Our client is a fast track, high growth, entrepreneurial business and a trusted partner to the consumer industry. The business pride themselves on exceptional delivery to their customers through core values which include simplicity, innovation and integrity.
The business has experienced positive organic growth throughout 2017 and are set to kick start the next phase of their development in 2018. The business plan for the next 3 years includes a desire to double headcount and continue to drive revenue forward.
The senior management team has identified the need to create a new position for a Financial Controller to lead finance team, working closely with the Finance Director and Head of FP&A.
You will take ownership and responsibility of the company's finance function and will play a vital role in driving the finance team forward. You will take full responsibility for the financial control, cash management, audit management and transactional finance teams to ensure the accurate and efficient running of the department, meeting deadlines, providing relevant information, and delivering innovative solutions.
This is a superb opportunity for a highly motivated candidate to understand all areas of the business and contribute towards maximising business revenue and profitability. The candidate will be responsible for delivering key strategic management information to various stakeholders across the business.
The role requires a forward thinking, proactive individual excited by the prospect of the journey ahead. This is a pivotal, and challenging, role within a forward-thinking business with a high level of autonomy and an unrivalled opportunity to influence future business decisions.
The ideal candidate would be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent), with a strong technical grounding who is able to contribute to the development of the wider business strategy. You will have a focus on accuracy, attention to detail and a hands-on approach to problem solving. Those who have worked within a fast track SME business and have exposure to working within would hold a distinct advantage.
