Fund Controller (Hedge Fund - Exceptional Progression & Compensation)

Location: London   Sectors Finance  

Reporting to the COO, this role will be very focused on the trading side of the business. You will have a focus on fund accounting, but you will be supporting the traders, finance team and investor relations across a variety of technical and business facing responsibilities. This is an ideal role for any candidate with fund accounting experience, who is seeking a broader more challenging role.

This is a strategic hire and whilst this person will have opportunity to develop in the role, they would like this individual to hit the ground running and take ownership of the role ASAP. The company prides itself on collaborative work and there is a nice family feel. Your opinions will be listened to and they will welcome any input you provide.

The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant who has experience of working in a fund accounting role within a hedge fund. They will consider individuals from an administrator but you must be exceptional and held a broad remit.

Despite the current situation, they are still very keen to make this hire and are happy to conduct all interviews via VC. They offer extremely generous salaries with multiple benefits, as well as a fantastic work life balance and culture.
