Chief Financial Officer | North of England | up to £200,000 plus bonus up to 75% + generous benefits 


The Role

  • International industrial sector group seeks a CFO for a wholly-owned subsidiary business based in the UK
  • The fast-growing group require a CFO to bring heavyweight commercial bench strength to the management team of this subsidiary, which has revenues well into nine figures
  • This is a brilliant opportunity for an ambitious FD to take the next step up into a broad, highly operational and very commercial CFO role
  • Will suit an experienced FD from asset-intensive, operational sectors such as manufacturing, oil and gas, infrastructure etc., preferably with hands-on experience as FD of an autonomous business
  • Most importantly, the successful candidate will have ambitions and capabilities beyond the orthodox FD remit and be someone who can use this role as an ideal transition to CEO – quite possibly within the group itself.

Required Experience

  • A graduate with first-class academic qualifications.
  • Qualified accountant, ACA, CIMA or equivalent (ideally Big 4).
  • Impeccable technical skills and a track record of robust financial reporting and management are essential.
  • A track record of contributing commercially and strategically to the direction of a business.
  • Experience of a capital-intensive, asset-based business
  • Hands-on experience in preparing detailed budgets, business plans and maintaining a long-term financial model for a business, as well as developing and reporting on financial and non-financial KPIs
  • Previous experience of operating within a small management team to deliver value
  • Experience gained within a smaller, privately-owned business would be advantageous.

This role represents an excellent opportunity to join a unique business where you will be able to influence directly the achievement of significant operational transformation. Compensation comprising both base salary and discretionary bonus will be highly competitive.
