An established Family Office based in Kensington is seeking a Head of Office to work in a broad role. The principal is seeking to grow their investment portolfio with a number of significant Private Equity transactions.

The family office holds a range of investments including control positions in operating businesses, as well as a number of assets in the UK and overseas held for family use.

The Candidate:

The successful candidate does not necessarily need to be a qualified accountant, but should be highly numerate and familiar with management and financial reporting, forecasting and cash flow. A strong knowledge of spreadsheets using advanced tools and interaction with accounting software is essential.

The candidate will be used to working on their own initiative, be good at problem solving and able to communicate clearly, concisely and with confidence on any aspect of their activities.

Responsibilities will include liaison with external support functions (such as IT, accounting and tax reporting, lawyers and bankers) as well as managing the small team within the family office.

The role requires the candidate to have a ‘can do’ attitude and be able to give equal priority to the many and diverse issues that naturally arise in a family office environment. It is therefore likely, but not essential, the succesful candidate will have been in a similar role for several years.

Strong salary and competitive benefits package.
