We have been tasked with identifying a Finance Director for the UK&I business who can play a pivotal position and act as a strategic driving force behind and all-encompassing period of change. We need to find someone who is brave, confident in their ability and natural inquisitive. People and partnering will be centric to everything you do, challenging the status quo and identifying improvements across the current ways of working. You will be mandated with building and mentoring a team of future finance leaders who can engage with the wider business to provide best-in-class insight to accelerate growth.
Working with an incredibly passionate and forward-thinking MD, you will drive responsibility and accountability across business unit, ensuring the business reaches its strategic goals with laser focus. This role requires a generalist, who is comfortable with ambiguity and can cut through the noise, navigating uncertainty through self-belief and/or demonstrable experience. Working in a matrix environment, you will have strong influencing skills and be able to challenge effectively, providing direct and impactful feedback to the wider business.
You will be a fully qualified accountant (ACA/ACMA equivalent) who understands consumer industries - how they operate and what the key drivers are. You will have an "anything is possible" mind set and have demonstrable experience of leading strategic change. The UK&I business is sizeable and you will need to have held a Finance Director position before (£500m+ Revenue), where you have experience of sitting on a Leadership Team/ Reporting into a GM/MD. There are tremendous prospects for growth within this role and future opportunities within the wider business for someone with talent... is this you?
