Finance Manager



Accounting & Finance
London, UK
Posted on Friday, July 5, 2024

‘1 in 3 fish harvested from our oceans never make it onto a plate. We want to fix that!’

🔭 Our vision

At Rooser, we’re on a mission to eliminate the world’s seafood waste. For us, this means creating transparency and certainty in what is an incredibly tough industry.

We’re building the world’s first seafood trading platform dedicated to connecting seafood processors with wholesalers.

We want to eradicate the fragmented processes and volatility that plague the industry & get seafood flowing more efficiently through the supply chain. As a perishable product, increased speed means longer shelf life and, ultimately, less waste.

Sounds simple, but this is no small feat.

That’s why we’re looking for the most talented and passionate people to join us on our mission and help turn this vision into reality.

With backing from Index Ventures (Etsy, Farfetch and Just Eat), Google Ventures (Uber, Stripe, StockX) and Point Nine Capital (Zendesk, DeliveryHero, Revolut), we’re not alone in believing in this vision.

🏅 What we value

Rooser was founded on the idea that we should leave the planet in a better way than it was given to us. We want to work with people who have the same values we do.

  • ⚓️ Leave your ego in the harbour - a high-performance crew functions on passion, not egos.

  • ✊ Respect your crew mates - customers, crew mates and co-investors, you need each other, act like it.

  • 🛳 You’re the skipper - we all own a part of Rooser and act like it.

  • 🐟 Relentless like a salmon - we’re ready to swim against the current, focus on the goal and get it done.

🧭 The role mission

We are looking for a dynamic Finance Manager to lead our end-to-end finance processes and support the Rooser marketplace, which facilitates thousands of monthly transactions between buyers and sellers.

This role is crucial for keeping our current financial processes running smoothly and finding ways to improve how our team functions, including the systems and operations, as we build for scale. We’re looking for someone who is hands-on, thinks strategically, and always looks for ways to make things better today and tomorrow.

🚢 What will you be doing?

  • Manage the key relationships supporting the finance operations function, including partnerships with outsourced accountants and payment solution providers.

  • Oversee the monthly close process and ensure accurate and timely data through monthly management accounts.

  • Enhance financial systems and processes to improve efficiency and insights.

  • Ensure that financial information translates into insightful management reporting that can inform decision-making for the designated audience.

  • Ensure compliance with all regulatory standards, including VAT and Corporation Tax.

🎣 This role will be a great catch for you if…

  • You hold a professional qualification (CIMA or ACCA) with experience in both public practice and industry, particularly in early-stage or high-growth businesses where the finance function is growing from the ground up.

  • You're hands-on and enjoy being in the details, analysing data, and providing practical solutions.

  • You're motivated by taking ownership of challenges, like building robust reporting infrastructure to deliver actionable insights to the business.

  • You value building relationships. You'll be tasked with managing key partnerships with external providers and internal stakeholders.

🦐 This role won’t be a great catch for you if…

  • You want to manage a team from day one; this senior individual contributor role requires you to be very hands-on.

  • You are uncomfortable with rapid change and ambiguity as the business scales. You prefer a steady-state environment over a constantly evolving one.

  • You’re not excited by the startup environment where creating and running processes yourself are essential.

  • Our mission to eliminate seafood waste doesn’t resonate with you. You don’t need to be a seafood enthusiast but we do need people committed to building this business and making a positive difference to an entire industry.

🧁 What’s in it for you?

Aside from playing a crucial role in our mission to eliminate the world’s seafood waste, you’ll get…

  • Stock options that give you a share in the future success of Rooser.

  • Benefits package that includes access to private health insurance, income protection, life insurance and employee assistance programmes.

  • Flexible working that provides a combination of remote working and face-to-face collaboration in our modern office spaces.

  • Work away opportunities for up to 30 days per year.
