    The team is very small so it is crucial that the right candidate be a self-starter, confident working independently whilst equally being a natural collaborator with a muck-in attitude and an entrepreneurial spirit.
    The most important qualities for this role will be the willingness to learn, the hunger for growth , a strong work ethic with a no-nonsense attitude and the desire to add value to the organisation.
