Company Accountant



Ref DS6949

We‘re at interview stage but it‘s not too late. Suitably experienced candidates invited to apply ASAP.

Company Accountant - Callington - £NEG DOE

Feeling confident? Good, you’ll need to be. But the rewards are big. In fact, everything about this job is big. Big in terms of scope, big in terms of challenge, and big in terms of future. It also works for one of Cornwall’s most successful services businesses. A major employer in East Cornwall who doesn’t appear to be taking things steady. You guessed it, big expansion is imminent, as is company change. 

This obviously isn’t a run of the mill Company Accountant opportunity. You’ll be overseeing the company finances with complete autonomy. You’ll have several direct reports and work extremely closely with the senior management team, particularly the Managing Director who is frequently based overseas.  

The technical specification for this role is very comprehensive. So much so that we’ll save on the full details for now but will of course very happily share with potentially suitable candidates. 

So, who fits this profile? A qualified, accomplished, confident and ambitious finance leader with at least three years’ experience operating in a number one capacity. In an ideal world, you’ll have a services/logistics background supervising a small team, though we do recognise that Cornwall doesn’t necessarily breed candidates with this exposure, so we’ll keep an open mind on that. You’ll definitely need to fully appreciate and understand complex analytical forecasting, budgeting, and reporting. Needless to say, a qualified accountant with the necessary PQE. 

It’s definitely a role for a commercially driven leader who enjoys supporting business growth and change; a lot of existing processes are likely to change under the successful candidate’s leadership. Quite a challenge, but with tangible benefits: working with a well-established, respected and secure Cornish employer where future opportunity to progress appears highly likely.  

We’re already in touch with some interesting candidates so we’re off to a good start. However, this is the sort of opportunity that brings people out of the woodwork. If you think we need to be talking to you about this, please get in touch with Dan Saunder quoting reference DS6949. It goes without saying that every enquiry will receive a response and will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
