With a sizeable team (c40 staff), the Director of Group Finance will be a pivotal support to the CFO and responsible for:
  • All Group financial reporting including monthly consolidations and production of half year and full year published accounts
  • Group Tax and Treasury matters
  • Transaction processing for all Group companies via Transaction Shared Service Centre
  • Group Admin and Payroll
  • Group internal controls, procedures and technical accounting matters

The Director of Group Finance will interface into the business divisional FD’s, Company Secretary and the Group Director of FP&A as well as across the broader organisation.

The successful candidate will be a technically strong finance professional who possesses the gravitas and credibility to build relationships across the business and operate effectively at Board level.

You must also be an effective manager, someone who can develop and transform a finance function with the objective of delivering a best in class approach and outstanding service to internal “customers”.
