An unusual all-round role has arisen for an experienced Head of Finance to manage the finances of a self-contained business unit which is part of a wider healthcare group.

This key role will oversee the day-to-day financial management and control of the company, as well as providing management information on a broad range of issues and supporting development of the strategic plan. Working closely with stakeholders, you will ensure that robust processes and controls exist to improve efficiency, manage financial risk, provide accurate and timely reporting, and drive the development of improved systems and processes to drive the business forward. The aim of the contract will be to cover the post temporarily, then hand over the role to a permanent incumbent once they have been recruited.

You should be fully qualified accountant or equivalent, with an extensive background in financial management, control and forecasting. All round financial awareness, demonstrated by experience of financial stewardship of a small to medium sized business, perhaps within a larger group, would be very helpful. Exposure to Sage accounting and the healthcare industry would also be beneficial. Owing to the autonomous nature of the role a can-do attitude and proactive approach to anticipating and solving problems would be ideal - and a key part of this will be to hold excellent communication skills along with the ability to rapidly form strong working relationships.

This is a great chance to take ownership of the role and have a direct impact on the success of a new subsidiary. For the right person, it should prove to be a satisfying challenge, the likes of which do not occur frequently.
