Working alongside the Managing Director, this is a fantastic opportunity to reintegrate the royalties function back into finance with it having been previously outsourced.

The ideally candidate will have taken ownership of royalties roles previously, with an understanding of what improvements processes and controls can be implemented to ensure the function performs smoothly.

This is an on-going interim position which could potentially lead to longer term opportunities in the future. My client will also consider employing the right candidate for the role on a part time basis.

  • Liaising and consulting the possibility of implementing an in-house royalty software programme.
  • Understand what improvements, processes and controls can be implemented to ensure the Royalties function performs smoothly.
  • Clear a backlog and be on top of the royalties statements.

About you
