Finance Manager (FC designate)

Posted 7 months ago

Are you looking to join a high-growth SME with ambitious plans laid out for the next five years? If you’re a qualified accountant looking for a Finance Manager role that will progress to Financial Controller within 12 months, with your own career development targets in mind, this could be the dream role for you.

The business in question is still in its relative infancy, having been formed less than five years ago by a band of industry leaders. The company has had significant investment, with a further round currently ongoing. Growth targets are in place for two sister companies that comprise the group, and this role will be a key support pillar in the delivery of those targets. With great offices and an outstanding CFO (with plenty to learn from him), this opportunity would suit an ambitious and driven Finance Manager on the upward curve of their career.

As the Finance Manager, you will be responsible primarily for:

  • Compilation of the monthly management information and financial accounts
  • Supporting the FP&A activities of both businesses within the group
  • Actively leading the finance function, as the CFO steps away from day-to-day and into strategic management
  • Continuing to play a part in recruiting further members to this growing team in the next 12 months
  • Developing a suite of business analysis tools, to coincide with the ongoing implementation of a new reporting system
  • Monthly MI analysis, analysing huge data sets to pump more meaningful information back into the business
  • Business partnering with marketing and sales, as well as the boots on the ground operations workers
  • Investing time into the junior members of the finance team to get them where they need to be
  • Cash flow management and liaison with the bank
  • Acting as a key point of contact for the external auditors
  • Supporting the delivery of the yearly statutory accounts with the Finance Director

To be suitable for this role, the ideal candidate must be:

  • Fully ACA, ACMA or ACCA qualified, ideally with 3-5 years’ PQE
  • An experienced senior accountant or finance manager with a line management history
  • Able to command the respect of the finance team and take charge 
  • A successful business partner to both operations and commercial
  • Experienced within SME environments (<£50m revenues)
  • Able to adapt to continuous change as the business carries on growing
  • Extremely ambitious and constantly looking to progress
