I am looking for a Senior Finance Manager to effectively build a finance function in this “scale-up” environment. You’ll need to be able to work autonomously at times, you’ll need to be a brilliant problem-solver, you’ll need to be proactive, be willing to get in to the detail and, above all, be passionate about putting together a highly efficient accounts function.

  • Supporting the CFO in all finance and commercial activities
  • Running the day to day finance operations, including AP
  • Producing insightful management information
  • Report against objectives and develop a scalable budgeting process
  • Produce and interpret accurate and timely monthly management account packs, including P&L, balance sheet, cash flow, and additional KPIs where required or relevant
  • Provide the exec team with month-end analysis and commentary on performance and KPIs
  • Continuous systems use improvement, ensuring they are utilised to their full potential for reporting and producing meaningful data
  • Payroll and VAT filings
Your background and skills;
  • Strong attention to detail, with an analytical attitude
  • Experience of various finance systems
  • 3-6 years’ post qualified experience
