Rutherford Cross is delighted to be retained by Axis Studios in Glasgow to recruit a Finance Director

Axis Studios is an award-winning entertainment company, founded in Glasgow in 2000. Since its inception, it has grown substantially, tripling its turnover to £15m between 2015 and 2018.

It boasts an international team of directors, visual effects supervisors, designers, artists, animators, and producers, working across three studios, in Glasgow, Bristol and London. As well as being the largest studio in Scotland, Axis also has one of the largest animation and visual effects teams in the UK.

Axis forged its worldwide reputation with the biggest video game publishers, producing many award-winning trailers such as the much-vaunted trailer for Dead Island (Deep Silver), which won a Gold Cannes Lion Award, The International Andy Award and many more.

Axis then moved into other areas of entertainment, such as television, film, and theme parks. Recent work in these areas has seen Axis win awards including a Daytime Emmy Award for Lost in Oz (Amazon Studios), an AEFA Award for Happy (SyFy/Netflix), a BIFA Award for visual effects on the feature film Earlyman (Aardman Animations/Studio Canal), and a Royal Television Society Craft Award for Kiss Me First (Channel 4/Netflix).

With a staff of over 250 across the three studio locations and ambitions for further growth in animated feature film, visual effects, and the origination of its own intellectual property, Axis Studios is looking to recruit an ambitious and commercially minded Finance Director.  The position will play a strategic part in the business in order to achieve its significant growth plans. Reporting to the CEO, the position will be a commercial and strategic one, requiring a motivated and experienced individual.
