The Role My client is a £18mill turnover business, who recently received a capital investment allowing their growth plans to be realised. The Financial Controllers Position has been created to take over the finance function as the current Head of Finance retires. This has created a fantastic opertunity for an up and coming Qualified Accountant to step into a role which has the scope to overhaul Finance & Operations in its entirety.

My client is conscious that they haven't fully embraced the changing landscape of finance, and have been running with a finance team which has been insular in their approach. This is the key area that we are looking to address, and we are looking to create a center of excellence which drives:
  • Budgeting
  • Forcasting
  • Business Partnering
  • Revenue Recognition
  • WIP

My client was at the point of critical mass where they require a finance professional who can help steer the direction of finance, while also taking hands on involvement in the day to day commercial business engagement. The retirement of the Finance Head, has allowed a clean transition into this

You will be in a pivotal role within the business, engaged with both the Commercial and Transactional sides of finance, providing a conduit to the board and helping drive organisational efficiencies.

Creation of robust and effective internal controls, with a clear vision of how this will form the bedrock of the organisations growth and is imperative to the success of this position. The growth plans are such that my client is looking for a qualified accountant who has the dynamism and know-how to help achieve their current goals, while planning for the future.

Your Profile Applicants must be qualified ACA, CIMA or ACCA and be able to demonstrate how they have provided commercial and strategic support to an organization.

This is a position which my client is looking for someone to step up into and demonstrate their growth potential appose to a profile which is stepping back in their career. Therefore, my client is open to seeing 1st moves from Manager Level or 2nd moves from practice.

The role that would best suit a talented qualified accountant who has the ability to communicate at a high level, build relationships, develop processes, and understand the necessity of Finance in an internal stake-holding facing position.

Salary & Benefits In order to attract the best talent in the marketplace, my client has pitched the salary at circa £60,000
