Are you an ambitious Accountant who wants a finance job that could lead to an FD role? Keen to work in a growing, acquisitive business? Do you have a passion for Engineering or Manufacturing? If you do, then we need to have a chat.
Financial Controller Nottingham £40,000 - £45,000
This business is a real success story. They have achieved significant growth over their 30 year existence and now operate in two continents, with a third on the way. They have grown to a £25m t/o with 12 of that coming in the last 2 years.
They have acquired new UK premises and are set to double their factory footprint in the UK, whilst also expanding into the Americas. More than this, they have a strong client base and healthy margins in their business.
So whats driven this success?
Ultimately, a driven and ambitious leadership team. They also like to empower their people. The current leadership team are in their mid to late 30's and all share a vision and a goal to grow.
In order to maximise that potential, they need a finance leader. (There isn't an accountant in the business currently!) Someone who can embed processes, design and implement the management reporting, conduct due diligence on acquisitions and help to define and drive the growth strategy, with finance information as the lynch pin of the decision making process.
What do you need?
You would ideally be a professional accountant or studying towards a qualification. More importantly though, you'll be someone who wants to grow their career. Someone who is excited about being in a leadership team and someone who isn't afraid to muck in, get the job done and drive success.
You'll have worked in manufacturing before and you'll love talking to the guys on the shop floor. Helping them to grow their margin or to reduce their cost. You'll also get a thrill from opening new business locations, or looking at acquisitions.
Ultimately, you'll want to prove to the Managing Director that you are capable of becoming his FD of the future. The growth plans are realistic, but they will require hard work.
If this sounds like you and you'd like to know more. Get in touch. I'm on 0115 947 0200 or send me your current CV and salary expectations.
I look forward to speaking to you soon.
