About Our Client

Circassia is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on allergy, asthma and respiratory. Founded in 2006, Circassia now has an impressive commercial infrastructure as well as marketed products, a pipeline of near-term therapies and a portfolio of next generation treatments targeting multi-$billion market opportunities. Circassia sells its novel, market-leading products for asthma management directly to allergy / asthma specialists in the United States and Germany and intends expanding this to further countries.

In March 2014, Circassia undertook a successful initial public offering on the London Stock Exchange, raising over £200 million. This was the largest flotation for a specialty pharmaceutical company in the world. In June 2015, the Company completed a further share offer, raising £275 million to advance its strategy with the acquisition of Aerocrine and Prosonix and the Company continues to build on its existing portfolio.

The company is poised for significant growth with a substantial pipeline and near term launches of new drugs and as a result is looking to recruit a Group Finance Manager. This newly created position will be a critical part of creating an outstanding finance resource at the Circassia Head Office to support the business in achieving its highly ambitious and determined long term objectives.
