CFO - Part time remote

Job Description

StaffCircle® is an employee experience platform which combines Internal Communications, Culture and Performance Management into a single all-in-one system which helps businesses improve management, communication and feedback of remote workers.

 

We have all seen first-hand how the world of work has changed and now performance management, internal communications and employee feedback is fundamentally flawed in most workplaces resulting in poor communications and inconsistent performance management. This lack of progression causes low morale, low productivity and negative experience resulting in poor performance. Now with many Companies moving to a hybrid working model, these issues are compounded, and companies need to find a solution. 

 

StaffCircle® was born in 2018 and built for managing remote and hybrid workforces.


The brainchild of Serial Tech Entrepreneur Mark Seemann, the StaffCircle® platform creates a place where communications and productivity can flow on any device in any location helping to better empower, engage and enhance every company's most valuable asset – their people.

We began our journey in 2018, with and initial 3-man team of Mark Seemann, Brian Merton and Neil Merton who designed and developed the platform in the initial 12 months.

 

In 2019 we launched to small UK businesses and gained our first 10. In the past 18 months we have grown to over 60 customers, securing late seed funding from 2 of the UK’s best-known VCs and also gained both US and Canadian Customers.

 

 

We are currently at late Seed stage heading towards Series A in the next 12 months and are looking for an exceptional Finance Director (part time) to help us grow and become Series A ready. Initially this role is for 4 days per month but will expand as the business scales up.
