The Opportunity

Immediate requirement for a confident Qualified finance professional seeking a new challenge to begin in June 2021. 

You’ll be the primary finance contact for the £20m turnover business (a thriving subsidiary of a large profitable group).  Your role reports to the MD locally and you will provide a key financial sounding board to the Directors / senior leadership team.

The business is expanding and you will play an integral part in improving controls, developing reporting and providing valuable business partnering. 

You’ll provide credible and timely P&L reporting to allow decisions to be made efficiently and based upon reliable financial evidence.  This is a business with a high volume of data and you will need excellent Excel skills and an ability to distill the financial information to provide easy-to-interpret summaries around costs, variances, margins, profit stream etc. 

You will manage the finance team (5) and have an ability to bring out the best in others as a confident and approachable mentor. 

You will be:

  • A professional, diligent and commercially-astute finance professional with a track record of success within challenging SME environments. 
  • Hands on in your approach and comfortable in a role which requires plenty of ‘doing’ and well as reviewing the work of others. 
  • Someone who is able to proactively deliver change – you will enjoy enhancing controls and processes and improving efficiencies across the finance team. 
  • Someone who enjoys communicating with non finance colleagues.
  • Calm, approachable and level-headed.  There is plenty to get stuck into and challenges to overcome – the MD is looking for someone who can make inroads to the change in a calm and systematic manner. 
  • Qualified 
  • Able to start immediately. 

There is potential scope for the role to become permanent.
