We have been engaged to source an experienced Financial Controller to perform in this newly created role that reports to a remote Finance Director and works very closely with the senior management team.
This is a senior level role within the business and one of pivotal responsibility. The company has several sites located in the southwest and the successful candidate will take a lead role in developing financial controls across each to ensure strong accounting benefit and assist in the continued growth of the business. The role is as much finance orientated as it is commercially driven and this will be a broad and interesting opportunity that will span both technical and strategic; a great opportunity for an ambitious and motivated individual. Key responsibilities of the role to include:
- Working closely with FD and SMT in devising growth strategies using business planning, forecasting and budget preparations
- Management reporting with full commentary
- Preparation of annual accounts and working with external auditors. Ensuring compliance on all matters relating to VAT, PAYE and tax reporting
- Identify cost saving initiatives
- Supporting and developing a small but growing finance team and recruiting additional team members
We’re looking for an experienced Financial Controller, either qualified by experience or professionally qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA. Strong IT skills (particularly Sage) and a sound understanding of all elements of the financial lifecycle for a medium sized business will be essential, as will the ability to lead and develop a small team. Experience in the hospitality sector would be great, but we also welcome applications from commercially astute individuals with a background in retail or consumer services. Our client will conduct a shortlist equally balanced on technical experience, commercial exposure and a strong aptitude to develop in a senior role. The role will be particularly well suited to a “switched on”, dynamic individual who will use initiative to design, implement and develop system improvements to streamline and improve financial controls.
The role offers exceptional career development prospects with a modern and growing business, as well as a substantial package of site benefits and discounts. For further details and to apply for this interesting opportunity, please contact Dan Saunders ASAP quoting reference DS7321.
