Sellick Partnership is working exclusively with a very successful and instantly recognisable wholesale / retail business based in Scunthorpe, to recruit a permanent Finance Manager.
The business has outperformed their competitors over the past few years and will continue to do so, even in this current climate, by driving their strategic plan, delivering further improvements and changes that will make a real impact on the whole business.
As part of the finance control team that provides financial oversight, transactional process delivery and financial reporting for the business, you're main area of focus will be the integrity of margin reporting. This is a key risk area and therefore requires an experienced Accountant who can ensure the business's performance is reported accurately and on time when financial records are held across multiple systems where only limited integration exists.
The role requires an individual with a strong financial control background who is able to ensure control procedures are correctly applied and adhered to by the business. In addition, the role will require the provision of financial analysis and insight to support the Finance Business Partners, stakeholders and wider management team in decision making.
Responsibilities also include the implementation of control improvements, identification and delivery of efficiencies within the finance function and the involvement in budgeting and forecasting.
The successful applicant will be a technically strong qualified Accountant (ACA, ACCA or ICAS) ideally from a top10 firm coupled with experience in a large wholesale, retail, multisite, leisure or FMCG business.
The role requires an ambitious and proactive individual who enjoys applying a strong controllership focus, with the ability to build robust and productive relationships, providing support and challenge across all functions and liaising with senior management. It would be ideal if you have exposure of margin reporting, supplier income, stock and/or pricing,
This is a complex business and will need someone who is resilient and comfortable challenging and engaging internal business partners. Therefore, you will have to show experience of building and managing meaningful relationships with lots of different stakeholders at all levels, as you will be challenging the status quo.
If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the stimulus of this commercial finance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
If you would like to apply for this role or would like to find out more, please apply online or contact Jonathan Moss at Sellick Partnership on 0161 834 1642.
