Financial & Commercial Manager
£40,000 - £50,000 + Package

The last 12 months has been an exciting time for my client and the future is looking exceptionally bright.  Having relocated business operations to Telford and received heavy investment from their new investors they are creating a bespoke facility utilising competitive technologies within a sector valued in the billions and growing.

Having operated successfully under private ownership for many years whilst forging a longstanding and harmonious relationship with their customers, their recent corporate investors are looking to propel them to the next stage of growth.  Since the transaction significant investment has been made in new Plant & Equipment which will allow the business to increase volumes and diversify its offering.

The challenge here is not to be underestimated.  Acting to fully integrate the business into group approaches / methodology you will affect all areas of the business, operations, the financials and the culture.  The “to do list” will include:

  • Design and implementation of a full suite of Management Information including a daily and weekly dashboard of KPI’s and monthly Management Accounts
  • Analysis of KPI’s to assist with operational improvements
  • Financial modelling and analysis
  • Managing the existing team in the delivery of AP, AR, Payroll, Bank and Cash
  • As finance number 1 on site you will be the go to person for all finance queries
  • Implementation of corporate controls and process for all areas of the business not just finance
  • Assisting with cultural change, from a small company to a more fast paced corporate culture
This role would suit someone who is newly fully qualified or more experienced, with a commercial outlook but who understands the importance of giving due consideration to financial accounting issues, processes and controls.  You will have a challenging and inquisitive personality, someone who is happy to take the lead with new projects looking at new ways of working both in and outside of finance.  You will be happy to roll up your sleeves and work down in the detail.  You will be a driven individual who genuinely cares about what they do and how it is done, valuing a fun working environment and hard work.  You will be hungry for success, someone who is able to see the opportunity in a growing subsidiary of a larger corporate business.  A career defining opportunity awaits and with succession planning firmly in mind, as the business grows further it is foreseen that this role will develop for a talented individual.
