JOIN US – Headstart Financials Ltd


We're growing! 18 months, 10X growth and a new office in Croydon (from September 2019). We need people though. The right kind of people; the obsessive-compulsive, eagle-eyed ones. You need to like numbers, order and highlighter pens (and hopefully before long, Excel spreadsheets; your new best friend!). If all these sound too much, look away now! But if this sounds like you, we want to hear from you RIGHT NOW!

We are a start-up. And it's early days. Other than some colleagues you will see on Zoom regularly, you will be working closely with me, the Founding Principal in our new office in Croydon. As it's such a small team, chemistry is key. I'm a personal believer of "meaningful work and meaningful relationships."

"Meaningful work" means you will always understand why you do, what you do and the impact of your work on our clients. It does not mean the absence of "tedious" work. Although if it gets too tedious too often, we should be asking the question "Can we do this better; i.e. automate this?"

"Meaningful relationships" means if you don't like me, it can be a bit of a problem! In larger organisations, they call this "team-fit" or "culture-fit". So we should absolutely check this out for a few months, lest we drive each other up the wall, and get no work done. That aside, it also means that we care about our clients, and seek to make a difference to their businesses. I'm not in this for mindless paper-shuffling. Hopefully, you care as much about impact too.
