Are you an experienced Financial Controller looking for a new challenge?

Our client is a well-established manufacturing business with ambitious growth plans over the next five years. As a result, they now need a Financial Controller to lead their accounts team to support their current and projected growth.

That's where you come in.

Having worked to a senior level in previous businesses, you'll have gained significant experience managing the financial aspects of medium-long term supply contracts. You'll know that trading conditions can fluctuate during the term of a contract and will have a proactive and problem-solving mindset to mitigate the effects of any unforeseen situations arising.

Your typical duties will include:

  • Weekly and monthly cash flow forecasting

  • Monitoring contract pricing and spending in conjunction with the sales team

  • Managing financial compliance with HMRC submissions

  • Leading the accounting team

  • Producing monthly management accounts and presenting to the board

  • Margin forecasting with the global sales teams

  • Supporting the commercial team in the preparation of tenders

  • Leading supplier negotiations

  • Development of costing models across the business

In addition to your daily tasks, you'll also be able to lead one-off projects such as implementing a cloud-based management control system and developing a KPI reporting suite to identify trends and variances.

Our client expects you will be fully qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA with significant post-qualifying experience working in a financial management role. In addition, experience with international trade would be a major plus point. You'll understand the reporting requirements of an SME and be comfortable communicating your financial analysis to the board. From a managerial perspective, you'll be confident in leading, mentoring, and guiding small teams of accountants.

If this sounds like the opportunity you've been waiting for, click Apply, and we'll be in touch to discuss further.
