Use your finance skills to create a better world.

We are a rapidly growing sustainable office furniture company creating beautiful offices at 80% less environmental impact and half the cost of furniture made from virgin resources.

We are looking for a Finance Manager, who will report directly to the Managing Director, to help grow the company, including through international expansion.

About the Company:

Our ambition is to become a global office furniture and office design company though our circular economy business model that is creating a positive impact on the world and creating sustainable competitive advantages for us.

The company grew revenues by 80% and was profitable in 2020, despite COVID, and we are aiming to continue our rapid growth. We plan to set up our first overseas presence in Europe in 2022/23 and, following that, expand into more European countries. We are currently closing a funding round and will likely raise more before a trade sale or floatation in the longer term. The Finance Manager will be heavily involved in these activities.
