Finance Manager - Penzance area - £30-35,000
Every now and again we’re tasked with sourcing a candidate for a particularly unique opportunity. We love those assignments; they’re a break from the norm and are always a big hit with certain candidates. This is one of those assignments. In fact, this is a really, really unique opportunity!
We’ve been exclusively assigned by one of the most recognisable landmarks in Cornwall. Based close to Penzance, every year they attract thousands of visitors both locally and internationally. Their popularity has helped them build a business that now turns over in excess of £5M per annum, increasing year on year.
As part of their growth plans, they’ve tasked us with sourcing an experienced Finance Manager to join their team. Just like the organisation itself, this is a truly unique role where the successful candidate will have the ability to really put their stamp on the post. It reports into a central finance team based outside of Cornwall, which means it carries with it a great degree of local autonomy.
From a technical point of view, the role is different to your average accountancy opportunity. The business runs on an outdated software platform which is in desperate need of a complete overhaul. This project represents a great opportunity for the successful candidate to liaise with central finance in deciding on the best path forwards. A key responsibility will be the project management, implementation and migration to a modern finance platform to ensure that processes are fluid and free from duplication. As a retail focussed business, the role will also entail strong technical experience in cash controls/management, EPOS administration, budgetary controls, payroll, credit control, and the supply of management information to the central finance team.
We’re looking for an experienced candidate, either part/fully professionally qualified or with suitable working experience in a similar role. A strong aptitude for all things IT orientated, including excellent MS Excel experience is essential. Knowledge or experience of systems migration and implementation will be a very strong advantage here.
We’ve a detailed role specification which covers all of the technical requirements of the role, but if you’re liking the sound of what you’ve read so far and think that you’d relish a very, very different opportunity, you should apply now. This isn’t an ordinary accounting role in a corporate office and the right candidate will flourish in this position.
