Posted 30 October by Dragon PSR
Easy Apply Ending soon

Our client, an industry leading manufacturer and preferred partner to many global businesses and organisations, is synonymous with the highest quality products and solutions. Low double digit in revenues, this autonomous company is part of an ambitious PE backed group that is well positioned for growth.

The effective management of such growth necessitates the strengthening of the existing finance team. As such, the business seeks to recruit a Financial Controller in a newly created role.

Reporting to the Group CFO, your key responsibilities will include…

*Operational role as part of the senior management team.
*Pro-actively leading the company on all financial matters, with full responsibility for the day-to-day running of the finance function.
*Production of group consolidation and company monthly management accounts with commentary; forecasts, budgets, plans and cash-flow forecasting/management
*Provision of insightful quality management information eg customer/contract reports and sales/profitability analyses.
*Driving efficiencies and improving systems, processes and controls.
*Management and development of a small team.
*Preparation of year end accounts and auditor liaison.
*Building strong working relationships, both internal and external.

Suitable candidates will highly likely be qualified (ACMA/ACA/ACCA) with a minimum of a couple of PQE years in industry under their belt, although we will consider an outstanding non-qualified with the right experience and personal traits. Manufacturing/engineering experience is advantageous, but certainly is not a pre-requisite. The transferability of skills and the personal traits are much more important.

We’re looking for someone bright with a positive attitude, an individual who is inquisitive, a team player, keen to learn and develop, and with an ownership mentality. Someone who wants to get out from behind their desk to understand how the business works, understand the key drivers, understand WIP/stock and efficiencies. This ain’t a pure number crunching role! We need a calm, level-headed relationship builder, who nonetheless has the bit between their teeth. So a fairly robust character - you can’t be precious or over-sensitive - someone who can take the rough with the smooth and roll with the punches. It won’t be a bed of roses; there will be plenty to get your teeth into.

In return, an exciting, challenging career opportunity is offered. The CFO will provide the support to ensure you have the platform to fulfil your potential and succeed in this growing business. The rest is up to you.

If of interest, then please forward your cv advising of current package details. Your application and any discussions will be treated in strict confidence.
