Full Time

This Interim Project Accountant role is to drive change and bring an outsourced accounts function in-house, within an SME, fast-growth construction business.

Client Details

This business is an SME division of a larger privately-owned conglomerate. They have grown dramatically in a short space of time to c.£15m turnover, and due to some large, long-term, £multi-million contract wins with new clients are primed for significant further growth.

This represents a great opportunity to work as part of an autonomous, fast-growth SME whilst relying safely in the knowledge that the business is low-risk due to the backing of the much larger conglomerate.


Currently, the accounts function is outsourced to a small practice. However, due to the impending growth that the business is expecting, the practice they have outsourced to will not be able to cope effectively with the increased scale of the business.

As such, the Group Financial Controller would like this Interim Project Accountant to lead on bringing the accounts function in-house, and set up the systems of processes for an in-house finance function for this firm.

Additionally, cash flow management will be a large part of your role as cash is key within this firm - therefore, a strong understanding and knowledge of effectively managing cash flow in previous businesses would be really ideal.


You will be an experienced ACA / ACCA / CIMA / QBE accountant, ideally with some experience of contracting as an interim behind you.

Construction sector experience is not required, and neither is experience of long-term contracting; what is important is demonstrable experience if change and process improvement.

Job Offer

This role will be paying a day rate between £200 - £250 a day. Please apply to Mark Dacre at Michael Page Finance on ************* if you would like to hear more.
