• Are you ambitious and ready undertake the next obvious steps in your personal career development?
• Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding strategic leadership position for a successful, growing and entrepreneurial SME?
• Are you a confident communicator with the ability to influence, persuade and business partner at Board level?

If so, we have a uniquely outstanding, career enhancing opportunity for you. My client, a successful niche and innovative SME within the distribution sector, is currently seeking to appoint an ambitious candidate to their senior leadership team. You will be recruited into the position of Head of Finance and Operations. However, the owners are recruiting you for your potential to ultimately progress to an even bigger role - Managing Director. With an established customer base, consistently strong financial performance and a highly capable team, my client is offering this superb opportunity for an ACA/ACCA/CIMA Qualified Accountant to join their operation in Cheshire.

Possessing a high quality threshold, the Board are seeking to appoint a driven, commercial, qualified Finance professional who will act as a strategic partner. This is not a technical accounting role. Reporting directly to the Managing Director, you will have overall responsibility for all aspects of business administration including Finance, HR, Logistics, Supply Chain, Customer Service and ICT. You will manage the staff within these functions and oversee the service suppliers and functions such as banking, accountancy, tax, audit and legal. You will contribute to company planning, strategy and policy making. You will analyse the monthly management accounts and use that information to drive decision making.

You must be a confident, pro-active communicator who can bring energy, intelligence and an ability to influence. You may have to drive change. You will be supporting a Board with a 5 year plan to treble turnover and headcount and be confident in delivering against measurables including cost centre management, business partnering and staff management. As well as premium training and qualification, you will be degree educated. You will have demonstrable experience within a commercial environment and now be ready to offer real strategic value to a business. My client believes that this could be a superb opportunity for an ambitious candidate to gain their first Head of Finance and Operations appointment, and use the experience to facilitate their development to an MD/CEO position. My client will offer continued support as this candidate develops their capabilities. Equally, my client will consider applicants who already fulfil a similar role but are seeking a new challenge.

The culture is modern, engaging, passionate and creative.

You will bring drive and ambition to maximise the commercial and strategic growth of the business. In turn you will have a fantastic opportunity to benefit from the rewards and experience of contributing to a successful, specialist business working with some highly successful entrepreneurs. You will have the platform to really forge your reputation and have the opportunity to be rewarded and remunerated on your success. My client is offering a competitive base salary, bonus scheme, formal training, private healthcare and attractive annual leave entitlement. However, it is the potential that this opportunity offers that we feel will be most attractive.

Interested in being considered for this excellent opportunity? Apply without delay.
