Colorifix was founded by two synthetic biologists who were developing biological sensors to monitor heavy metal contamination in drinking water in rural Nepal.
While testing these sensors in Kathmandu, Jim and Orr began to learn about the enormous impact of the dyeing industry on water and human health; and realised that, rather than simply monitoring the problem, they had the tools to solve it. With some creativity and a bit of luck, Colorifix was founded in 2016.
Colorifix is seeking an inquisitive and sociable Senior Finance Assistant to join its newly formed Finance Division. You would be joining Colorifix at an exciting time, the company having just closed a Series B funding round and being on the cusp of commercialising its R&D and rapidly expanding its team of 40.
You would work closely with the Head of Finance (currently being recruited) and admin colleagues who wear finance hats. Additionally, you will work with all your colleagues to support them with purchasing, customer liaison and to generally have a finger on the pulse of our organisation. Our team of 40 is fragmented, being split across three sites with some staff working remotely, so your ability to proactively build relationships will be highly valued.
You will own most aspects of our bookkeeping and manage the A/R and A/P ledgers. You would communicate with customer and supplier contacts, many of whom are foreign, so your ability to communicate financial information clearly will be an advantage. You might also liaise with our Portuguese subsidiary.
Finally, you would support the Head of Finance as necessary with financial reports, forecasts, and budgets.
You would work predominantly from either our Norwich or Cambridge sites with the option to work from home some days of the week.
With the support of the Finance Assistant and other team members, you would own all functions of the Finance Division, which include:
Title: Senior Finance Assistant
Reports to: Head of Finance
Location: Norwich or Cambridge
Remuneration: £35,000 – £40,000
Holidays : 25 + BH
Apply: Please submit your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the role that you are applying for in the subject line.
