A rapidly growing FMCG business in West London is looking to hire a strong Financial Controller for an initial 6 month contract. There is a strong possibility of the role going permanent for the right candidate. As financial controller you will be reporting into the CFO and will be responsible for overseeing the month-end close across multiple sites, reviewing balance sheet reconciliations, working through process improvements and monthly VAT submission. You will also be preparing monthly financial reports for the board and investors. Also as part of the role you will be challenged with improving the month end close time. The business has quite outdated systems and so needs someone who has previous experience of working closely with the IT function in order to upgrade and modernise them. This will involve a lot of reconciliations and so requires someone who is able to take a hands on approach to this and will see the project through. To be considered you must be a fully qualified accountant and ideally have FMCG experience. You must have a strong systems focus to your CV and also be able to demonstrate extensive process improvement experience. Candidates must be available either immediately or within 1 to 2 weeks notice.
