If working within a small, friendly, experienced and highly passionate team motivates your career search, you’d do well to read on. Trial Balance Consulting are delighted to have been engaged by a highly successful and fast-growing online retail and B2B business – a leader in the wildlife, ecology and conservation sector – which seeks to recruit an experienced Finance Manager. This is a full time, permanent position to be based at the company’s offices in Totnes. 

This is a pivotal role within the business where, working closely with the business directors, the successful candidate will play a key part in developing and maintaining the health of the company’s finance function. It’s a broad and rewarding role which will call for strong commercial aptitude and excellent management reporting. Key responsibilities to include:

Our client is completely open minded where qualification status is concerned and welcomes applicants either part/fully ACA/ACCA/CIMA or those who consider themselves to be qualified by experience/AAT. Previous experienced gained with EU trading businesses/multi-currency would probably be advantageous, but by no means a prerequisite. The successful candidate should have experience of working with modern accounting platforms (ideally Oracle NetSuite), and have good MS Excel competency. The role works with a motivated and professional team and the Finance Manager will be a prominent member of the business so excellent team-working and communications skills essential.
