New Investment Finance Manager

Are you bored of the same old routine? Would you like to change that, and embark upon a new challenge - that will see you setting up a new division for an international retailer in central Birmingham?

The organisation have recently been acquired by a Chinese investment group with an aim of improving profitability within their current retail operation, in addition to developing a new property arm. The new property arms initial focus will be redeveloping their existing sites, with the future objective of developing new properties in the future. The Investment Finance Manager position will be the first within the new business unit and will offer you the opportunity to influence all decision making, in addition to guiding the future direction of the business with a reporting line directly to the CFO.

As a qualified Accountant you will have gained experience that will enable you to confidently introduce new processes, influence the leadership team and produce management accounts with limited guidance.

Whilst this role will be extremely rewarding and high profile but equally as challenging. Therefore, this role will be well suited to you if you are happy working in a fast paced, transactional environment and are willing to "get your hands dirty!", as in addition to the strategic element, you will also be ensuring that all invoices are authorised, preparing CIS returns, reconciling the balance sheet and preparing management accounts.

A significant part of your role will be evaluating the organisations new investments and subsequently supporting the planning process, to determine whether the plans suggested are worth funding and are financially viable. Once the evaluation process is complete, you will ensure that vital information is reported to the Hong Kong based leadership team. The ability to influence and challenge senior stake holders will therefore be essential for this role.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a qualified Accountant to drive forward the business strategically and add value - through the ability to take ownership of, and develop a new business unit, that is in its infancy. As a consequence, your role will grow alongside the business unit, which will see you able to recruit your own team who will be able to take over the initial transactional elements of the role; enabling you to solely focus on business partnering and investment appraisals over time.
