We are Multiverse, a tech scaleup with a social mission. We’re creating a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to university and corporate training, through the power of professional apprenticeships.
We’re one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe and rapidly expanding in North America, working with over 500 clients including Facebook, KPMG, Morgan Stanley and the NHS. In June 2022, we broke the EdTech funding record (again!) by announcing our $220m Series D, making Multiverse the UK’s first ever EdTech unicorn.
Join us on our journey to democratising access to the best careers and learning opportunities.
We're going through a period of exceptional growth, and we are investing in a Strategic Finance team. This team will lead strategic analysis as well as complex and cross-functional projects, implementing and optimising new processes that collect data and share insights and KPIs that span across the organisation. This is a creative role that requires both analytic and interpersonal skills to identify opportunities for improvement and sell them to key stakeholders.
The Finance Associate will be the first team member reporting to the Head of Strategic Finance and will lead strategic analysis as well as assist on analysing corporate development opportunities that may arise.
This is a high leverage position where you’ll have significant access to company-wide data as well as stakeholders, collaborating with our largest teams and driving analytical and operational excellence.
This role will include:
Owning the analysis underpinning key strategic decisions such as apprentice growth forecasting, KPI derivation, delivery cost measurement, and CAC and CLV calculations.
Proactively identifying insights in large data sets to drive commercial objectives
Creating relationships and processes that allow information from other teams to flow smoothly into our models for efficient analysis
Collaborating with key stakeholders to determine the best way to present, display and update key findings so that they are immediately actionable by key departments
Owning financial models, valuation and other analysis that are key to evaluating potential Corporate Development initiatives
Projects such as forecasting modelling, cost analysis and modelling, financial modelling, competitive analysis, valuation analysis, pricing analysis, and more
The right candidate will have:
Outstanding data analysis and presentation skills; you enjoy working with large data sets to draw important conclusions, you can present key ideas convincingly, and you are able to work quickly
Significant (multi-year) experience in either financial analysis, large data analysis, or business planning roles
A functional knowledge of accounting gained through experience in due-diligence, audit, or other financial analysis
Results-focused mindset, bringing excellence to everything you do: we need someone who can hit the ground running and make a significant impact, fast!
Experience building three statement financial models
Strong track record of leading complex, ambiguous projects with multiple partners successfully
Comfort with Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel; knowledge of Python and SQL a plus
Highly productive and motivated by solving tough problems
Strong hustle - with no aversion to 'rolling up your sleeves' and solving immediate business problems and projects
Team player who is comfortable working in a high-growth, constantly evolving environment
Self-starter who thrives in fast-paced environments with minimal supervision
Proven track record of gaining and maintaining trust from key stakeholders across functions
Time off - 27 days holiday, plus 6 additional days off: 1 life event day, 2 volunteer days and 4 company-wide wellbeing days
Health & wellbeing - private medical Insurance with Bupa, a medical cashback scheme, life insurance, and access to Spill - all in one mental health support
Hybrid & remote working - weekly or monthly visits to the London office

All posts in Multiverse involve some degree of responsibility for safeguarding.

What employees are saying
There is a lot of flexible working at Multiverse, especially since our work spans many time zones (US West Coast to UK); different folks work together at different times. I can plan early days when I need to connect with folks ahead of me (time zone-wise) or later on days when I'm working with US folks and doing heads-down work. I appreciate that my leaders know that I will get my work done, and if I need to go to appointments or take time mid-day, that is supported.
