Finance Manager

Job description

Get ready to lead operational excellence across finance whilst future-proofing scalability at our customer-centric, product-focussed, internationally expanding, SaaS startup!

Who is Castor?

Castor is one of the fastest growing healthtech startups. Our mission is to bring medical research into the digital age. Why? Because medical research is still largely run using free-text, paper and spreadsheets. 

By enabling our users to capture high quality data and making it machine readable, we are fundamentally changing the broken evidence based medicine process. You’ve found yourself a company with a true purpose. Learn more at and on our Life at Castor instagram channel.

  • Managing, coaching and growing Finance, supporting your team to set and meet their goals

  • Experience owning and delivering finance in a fast-moving, changing or growth environment
  • An analytical mind with experience using Excel or ‘Google Sheets’ including advanced functionality
  • A people-focussed approach with experience leading and growing finance teams
  • The ability and expertise to scale and improve finance operations
