This diverse group of companies is about to embark on a period of change and investment which will coincide with the FD taking on a more operational role in the business. As a result of this they are keen to strengthen the accounts department by appointing a Financial Controller to oversee the day to day management of the finance function.

There is an experienced team already in place so this opportunity comes with flexibility to work on a reduced hours or full-time basis. The position would be great for someone experienced who is looking to enjoy a better work/life balance or an ambitious Management Accountant / Finance Manager looking to step up. This role will have the following responsibilities:

• Producing and presenting the monthly management accounts
• Variance analysis and commentary
• Cost centre analysis and reporting
• Preparation of company budgets
• Reporting and management of cashflow, including detailed forecasting
• Analysis and reporting on performance
• Preparation of annual stat accounts and audit liaison
• Overseeing payroll and VAT submissions
• Assisting with system implementations and project work
• Developing controls and improved processes

The ideal candidate for this role would have the passion and drive to be part of a high quality finance function in a profitable business. The position will require the ability to manipulate and analyse large amounts of data so good Excel skills will be useful alongside the ability to use an ERP system. You will receive plenty of support from an experienced FD but previous experience of developing and managing a small finance team would be very useful.
