Join our team  

Our latest vacancies are :

December 2018: CEO

Location: Cardiff

Salary: Base salary subject to skills and experience, plus highly geared incentive scheme including share options

Hours: Full time

Contract type: Permanent

We are looking for a CEO to lead the next stage of growth of a tech start-up company with enormous potential. We seek someone with an entrepreneurial mind set to lead the commercial development of an innovative security scanning system based on technology spun out of Cardiff University. The technology recently attracted significant press attention after a successful demonstration at Cardiff airport.    


Sequestim Ltd. is an early stage start-up funded by external commercial investors that has secured contracts from UK Government’s Defence and Security Accelerator to develop a prototype product. We are looking for somebody to head up the company through a first fund raising round in 2019 and take the product to operational prototype stage. You will lead the fund raising activities, coordinate the development team, currently based in Cardiff University, and promote the company to potential customers and collaborators. 

About You

Previous experience of technology start-ups, the aviation or security industries, and fund raising is desirable but not essential, but you will need to learn our business quickly, solve problems, providing leadership to the team and coordinating regularly with the Board of Directors.  It is essential that you have some basic physics or engineering knowledge, but more importantly, an entrepreneurial desire to establish and grow a strong commercial venture. The ability to command the respect of the academic team and communicate effectively in all commercial scenarios will be crucial. You must show the technical and business attributes necessary to drive growth in a start-up environment. 


This project is a commercial collaboration within Cardiff University. You will initially be based within the company’s facilities there, but you will need to establish independent premises nearby. Travel both nationally and internationally is expected in order to perform marketing and customer liaison tasks. 


We offer a salary depending on relevant skills and experience, with holiday allowance, pension contribution and the possibility of flexible working. This is a full time position with a remuneration package that includes a substantial share options scheme to ensure close engagement with the company and its future.
