Head of Finance

Posted 5 February by The One Group

Our client is an evolving and growing business which is experiencing continued success.

As a direct result of this success, they are now looking to add a post-qualified accountant to their team, reporting to the remotely based CFO heading up their small finance team.

This is a broad role that will continue to grow and duties will include;

Taking overall responsibility for the P&L, cashflow and balance sheet
Reviewing and overseeing the preparation of monthly management accounts
Reporting via the management accounts and related board pack, including business analysis & commentary on results
Consolidating all financial reporting into group reporting structure
Adherence to UK GAAP for statutory reporting
Compliance with statutory corporation tax, VAT and PAYE requirements
Introducing a more formal control environment to mitigate financial risk, whilst also seeking efficiencies and smarter ways of working
Budgeting and forecasting
Liaising with various stakeholders
Ownership and coordination of all budget and forecasting processes
Business analysis and commercial support
Building relationships with the wider business and working closely with management to improve performance from a financial perspective
Business partnering
Tracking of business and financial KPIs
Overseeing a small team responsible for the transactional finance
Working closely with group finance, in the development and implementation of an internal audit programme to ensure that the company complies with financial procedures and regulations
Ad hoc projects

The suitable candidate will be a post qualified individual with the technical expertise to drive the role forward and the interpersonal skills to develop the function.

Experience working in a similar role for an SME is also very important alongside up to date experience of UK GAAP reporting, staff management, budget preparation and delivery and working at a strategic level to drive a business forward.

Experience within the education sector would be a distinct advantage although not essential but strong IT skills, familiarity with accounting systems and an analytical and driven mindset are key to the successful delivery of this challenging and exciting opportunity.
