Elevation Senior Finance are delighted to be supporting a long established, Rotherham based, manufacturing business as they seek to appoint a Financial Controller (FD Designate) to join their growing senior management team. This well run and profitable SME business has experienced significant growth over the last 12 months and with that continuing, despite the Covid-19 outbreak, they are keen to strengthen their finance function with this appointment.

Due it's rapid and continued growth, the company has struggled to ensure that its infrastructure and back office functions have been able to keep up with the sales and operations. With that in mind, the Financial Controller position will be a varied, fast paced and challenging role that will require the incumbent to balance the development of the accounting processes/systems with playing an active role as part of the senior management team. Once up and running, the Financial Controller will work closely with the Ops Director and so it is essential that all applicants not only have a recognised accountancy qualification (CIMA/ACA/ACCA) but also have recent experience working for a company in the manufacturing industry.

For this to be a successful hire, it is vital that the in-coming candidate is willing to 'roll their sleeves up' to re-organise, develop and fully understand the workings of the finance department to ensure that more accurate, insightful and timely financial information is produced and available. In addition, my client is looking for a commercially minded accountant who can keep tight control of the finances but also see the bigger picture and present the board team with analysis that adds genuine value and supports the businesses growth.

This company has a long standing tradition for producing a high quality product and delivering market leading customer service. With that in mind, I am seeking to find a candidate who buys-in to the importance of that and can mirror that level of quality and performance within the finance function and wider business. The successful applicant will initially join the business as Financial Controller but there will be a clear plan in place for that individual to progress to Finance Director within the space of 12 months, so this is a great role for any ambitious Financial Controller to take the next step in their career.

There is no doubt that this is a rare opportunity to become available in South Yorkshire and so if you are a Financial Controller who has ambitions to become a Finance Director in the future, please get in touch for a confidential conversation.
