We are representing a rapidly growing private equity fund based in the City that is looking to hire a newly or recently qualified ACA. This is to join as a commercial Fund Controller.

The role is a broad and an ideal next step within the investment management industry for any ambitious ACA. The position will leverage off you're the skills and knowledge learned from your ACA qualification whilst also provide you with challenges, new experiences and the opportunity to learn and develop.

  • Liaise with the asset management team to deal with operational issues, report on asset performance and optimise investment returns
  • Liaise with the commercial team to assess the impact of new investments and financings on asset and fund performance

The company itself is entrepreneurial in nature and has a track record of developing talent internally through offering progression and lateral exposure throughout the business. This has enabled them to retain staff and as such a strong culture has transcended throughout the entire business.

The ideal candidate will be a newly or recently qualified ACA with either;

  1. Fund audit exposure of any asset class.
  2. Qualified through a mid-tier practice with accounts preparation experience and excellent academics.

Work ethic, desire to learn and throw yourself into other aspects of the business are key as well. If you are looking for a broad and commercial finance position that will widen your career opportunities in the future, then this is the perfect role.
