Finance Manager - Boutique SME
Barribal Associates are delighted to be working with this new client, an enormously successful entrepreneur who has forged an enviable reputation in the beauty sector. The business has flourished and grown and provides beauty services through flagship salons, concession operations in the major departments stores and a unique and growing line of products.
A long standing colleague of ours has taken a Consultancy Finance Directorship with the business and has identified the urgent requirement for a talented, commercially astute and ambitious Financial Controller. You will take an immediate and integral role within the business, both through the improvement and implementation of financial reporting and controls, but also in the commercialisation of the finance function and its impact on the operational business itself. You will work closely with the founder CEO in developing a thorough budget and forecasting schedule, deep dive analysis of performance and profitability and crucially in the commerciality of new opportunities; viability reports, forecasts and planning. Your remit will include the supervision and development of an accounts assistant, who currently takes responsibility for all transactional accounting for the business.
You will be a fully qualified accountant, with a proven track record of working within a small team environment in an autonomous and independent position. You will be used to taking the initiative and be confident in not only making procedural improvements, but also in delivering commercial advice and guidance to the operational business. Alternatively, you may be considering your first step into industry from qualifying in the profession and be looking for a mentor who will offer the career development you seek. What is a prerequisite however, is your attitude and aptitude in taking a proactive and autonomous approach to your work and the desire to have a tangible impact on the business itself.
Barribal Associates and the organisations it represents are fully committed to equal opportunities and encourage applications from any age, disability, gender, marital status, race, nationality, religion or sexual orientation.
