Job Description

Head of UK, Director, Fund Administration

This role is with one of the fastest growing and most reputable European fund administration service providers. The position is responsible for all of the London office's activity and will play a key role in the strategy and subsequent growth of the business. The company is seeking a qualified accountant with experience of both fund and corporate administration practices and at least 7 years PQE.

The business itself holds one of the best reputations within the fund administration field and services a mix of large and boutique fund management businesses across private equity, credit/debt and real estate. The London office is currently 15 strong with the company's total headcount being around 50 across all locations (London, Jersey, Guernsey and Luxembourg).

In terms of the role, the primary focus will be to lead and manage the London team as a whole. This involves working with all departments; client administration, sales, marketing and senior management to ensure the business grows at the required level whilst never compromising quality. A full job specification can be supplied should the role be of interest.

This is an opportunity for someone with fund accounting or fund administration experience to not just lead a team but take responsibility for growing a business; to take a step away from day to day accounting and move into a directorial position instead.

In terms of remuneration, the budget is broad and competitive - in line with the wider fund management industry (not the fund administration industry). If of interest, please do not hesitate to apply.
