We‘re still considering our shortlist. Suitably experienced candidates invited to apply ASAP.

Group Financial Controller - Bodmin - £: Exceptional! 

We don’t have a job specification for this role. Why? Because designing the role spec will probably be one of the first jobs for the successful candidate. It’s a new position, a completely blank canvas, and one that works with one of the fastest growing manufacturing businesses in Cornwall. 

We took our brief from the Managing Director and his enthusiasm and passion for the business is infectious. It’s this attitude that has helped shape one of the most notable and respected businesses operating in this sector. They’ve tasked us to source an impressive Group Financial Controller who will share the MDs vision and help to take the business to another level. And it’s not just the business that’s growing; this role is likely to develop to Finance Director - sooner rather than later. 

The group is made up of a number of highly successful business units, one of which is growing at supersonic speed with the others not far behind. Whilst the company is equally involved in export as it is UK based trade, it’s proven itself to be both pandemic and Brexit proof. So, without a spec, what are we looking for here: 

The Group FC will report to the MD and take an immediate seat at senior management level. The successful candidate will lead a medium sized finance team and work very closely with colleagues based across three business units. This person will have an exceptional relationship with major external stakeholders and high value clients. It’s a role that balances strategic, commercial and day-to-day financial control of a high turnover business. The Group FC will be a known face on the manufacturing floor, educating and leading non-finance staff on costing implications, developing and implementing new ideas to streamline and improve functions across the business including finance. 

For this opportunity, we’re looking for a high calibre, professionally qualified individual - ACA, ACCA, or CIMA. Previous experienced gained in manufacturing and with a sound understand of costings and product logistics is essential, with strong systems and cosildation accounts knowledge highly desirable. Strong people management skills, the ability to communicate effectively across multiple departments and external stakeholders will be requisite. Most importantly, we’re searching for a super-dynamic, forward thinker with a problem-solving attitude: Somebody that wants to make things better, that wants to see things grow, and somebody that wants to develop a long-term career with a highly motivated SMT. 

Curious? We hope so. For further details and to apply to this interesting proposition, please contact Dan Saunders quoting reference DS8461
