Commercial Finance Manager, LancasterJob description:
This dynamic group of companies is seeking a Commercial Finance Manager to lead the finance team and provide reporting and analysis to support decision making. The business is going through a period of re-modelling at the moment and they have recently made some acquisitions which need integrating and streamlining so there is plenty of work to do. Central to the role will be the need to identify profitable revenue streams, work with the sales and operational staff to improve quotations and pricing whilst also improving efficiency and driving out cost. My client is looking for an individual who can challenge convention and has the credibility and enthusiasm to initiate change and communicate well with non- finance staff. Key duties for this role include:
- Preparation of MI and KPI’s for each division
- Providing reporting and analysis for the board and SMT
- Managing the month end process
- Preparing detailed cashflows and forecasts
- Sales and profitability analysis
- Project costing and WIP analysis
The role offers excellent prospects and is viewed as the eventual successor to the Finance Director who is likely to reduce in hours once this position is up and running. The Finance Manager will therefore have plenty of exposure to the CEO and other board members as the business looks to consolidate and continue to grow. Suitable applicants for this role must be CIMA /ACCA /ACA qualified, ideally with experience from a service or project led business although drive and a commercial attitude are the most important factors.
