Eden Scott's client, a hugely successful utilities company, based in the central belt are seeking a group finance controller for an interim role (with a strong chance of becoming permanent). The role holder will report into the finance director and will be accountable for the running of the finance function. The initial period of the post is scheduled to be for 3-6 months, however this could be extended or made permanent sooner. Responsibilities The key purpose of this role is to manage the accounts team whilst assisting the organisation in some change management. You will be line managing a small number of accountants, who subsequently have a reporting line into them. Your main aim will be to act as the senor finance figurehead and advise the director on the day to day running of the function. You will however be working in an environment where you can be expected to "roll your sleeves up" and get involved with all aspects of the team from invoicing to facing off to external stakeholders. Requirements Our client has been fairly specific as to what their criteria are. We are seeking a CA/ACA/ACCA qualified accountant with a minimum of 5 years PQE. The organisation require a good motivator, man manager who can mentor the team and develop untapped employee potential. The culture of the department is such that confidence, good communication skills and a hands on approach will be highly desirable. Industry background wise we have been advised to seek candidates with either a utilities, Oil, Joint Venture or Energy industry experience. Candidates will need to be available immediately or at most 1 weeks-notice as the client is seeking a rapid turnaround.
