Due to the continued success of the business, they are looking to upscale the role with a forward looking, strategic Head of Finance. A family run business you will have the support of the wider senior management team with the opportunity to add value to the business and develop your individual skillset.

Working closely with the Managing Director and the Operational Director, you will be instrumental in pricing and strategic decisions whilst managing a sizeable finance team. Having developed a controlled finance system, they are looking for a qualified accountant to upscale and improve current process and decrease the month end timings.

Liaising with multiple stakeholders including external businesses, you will have full control of the finance function with the opportunity to upscale and develop the team where needed. You will not be afraid to get involved with the day to day finance function from a transactional level and will constantly look to make improvements in this.

You will be process driven with the ambition to improve existing structures and upscale the finance function to match that of the strategic vision. Ideally you will have experience within the following sectors: FMCG, warehousing, distribution, supply chain or logistics. They are ultimately looking for someone who can take the step up in the future to CFO and therefore need some who is strong across the board with good people skills.
