Sedex is a global organisation dedicated to driving improvements in ethical and responsible business practices across global supply chains. As one of the world’s leading organisations for helping companies manage responsible sourcing, we operate a collaborative online platform that allows our members to collect and share responsible sourcing data and identify risks in their supply chain. Our collaborative approach allows buyers and suppliers to share and exchange data, helping to better manage their social and environmental performance, and implement measures to protect people, the environment and their business.
Sedex is embarking upon an ambitious new strategy to triple revenue over the next five years; the finance function, and thus the CFO, has a crucial and demanding role to play in driving and executing that strategy. This role is wide reaching: the CFO will be empowered to own the finance platform, leading a dedicated finance team and driving crucial M&A activity. The CFO will provide strategic and operational advice to the CEO, Board and rest of the executive team, developing and maintaining financial and investment strategies to ensure the long-term growth, financial security, well-being and sustainability of Sedex, and by extension its wider stakeholders.
Candidates will be outstanding financial and commercial leaders, bringing an entrepreneurial and enabling mindset as well as a breadth of experience, ideally in organisations going through significant transformation and change. Ideally, candidates will also have previous experience of M&A, having successfully completed transactions from start to finish. Highly effective at strategic and operational levels, they will also have a strong heart for Sedex’s work to create transparency in global supply chains and make it simpler to do business that is good for everyone.
