Financial Controller

c£45,000 + Benefits

Chippenham  CCR  1160

This is an excellent opportunity to join an established, profitable and growing SME in an exciting, newly created, and varied role. The company provides high end specialist services in a growing niche market. The opportunity would suit a career minded, high calibre qualified account. You will have a strong preference for SMEs and a strong desire to make an impact on a business in your first managerial role. It is anticipated that, with planned organic growth, the role will evolve toward more commercial and strategic responsibilities.

Working closely with a dynamic and entrepreneurial MD, and off site Finance Director, overall responsibility of the Financial Controller will be to provide strong financial support to the business and to assist with controlled growth. Specifically, you will be expected to: – recruit, train and develop a small department; oversee a systems implementation; provide detailed management information including variance analysis and KPIs; provide robust budgets, forecasts and cashflow management; meet all statutory requirements and ensure tight financial controls.

You will be a commercially aware ACA, CIMA, or ACCA who possess strong interpersonal and analytical skills combined with an inquisitive nature, a desire to make improvements and the ability to influence business decision making. The ability to work independently, as part of a team, to lead, and to inspire colleagues is essential. You should be able to grasp and deal with issues quickly and change perspectives from detail to the “bigger picture” equally quickly. Flexibility is important including being “hands on” as and when required. Both the owner and MD of the business have an “open” management style, encourage an entrepreneurial outlook and are prepared to reward results.
