My client, a subsidiary company,  is very profitable and currently growing at the rate of 20% year on year. The business model is well tried and tested. Application of this model to a growth area in a niche market is resulting in solid growth of both profit and turnover for the business. Consequently, there is increasing demand being placed on the finance function which has led to the need to recruit for the newly created role of Financial Controller.

This is an ideal first Financial Controller role for a qualified accountant early in their career. You will be mentored and assisted in your professional development by a very talented, experienced and highly qualified Head of Finance. Responsible for leading the finance team in all aspects of its day to day functions and supporting the Head of Finance, you will also be required to manage and support others within the team. In this role you will be exposed to a wide range of finance activities with a great opportunity to make a real difference and have significant interaction with the overseas parent. Specific duties will include: management reporting with analysis and commentary in respect of stock, inventory, suppliers and customers; business and compliance controls involving forecasting, budgeting, control accounts; and support in areas including cash management and banking relationships, systems, ledgers together with various ad hoc duties.

This is an excellent opportunity for a qualified ACA, ACCA CIMA with some supervisory experience, either in industry or working in a medium sized accounting based practice, to gain their first Financial Controllership. You should be a well organised and confident individual with good communication and people skills. You should possess initiative, technical strengths coupled with commercial awareness, and good systems / Excel skills.
