Head of Finance (must have retail or wholesale experience)
Ignata Finance Group are delighted to be exclusively partnering our client in their search for a newly created Head of Finance position.
The business has had sales of £60m last year and continues to thrive. Profitable and sustainable, this is a really exciting brand which you would be proud to work for.
80% of the business is wholesale with a small number of retail outlets in the UK and Europe. There is currently an exciting investment plan (specifically in their ecommerce platform), demonstrating long-term growth.
Due to the current Head of Finance being promoted to Finance Director, we are exclusively looking for an A* candidate to take the finance team of 7 on a journey of growth & transformation.
Knowledge, Skills, Behaviours and Experience Required:
  • Relevant accounting qualification (ACCA, ACA, CIMA).
  • Working as a Financial Controller / Head of Finance or senior finance role looking for autonomy and breadth to the role.
  • To be considered, I'm afraid retail and/or wholesale experience is mandatory.
  • Small team management is key.
  • Hands-on attitude is critical.
  • Ideal candidates will have worked in a small, to medium-sized business rather than a large corporate.
The role is paying £70k - £80k (depending on your experience) and my client is hoping to have the successful person in the office (London) 3 days per week
