SF Group have been retained by the Chief Financial Officer of a Midlands based banking organisation to find an astute, technically aware and communicative Financial Controller.
As number two to the CFO, you will have full responsibility for all financial, management, statutory and FCA reporting requirements. Crucially this role will also take full responsibility for all commercial finance matters. You will have a big part to play in structuring new products for customers - assessing the profitability or otherwise of these products before and after launch. You will also look at sales and marketing expenditure to ensure that company funds are being allocated and utilised effectively.
You will be a qualified accountant and will have worked within the banking sector previously ideally in a broad, senior finance role. We can only consider candidates from banking organisations and not from other financial services organisations. If working for a large banking institution, you will have been specifically accounting for the core banking business rather than working on something outside of the norm. You will be au fait with FCA / liquidity reporting and be comfortable dealing with senior level staff across not only Finance but Operations, Sales and Risk Management.
Whilst there is no guarantee, this person will be considered for the CFO role when it becomes available in the next 18 months to 3 years. As such considerable career progression is available for the right person.
