Finance Director Real Estate

A Finance Director job in London for this property investment and development business.

Your new company
This property investment and development has a broad portfolio of assets across the South East of England which span commercial office space, residential property and agricultural land. With these assets holding value they also generate steady revenues from rental income which gets reinvested back into the business; and the small family office style operation allows a collaborative approach to steady acquisitive growth.

Your new role
Your Finance Director role will report into the MD of the business and take a lead on all financial reporting for the Company's activities; and importantly take a lead on all investor facing activity. The businesses finances are currently managed by a team of 3, and it is important you maintain bank and auditing relationships. The value add from you will come through appraising potential new investments and developments, analysing the performance of existing assets, and maximising the value of loan financing.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a qualified accountant and have a strong academic background. Confidence with financial data and professional interpersonal skills will come naturally to you to deal with a range of senior professional stakeholders in and out of the office. Importantly you will have a background in raising finance, either debt through loan origination or equity, and strong banking relationships. In addition, a clear understanding of property development and investment markets and projects, and be able to converse and articulate ideas with non-finance professionals in the property field.

What you'll get in return
You'll get a base salary of around £130,000 and the chance to take a financial lead in a small and friendly office, and be part of a well invested organisation that operates across the UK. The nature of the role and headcount in the organisation gives you a great opportunity to add value from the off by quickly being exposed to the wider business and stakeholders, and autonomy to be of strategic influence. Based in their central London offices, it's easily accessible from around the city.
