TC BioPharm (Nasdaq: TCBP) is a publicly traded, clinical-stage cell therapy company developing advanced allogeneic CAR-T cell therapy products for the treatment of cancer, as well as developing gamma delta T cell therapies for the treatment of infectious disease. The company’s unique culture, values, and working environment attracts, retains, and inspires people to give their best.
The business has recently expanded globally and intends to further its expansion over the next few years. Having recently listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange, the capital raised from this and future public offerings will allow the business to further develop its clinical pipeline.
The company now needs to appoint a Group Financial Controller to lead the delivery of new reporting requirements and to ensure processes and controls are in line with company’s rapid growth. The Group Financial Controller will play an active role in in this rapid growth phase, including, but not limited to, leading SEC reporting and establishing Sarbanes-Oxley compliant processes. The approach and attitude of the successful candidate will be particularly important to ensure a longer-term fit with what is currently a relatively small team.
The Group Financial Controller will be a senior member of the Finance Team, directly overseeing financial reporting requirements both for internal and regulatory purposes. The successful candidate must have a willingness to take ownership of reporting and legal compliance in relation to Nasdaq requirements.
This appointment represents an opportunity for an exceptional candidate to be involved in a company which is focussing on the development of cell therapy treatments for cancer and infectious diseases.
