We are delighted to be working on a fantastic opportunity for a qualified accountant who has operated at a Director or C-Suite level to join a growing, progressive offshore law firm’s senior management team as the Chief Financial Officer. Based in either Jersey or Guernsey, the role’s focus is on the development and delivery of the firm’s strategy and supporting the Managing Partner and other Partners in running the business from a firmwide and at practice group level. This will include providing thought leadership and effective support around the assessment and pursuit of new business opportunities and growth generally, by acquisition or otherwise. The CFO is integral to the direction of the business and its future, in all respects.

As well as the executive leadership role, the other main objective of this role is to lead a Finance function which is fully in line with and capable of supporting the strategic objectives of the firm. The successful candidate’s excellence in financial aspects of management is a given: the firm is looking for a fresh pair of eyes to review the function and make changes if necessary. This requires someone who demonstrates commercial savvy and strategic input as a true business leader. 

Applicants should have demonstrable experience of operating at a senior (Director, C-Suite or equivalent) level in a partnership environment, have led finance functions and acted as an executive business partner, preferably at a board level. This role requires a qualified accountant who has proven track record of successfully leading growing businesses forward from a financial strategy perspective.
