Job Description

The Company:
The firm has developed a superb platform for retail payments through their handheld devices and retail apps. A retailer simply purchases the device, creates an online account and can be set up to process card payments anywhere almost immediately. They have also developed a series of schemes that grow in sophistication as their client's business grows.

The firm is rapidly expanding and on-track to complete the process for a UK banking license, an IPO is planned for 2-3 years and they want to ensure that investors, customers and the regulators are assured of a very strong board governing the business and the processes they must follow for continued growth.

Your new role
You will be required to attend board meetings and occasional ad-hoc meetings on a basis of 1-2 days per month. Your background must include the following:

  • Significant wholesale banking experience (a minimum of 10 years)
  • Strong knowledge and experience of M&A / Capital Markets transactions. The board will be relying on your knowledge and input on acquisitions, alliances and partnerships.
  • Strong knowledge of corporate governance inclusive of operational risk, audit and compliance as it is applied in the UK
  • Significant operational management experience in a C-Level role
  • Knowledge of the road-show process, pre IPO planning etc would be a distinct advantage
  • Knowledge of the fin-tech payments market would be a bonus
  • Candidates must have held a Non-Executive role or been a member of the board of a financial services firm in the past

This is an excellent opportunity to lend your deep knowledge and experience to the continued growth of an outstanding business that continues to grow its customer base across the whole of the EMEA region.
