Job Description


I am recruiting a brand new opportunity for a family owned business in the Cheshire area based within the Food Manufacturing sector.

This a Finance Manager / Controller position, reporting directly to the Finance Director, managing a team of 4.

The business is family owned, recently acquired, and so the calibre of candidate needs to be able to work through the integration of family owned through to a corporate/global entity. Similar experiences would prove worthwhile.


The four main areas of the role will be:

* Financial controlling
* Group reporting
* Budget and forecasting
* Integration and change management

You will oversee and manage the production of financial reporting (incl. management and group reporting), ensuring that the internal control environment within the Finance function is robust and in line with Group practises and oversee the day-to-day management of Finance function, providing direction and development to the rest of the team.

There will also be the opportunity to broaden your exposure and build their Commercial Finance and Operational Finance divisions.


This is an ideal opportunity for someone who has the skill/experience to hit the ground running and the gravitas to engage people on the transitional journey, but also has the desire to continue to progress their career within the Group over time.

* Experience either working within a subsidiary of a Group company or auditing Group subsidiary companies, with a strong understanding of Group reporting procedures would be important.
* Training within the audit function of a reputable accountancy practice is desired but not essential
* Experience of the FMCG/Food Manufacturing sector is desired
* Understanding of Commercial, Manufacturing and Costing processes.
