Job description

If you want to rekindle your love of the world of early-stage fundraising, and want to do so in some of the most exciting and fastest growing sectors in the market, then apply below and we’ll be in touch..

We’re expanding our Raising Finance team based in London and are looking for a stand-out Associate Director to be part of our growth in the exciting world of venture fundraising. The team is led by Sarah Abrahams, who joined Cooper Parry in 2020, having previously led Grant Thornton’s Growth Finance business, to drive our strategy in this space. You will be part of a wider cross discipline Tech & High Growth team who are solely focused on supporting venture-backed fast growth companies through their scaling journey.

We’re killing it....

We’re one of the fastest growing accountancy firms in the UK. Behind it all? Our awesome people and a laser-focus on creating a culture where they’re happy, engaged, and playing to their strengths every day.

That’s why we’re the #1 Accountancy Firm to Work For in the UK. And that’s why we’ve featured in the Top 25 of the UK’s Best Companies to Work For – for four years straight.

About the role and you...

You will be an energetic, talented and determined individual experienced in the field of early-stage fundraising with either direct experience in the technology sector in a previous firm, or with a strong desire to specialise in the technology space and work with start-ups and scale-ups to support their growth journey.

You will hold a financial qualification and have corporate finance experience under your belt, being comfortable taking the lead on deals, working direct with founder-led teams and committed to providing exceptional client service whilst building excellent relationships. You will be passionate about supporting businesses on their own growth journey in the tech and high growth sector and excited about being able to help to really shape the future of the team as they grow.

You will be comfortable in all aspects of working with clients, from first client pitches, project managing preparatory fundraising work and leading deals from first investor meetings to completion. You will be part of our Raising Finance team sitting within our Tech & High Growth business unit and well supported by colleagues at all levels on the deals you take a lead on.

As a team we operate in a highly flexible but well-connected structure, built around core objectives and deliverables, with the choice, freedom, and trust to work how you want to work. We expect an “all in” attitude to building the business - driven by a passion and desire to be recognised as the best early-stage funding advisor in the market. And the best company to work for in the UK (we don’t think small).

What's in it for you...

At Cooper Parry our mindset is simple. We only do things if we believe we can be No.1.We start doing that by putting our people at the heart of our culture. Why? Pretty simple really… if our people love working here then they do amazing work. That’s why we offer things like:

• Competitive salaries aligned to big firms.

• Open holidays.

• No dress code - “Wear something!”
