Job Description

A leading global private equity infrastructure fund is seeking a Financial Controller for a 12-month maternity cover role.

The finance and operations team is a tight-knit group, and the incoming hire will replace the current Financial Controller, who is taking maternity leave this summer. To ensure a smooth transition, the firm is initiating this process early and targeting a September start date to allow for a comprehensive handover period.

This diverse role involves managing the day-to-day operations of the management company and its subsidiaries. Key responsibilities encompass financial reporting, tax compliance, forecasting and budgeting, treasury management, directorships, insurance, and regulatory reporting.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Producing monthly reporting packs
  • Leading the seasonal audit process
  • Preparing the annual budget
  • Managing cash flow forecasting, liquidity, and treasury (including FX hedging)
  • Overseeing regulatory reporting
  • Supervising accounts payable and receivable processes
  • Reviewing tax returns
  • Supporting ongoing and upcoming projects
  • Enhancing internal processes wherever possible


  • Qualified accountant with approximately 3-5 years of PQE
  • Proven experience in a similar financial control role in a similar environment (private equity preferred but will consider wider asset management)
  • Must have the right to work in the UK and sponsorship is not available

The firm offers a competitive compensation package around £80-90,000, along with a completion bonus and access to a comprehensive benefits package. The firm supports a hybrid working environment.
