Job Description

Reporting to the Group Financial Controller in Head Office, Sutton Coldfield and also key business partner to the Divisional Managing Director, this person will gain some excellent exposure to a PLC Board and be responsible for driving business performance and challenging strategic decisions.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Work closely with local and head office management to support high quality financial decisions
  • Manage and develop a motivated finance team
  • Drive financial efficiency within the division
  • Key focus on forward-looking commercial and investment decisions to support financial planning

The Successful Applicant

You will be a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) and will have managed a small team as well as provided business support. A commercial thinker, you will identify risks and opportunities in new and existing contracts and therefore become a highly valued business partner to an ambitious and driven Managing Director.

Although this is a growing division of a PLC, the successful individual may currently be working in a larger business with a narrower role and looking for that next step whereby he/she can influence more.

Experience of working in a SAAS environment would be beneficial but not essential. Excel modelling will be incredibly valuable as would a working knowledge of Navision.

What's on Offer

A highly competitive salary and package to include a bonus and car allowance.
