Contract Type
Full Time
My client is a leading UK manufacturer of innovative clay and concrete building products and one of the largest building materials businesses quoted on the London Stock Exchange.

Due to a recent merger of their brands, a Divisional Finance Lead position has been created. It is the most senior finance appointment within the division (£100m turnover) and the appointee will also be a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

You will be responsible for the day to day financial activity of the Division, including preparation of consolidated month end accounts, variance analysis and financial forecasting. Candidates will have a strong track record in Financial Controller positions and will be experienced in business partnering - offering commercial insight, advice on cost-saving activities, market intelligence, pricing strategies, driving market share, profitability and efficiency.

You will be managing a small team, each with their own teams and will be responsible for mentoring, developing individuals and driving improvements in the performance of the division's finance department.

This is an influential role which requires a number of key things: gravitas, business partnering, stakeholder management, financial acumen with qualified accountancy background (ACA/CIMA) and ideally an understanding of multi-site engineering or manufacturing. You will have a minimum of 10 years in a Senior management accounting role, potentially, with the ambition to move into a general management position within five years.
