Financial Controller

Posted 31 July by The One Group Easy Apply

A Peterborough success story, an owner managed business which is a rapidly growing and successful SME manufacturer, with fantastic brand reputation and an impressive order book. So, the finance function must be great right? Not quite.

I'm working with a driven and commercial FD looking to recruit a right-hand person to help transform a "failing" finance function within a burgeoning business. The financial controller will lead, mentor and manage a team of 5 and be responsible for the modernisation of a capable, though archaic finance function.

If you are looking for a steady financial controllership where month end runs itself, everything is well automated, and the management accounts need little insight this isn't the right role.

However, if you are ready to drive an ambitious change programme, tighten controls, processes and procedures and produce management accounts that will give the board a little more insight as to what the business is actually doing day to day it might be just be right.

It's not a big glossy corporate so if you're expecting a huge car allowance, private pension and dental care schemes you won't find them. But this is the opportunity to earn your stripes in a business where you can add immediate value with clear progression to become FD within the next 18-24months.

If you're ready for a challenge, are a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) with rounded industry experience encompassing financial & statutory reporting, insightful management accounts and leading a team I want to hear from you.
