Warning: This job may not appeal to the easily frightened, but if you’ve been hankering for a sizable career challenge and expect to be seriously well rewarded for your efforts, read on!
We’ve recently met with an extremely exciting client who are creating a serious stir in the UK hospitality sector. They’re a fast paced, very rapid growth, incredibly well financed, private equity supported group with current expansion of over 300% per annum!
Having acquired more than half a dozen large scale and highly prestigious operations across the south west and south coast, they continue to expand across the country with several more acquisitions either planned or in active motion.
They’ve tasked us with sourcing several additional staff to complement their existing finance team, one of the most exciting being the Regional Finance Manager. This is a senior level position which reports directly to the Group Finance Director and collates financial data from transactional staff across all sites.
It is important to note that the role will be largely field based with substantial travel across the company’s sites to include overnight stays.
What we’re after: Probably, though not necessarily, a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA). You’ll need to be operating in a position of responsibility; not necessarily in a number one post, but certainly influencing a team that respect you. You’ll be a well-polished accountant with a sound understanding of the full financial lifecycle and strong management reporting skills. The business is very communication focussed and the role that will demand exceptional communication skills; across finance, across other departments, and at senior management level. Good IT skills with an aptitude for cutting edge cloud-based accounting systems will be a distinct advantage.
The task for us is as much about sourcing a sound Finance Manager as it is finding an experienced Commercial Manager/Marketeer. The FD is extremely driven, as are the shareholders and it is crucial that the successful candidate is both career focussed and driven by business growth.
