Change Recruitment
Dunfermline, UK
11 Sep 2019

Contract Type
Full Time

Change Recruitment have been engaged on the above appointment, which sits within a global manufacturing business that feeds in to the energy sector. The role is being recruited initially as a 12mth contract.

Within the role, each project is seen as a mini stand-alone business, and as such, the role holder very much plays the role of Financial Controller for each individual project, where you will be responsible for all accounting matters across the project. Within the role it will be imperative that Finance is able to report accurate profits and control all significant risks on these projects at all times, and it is in these areas that you will hold ultimate responsibility.

Aside from this, core areas of responsibility held within the role:

· Provide accurate estimate at completion (EAC) on each project
· Financial risk management on each project - cashflow, cost provision etc.
· Adding value to individual projects in order to maximise financial performance
· Comply with internal controls and compliance across each project
· Business Partner with a wide range of stakeholders, both internally and externally

In addition, the role holder will be involved with activities such as forecasting and a wide range of commercial activities that are related to each project. In order to be successful in the role, there will be a certain level of robustness required, that will allow you to challenge suppliers and project managers on every area that feeds in to the final delivery and quality of each project.

The role of Project Controller is a particularly interesting one and will be suited to not only those who have held a similar role previously, but also those who are currently operating within a commercial finance / business partnering, customer facing environment. From a qualification perspective, those who are fully qualified (ACCA, CIMA or CA), part-qualified or qualified by experience will all be considered. The key criteria and requirement is to hold the relevant experience and background as laid out above. It is a role that will require the successful individual to be able to really hit the ground running in many respects, and is therefore best suited to those coming from a similar commercial, business partnering, project based background.

This will be a challenging but highly rewarding role. The company themselves have a fantastic reputation both here in the UK and overseas, and operate at the forefront of their sector. If you would like further information on this role, we would ask that you submit a full application / CV at the earliest opportunity.
