Do you want to be the first ever Financial Controller for a growing SME? Do you want the chance to implement new systems and processes and create management accounts from scratch?

Based in Central Leicester, our client have seen significant year on year growth since they set up five years ago. They are now in a position to recruit an experienced Financial Controller on a part time basis (20-25 hours per week).

You'll support with the implementation of a new system (likely to be Sage 50), create a new management accounting process and find a way to turn huge amounts of data in to useful insight.

The business doesn't have your typical 'glamorous office' or 'state of the art facilities' but they have seen impressive growth and are clearly very good at what they do.
