Contract Type
Full Time
Reed Finance have been engaged by world leading supplier in the provision of specialist solutions to recruit a Financial Controller.

The Group is listed on the NYSE and has been successfully trading in the UK for the past 35 years. Their recent growth nationwide has been largely through acquisition, and they have a five year plan to double in size.

The role of Financial Controller is based in their UK Head Office, on the outskirts of Cambridge.

Supporting the Finance Director, the primary function of the post is to manage the day to day accounting needs of the UK business, and the Group reporting to the Head Office in the US.

Tasks will involve –

? Managing a team of 10 finance staff, including the remote management of staff in regional offices
? Liaising with business heads across the group, to ensure the timely receipt of information required
? Monthly management account reporting to the US and confirm all appropriate documentation provided
? Working with regional Operations Managers to ensure all clients are appropriately set up on the company’s UK Credit Policy, reviewing when appropriate.
? Managing the UK audit process for the Group.
? Assisting the Finance Director as and when required

Given that over half the finance team are based in regional offices, there will be a small element of travel (no more than one full day on site), on a monthly basis. This will also enable you to develop an efficient working relationship with the local Site Manager.

We invite those who hold an accountancy qualification such as ACA, ACCA or ACMA (or equivalent), who have proven success with managing teams and building efficient relationships with non-finance staff, together with some knowledge of Sarbanes Oxley to apply.

Exposure to US GAAP and SAP would be a huge advantage and but is not essential.

On a personal level you will be flexible in your thinking, happy to undertake tasks outside your remit if so required, be persuasive but diplomatic in your approach.
