Rutherford Cross retained by Circularity Capital to appoint a Financial Controller, based in Edinburgh.

Founded in 2015, Circularity Capital is a specialist private equity fund manager with a mission to deliver value for investors by supporting SME growth and innovation in the circular economy.

Circularity Capital uses the circular economy as a framework to support investee businesses in decoupling their growth from resource constraints, enhance resource productivity and drive competitive advantage. The team has specific expertise and a powerful network in the circular economy which they use to identify, source and secure proprietary investment opportunities and add value to portfolio businesses through access to talent, market information and new business development opportunities.

Circularity Capital’s investors include financial institutions, global corporations, and leading family offices. At the heart of their ability to create value for investors is a focus on combining specialist expertise in the circular economy with institutional quality private equity experience.

The business is now seeking a Financial Controller which will incorporate a blend of accounting and stakeholder management, requiring a high calibre individual who is strong interpersonally, well organised, detail conscious and possesses excellent technical skills. A background in private equity would be useful, but more important is that the individual is experienced in the accounting, commercial and operational requirements of a growing, entrepreneurial business.

This role is aimed at a professionally qualified accountant with relevant post-qualification experience. The ideal candidate will have a keen eye for driving process improvements and developing good working relationships across the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a driven and entrepreneurial accountant to play a key role in the continued growth within a market leading business.
