Reporting directly to the CFO, the Financial Controller will be responsible for a medium sized finance team with a mixture of Qualified, Part Qualified and Transactional Staff, so a passion for developing your team is a must.
The business is currently going through rapid change, which will present many challenges in the next 12 months.

• Providing appropriately analysed financial information.
• Stakeholder management.
• Developing a new suite of KPIs (and lead indicators) to better monitor business performance.
• Transaction activity (including M&A) is expected, exposing the Financial Controller to a whole variety of experiences beyond the day to day routines.
This role will require a lot of hard work, commitment and determination, but the right person will be rewarded accordingly. Benefits include; matched pension scheme of up to 5%, a generous bonus scheme, private health cover, 25 days holiday and the potential of an equity share for the right candidate.
