Full Time
Market-leading £60m turnover business (PE Backed) have a newly created opportunity for a commercially astute recently-qualified ACCA / CIMA / ACA qualified Finance Manager.

You will enjoy a highly involved, varied and challenging role within a continuous improvement SME environment.

This is an opportunity for someone to really add value through diligent, proactive and commercially focused business partnering. You will support the Group FC, operational heads and managers to really understand the numbers, the budgets and the subsidiary businesses performance. Ultimately you will help drive profitability, protect margin and ensure the business operates as effectively as possible.

You will need a firm baseline of management accounting / reporting skills and ideally have worked within a fast paced environment.

You will need to confidently demonstrate business acumen and an ability to translate financial information / reporting into meaningful headline messages for operational teams. This is a very hands on role - you must be someone able to dig into the detail and deliver credible and timely monthly packs (P&L, balance sheet and forecast).

You must have an ability to lead and motivate a small team and be someone who can naturally encourage best practice.

This is a high growth, equity supported group looking for someone ambitious and driven. This is a visible, involved and broad role where you will have chance to make a real difference (with support from an aspiration Group FC at a relatively early stage of his own career).

You will enjoy getting under the skin of the business locally and certainly not be sidelined in a head office accounting environment. This has all of the positives of an agile SME coupled with the security, career scope and profile of PE exposure.

You will need:

A completed qualification (CIMA / ACA / ACCA).

A strong track record of success - able to demonstrable ability to work within a fast paced environment.

Excellent communication skills and a track record of suggesting and influencing positive change.

An ability to 'bring the numbers to life' and enhance the commercial reporting.

An ability to reassure the FC that they will receive reliable and insightful management accounts to deadline without issue.

Keenness to progress and develop - this is a role for an ambitious character.
