We are proud to be working with an extremely interesting Group of companies based in south Leeds who are looking to significantly grow through future acquisitions.

The current Financial Controller has created a new opportunity for a Senior Group Management Accountant to join his growing and highly dynamic finance team to compliment his skill-set. This role has been created due to the future business plans, where the FC will be taking on extra responsibility and progressing within the company.

Therefore this is a brilliant opportunity for a Management Accountant to quickly step into a Financial Controller position within the next 12 months.

This will be a highly varied role which you will really be able to make your own. You will be expected to dig into the detail and this will certainly be a very challenging role as the business goes through some changes, however it will be an excellent opportunity for someone looking to prove themselves for an FC position.

You day to day role will look like the following, however it is a fluid position which is likely to grow and change quickly:-

-Produce and consolidate the group management accounts, providing a detailed commentary

-Streamline all current processes across the 7 businesses to bring things more closely aligned

-Mentor the management accounts team to eventually take over as their line manager

-Commercial analysis looking at their current competitors and how they can improve their profitability

-Business partnering with marketing and sales departments across the company to help improve company performance

-Ownership of financial reporting to executive and Group, including consolidated P&L, Balance Sheet & Cash flow, variance analysis and management of the risk

-Supporting the FC with potential acquisitions in the future

-Preparing budgets and forecasts

This is a brand new role so these responsibilities are the bare bones of the position so a lot more challenging projects will be thrown in along the way!

This really is a rare and exciting opportunity with a genuine route to FC. If you are an ambitious and qualified accountant with a strong personality and a drive to succeed and progress, then please get in touch with Lucy Campbell for further information.
