Full Time
Finance Director
Up to £100K plus car and bonus

A compelling opportunity to join a vibrant, growing and luxury group of companies as Finance Director. In this high profile role, you will manage the finance team, providing leadership and direction and building on the success the Group has enjoyed to date. The position will be varied and will extend to the likes of IT, HR, Legal and Company Secretarial duties and will appeal to those who enjoy the pace of working in a non-traditional environment.

The culture is open and built on trust and respect; consequently the post-holder will be expected to work with limited input and will thrive in an autonomous environment. Candidates will preferably have experience of working in a fast-paced SME with the variety that is a feature of smaller companies. Experience also of the hospitality, F&B or leisure sectors would be particularly advantageous. 

Responsibilities will include:

- All accounting, audit, statutory reporting, taxation and insurance-related matters
- Supporting the CEO in all commercial decisions by providing strategic direction
- Provision of high quality, timely management information to the Board
- Preparation of robust business plans and appraisal of project viability
- Acting as main point of contact with the bank for reporting and covenant compliance issues
- Ownership of Group IT and Procurement 
- Mentoring, developing and coaching a team of finance staff

Applicants will be qualified (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) ideally with experience in the sectors listed above. You will have demonstrable commercial experience, having worked at a senior level on strategic matters previously and will be a skilled figurehead within the Finance department, capable of reacting to conflicting demands. You will also be an accomplished influencer and relationship-builder with strong communication skills.

This role is commutable from the likes of Oxford, Cheltenham, Birmingham, Gloucester and Worcester and would suit an experienced Finance Director or CFO or indeed someone looking to step up from a Financial Controller or Group Financial Controller position.
