Financial Controller


North Bristol  CCR 1163

This is a challenging and potentially rewarding role which is not for the faint hearted but more for the entrepreneurially minded. The business has just emerged from administration with its Bluechip customer base intact and a refreshed management team. Previously family owned it has just been joined by a talented MD who believes the business has great potential, enough to leave a secure and well paid job within a substantial plc.

Working very closely with the MD and supported by an assistant (yet to be appointed) the challenges are many and yet provide an excellent opportunity to not only establish the finance function from the ground up but also be part of a business with growth potential. Currently operating on Quickbooks there will be an urgent need to upgrade to Sage. Previously financial visibility was lacking within the business. You will establish this rapidly to produce meaningful management accounts for sound business decision making. There is also the need for very tight cash management and control in all areas and you will be responsible for this in the critical phase of re-establishing the business. This will be in addition to the usual budgeting, forecasting, monthly and annual routines.

The role is ideally suited but not exclusive to a commercially capable, Qualified By Experience accountant from an SME and who is currently out of work. To succeed you should be a robust individual capable of withstanding the demands and pressures of resurrecting a business from administration. Sound experience of cash control and cashflow management is essential.
