The Opportunity 

Number one in finance for a well established and flourishing SME based in the Peak District.

This is a professional and ambitious owner-led group.  You’ll be joining as number 1 in finance – reporting directly to the primary shareholder.

It’s the full train set in finance – acting as a vital sounding board to the Directors and being a pivotal member of the senior leadership team. 

You’ll be hands on but strategically aware – someone comfortable getting down into the weeds where required but also someone with the commercial awareness and confidence to influence business direction and key tactical & strategic decision making.

You’ll be responsible for overhauling the existing financial controls and embedding valuable MI.  You’ll be all over budgets, forecasts, project costing, cash management…  you’ll have a vital finger on the pulse of the cost trends, project progress, cash forecast and margin / profit drivers.

You’ll also manage relationships with key external stakeholders (banks / auditors / insurers etc).

This is a varied, rewarding and secure Head of Finance role (scope to become FD proper) within a welcoming and interesting group of privately held businesses.  You’ll enjoy plenty of grown up autonomy and will be working for an approachable and highly talented MD.


  • Experience as number 1 in finance for a diverse and reasonably complex SME.
  • Ability to coach and lead a small team effectively.
  • A hands on approach to producing detailed board packs for owner-level review.
  • Previous experience of ensuring cash is well managed and robust controls are in place to ensure budgets, forecasts and variance reporting is accurate and insightful.
