What can we tell you about this fantastic business?

We don’t want to ruin the surprise just yet as that would be telling but what we can say is that this is a truly fascinating business. This is the perfect opportunity for someone that has strong technical knowledge with solid management experience. If you are on an upward trajectory in your career and want to find yourself in the top finance job in two years, then this is the right post for you!

What will be keeping you busy?

Acting as the number 2 in the finance department (for now), you will oversee bookkeeping, accounts receivable, accounts payable, cost control, internal audit, budget preparation and forecasting. You will work closely with the current FD to manage the team and drive high performance across it, delivering an excellent service to the business.

Acting as a champion of change, you will oversee and embed the rollout of new financial systems to the business along with other key initiatives. You will also assist the FD on key projects and ensure that the key requirements of the business are met from a financial standpoint.

Does this sound like you?

We are looking for someone that is fully qualified (the client specifically mentioned CIMA). If you have relevant experience of managing both financial and management accounting functions and have been working at this level, then this post could be right for you.

This is an international business of a reasonable size. We are looking for someone that has worked in businesses that are of a similar order of magnitude. Industry experience is not important, we are looking for people with strong technical experience that have held full ownership of budgeting, planning, forecasting, P+L, Balance Sheet and Cashflow etc.

It is essential that you have strong stakeholder engagement skills and you must be comfortable working with the leadership team. They want someone that will be ready to step up to FD level in a couple of years and for this reason you must have a highly commercial outlook.
