Our client is a well- known, instantly recognisable brand in the Cambridgeshire region, a Top 100 business that has seen tremendous growth over the past year.

The business is growing and is on track to achieve their turnover target of £230m this year. In reaction to this they are updating their processes and teams and part of their strategy to continue with the development around there is to recruit an experienced, commercial and qualified Accountant and Manager to head up their Management Accounts team.

This is a crucial post, as the business needs a strong bridge between the business and finance.

On a personal level you will possess excellent problem solving and analytical skills, have the ability to work effectively with and influence management across all areas of the business, be commercially aware and adapt at working with Excel.
