As the most senior member of the finance team at SDN you will have significant influence in leading and shaping the future of our organisation.
Job Location: Flexible, home and/or our London office. We are currently asking everyone to attend the office on a designated day once a month, so we have the opportunity to meet and collaborate in-person. Outside of this one day a month – plus any other tasks where it is necessary to be in the office to fulfil the duties of your role – it will be up to you whether you want to work fully from home or to attend the office more regularly. We are more interested in the quality and content of your work, and your ability to work with others and to deadlines, than where you work.

Role Overview: The Finance Director is the number one finance position in the organisation which has overall responsibility for the finance function and administrative operations, including HR, legal, risk, facilities and IT.
