The Opportunity

Highly innovative, market-leading and award-winning group (manufacturing sector) have an interesting opportunity for a proactive Interim finance professional to join them over the next 12 months.

As Senior Management Accountant you will enjoy a pivotal, business-facing project (on a fixed term contact for the next 12 months).

You will enjoy:

As Senior Management Accountant you will be in a visible role within this fast-paced, growth manufacturing environment. You will be supported by an approachable Head of Finance and work within a collaborative and talented finance team. The business is amid a period of positive change and growth and you will really have chance to make a difference.

  • A manufacturing environment (ideally).
  • Using confident communication skills to provide credible and positive business partnering.
  • Providing insight and commentary around variances / trends (labour and material variances, costings, overheads, profits and margin streams).
  • Being able to support others to adopt best practice and optimise efficiency.
  • Being able to 'get behind the numbers' and bring them to life through working closely with colleagues in operational and commercial areas.
  • A hands-on and proactive approach to problem solving.

The business is ideally seeking a measured and experienced qualified finance professional - someone able to hit the ground running and commit to the full assignment (through to Q4 2020).
