Job description:

This organisation provides vital services to the community and currently requires an experienced Financial Controller / Head of Finance / Finance Director level candidate to support them on a six month contract. There is an immediate start available for the right candidate but since the previous incumbent has already finished applicants must be comfortable being dropped in at the deep end. Due to the current pandemic the role will involve a lot of re-budgeting and reforecasting, scenario planning and cash management, in addition to preparing for the annual audit in August. The position will work closely with the CEO and trustees and also involve mentoring and developing a Management Accountant who is planned to take on the role after the interim finishes.

The position will involve taking responsibility for the groups finances and administration whilst also contributing to strategic planning and working as part of a senior management team. This will involve budget control, banking and investments, cash flow management and developing financial systems to record income and expenditure. Due to the nature of the organisation there is a lot of complexity around income streams and compliance to adhere to so it is vital that the successful candidate has a calm and methodical approach along with solid experience of financial management and monthly reporting.

If necessary they can offer some degree of flexibility for the right candidate so if you are interested please apply now for immediate consideration.

I would like to use an opportunity to thank for the support that both Tammy and Sarah gave to me throughout the whole interviewing process. They both made me feel confident in myself to go to the interview as tbh if it wasn’t for them I would have struggled a lot more during the whole process ( never been to one before). Tammy Smith was absolutely amazing !!!!!She made me feel comfortable, provided me with all information I needed to succeed!She is also very warm, super friendly and... approachable, very reliable and informative. Honestly, I cannot thank them enough as they are just perfect career match makers!!!!!AFR Consulting/ Tammy Smith - you are a life changer!!!!Thank you very much!!!!read more

Really impressed with AFR Consulting and their speedy effort to find me suitable employment. Tammy and Sarah really had my best interests at heart and the whole experience was much more of personal service than a business transaction as found at other recruitment agencies. I would certainly be using them in the future after trusting them to find me the perfect job.
