Head of Financial Control and Reporting

My client is a significant, autonomous UK subsidiary of a major European group operating highly visible B2C/B2B services in a challenging market.

The organisation is currently going through considerable change due to both internal and external factors. As such, this role will play a key part in helping to shape the business reporting and support the delivery of the finance strategy.

The main elements will include leading a financial shared service centre, managing the delivery of a new ERP system, heading the financial reporting for the UK Head Office, supporting commercial decision making and leading on treasury management.

You will be a professionally qualified accountant with a strong technical background and a successful track record of operating at a senior level in a complex, large organisation. Whilst previous experience of managing a shared service centre is not a prerequisite, high levels of drive, energy and the desire to drive change are key requirements, as is the ability to display strong leadership and to develop a high performance team.

This is an excellent opportunity to play a crucial part in a major change management process alongside a strong and enthusiastic management team. There is scope to make a significant contribution to the organisation with realistic prospects for future progression to an operational finance director role in the medium term.

Interested candidates should send their cv including current remuneration package quoting ref JLW 29808 to the company’s retained recruitment partner.
