SF Group are working with a medium sized private equity backed industrial products manufacturing business in Bedfordshire to recruit technically sound and commercially aware Chief Financial Officer.
As right hand to the Chief Executive you will be fundamental in setting and driving the strategy for this already successful organisation and ultimately lead a sale / divestment process for the backers. You will be responsible for all financial, management and statutory reporting.
Relevant candidates for this position will already have operated at CFO / FD level within an industrial products / manufacturing organisation. You will be totally at home in dealing with product costing issues and R&D costs. Your working capital and cash management skills will be highly attuned and you will be very much at home in managing these kind of day to day financial issues.
You will ideally have already worked as CFO in a PE backed / leveraged manufacturing business and led the wholesale exit of this organisation - we will look at candidates who have worked in PE but within unrelated sectors - we would potentially look at manufacturing candidates from a non PE background if the candidate worked for a particularly relevant organisation.
As well as a salary befitting a role at this level you will receive a car allowance, bonus and equity participation.
