The Head of Investor Relations (IR) is a strategic function of corporate management. The Head of IR is responsible for the provision of oversight and management of all investor-facing and market engagement activities.
Combining the disciplines of finance and communication, the successful candidate will provide the investment community with an accurate portrayal of the company’s performance and prospects.
This includes interaction with “sell-side” equity analysts covering the company and targeted investors and “buy-side” key decision makers including activist investors and portfolio managers from investment funds. Preserving and enhancing the company’s credibility while positively affecting the company’s value relative to that of the overall market is a key facet of this role.

The Head of IR is expected to work closely with the CFO on leading equity fundraising activities and other strategic initiatives where necessary/appropriate (i.e.. on market M&A).
The Head of IR also plays a key role in defining the Company’s external communications strategy (encompassing regulatory newsflow, interim and FY reporting) and in close collaboration with the CFO and CEO key messaging and positioning of the investment proposition for optimal impact.
Internally, the role includes preparing senior executives for their interaction with the investment community and acting as a conduit for information from the investment community to internal constituents across the company.
Earning the trust, confidence, and respect of the company’s CEO, CFO, Board members and leadership team by listening, learning, and building relationships within the company will be critical.
Minimum of 15 years experience in investor relations practice.
