Are you a commercial and value-add focused Finance Manager or Financial Controller, but getting stuck with the mundane stat accounting work? Do you want a role that would genuinely enhance your career?

An ambitious and growing SME based in Wakefield is seeking to recruit a hands-on, commercial and technically competent Head of Finance to lead their finance team. This is an exciting time to join an organisation who will offer an excellent opportunity to develop your career and be directly exposed to decisions that influence the direction of the business.

Key Responsibilities:
*Managing and mentoring a small finance team.
*Providing and interpreting financial information, working across different departments to support the business growth and strategic decision-making processes.
*Budgeting and forecasting.
*Prepare presentations for the board and the Directors.
*Preparing the monthly management accounts and Board MI packs.

Whilst clearly there will be an element of statutory reporting work and general finance duties within the role, the impact the successful candidate can make into the business is where your influence will be felt.

The ideal candidate will:

*Be fully ACA, CIMA or ACCA qualified.
*Have previous experience within the SME sector.
*Have a growth focused mind-set and be a proactive self-starter.
