Are you a driven and ambitious recently qualified finance professional seeking a new role in a high-growth consultancy? Do you want to work for a creative agency whose work truly makes a difference in making the world a better place? Do you want to gain high-level board exposure with responsibility for being the expert on commerciality within the organisation?

I am partnering with an exciting high-growth consultancy who are on the lookout for a Financial Controller. You will be an integral member of the senior leadership team with a remit to present to the board as well as being responsible for improving processes within the organisation. You will be promoting the notion of finance as a commercially value-adding part of the business as well as being a keen relationship builder in order to instigate and implement process change. You will have the support of a Finance Assistant as well as being able to utilise vastly experienced external advisors in order to mentor you and develop you into becoming the future Finance Director of the business as you join this business on a long-term journey.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Setting the finance vision for the business, ensuring everyone in the company understands and supports this, through clear and consistent communications
  • Ensuring timely and accurate reporting for monthly management information, quarterly returns, and annual accounts 
  • Managing Aged Debtors reports 
  • Identify improvements to the business, across a broad range of topics (e.g. pricing, project profitability, salary structures, etc.)
  • Taking responsibility for setting the annual budgets for the business
  • Liaising with external advisors on behalf of the Board
  • Negotiating contracts, agreements, terms and pricing with clients and suppliers 
You will: 
  • Be a fully qualified accountant (ACCA, CIMA) with 2+ years post qualified experience
  • Have experience in a growing consultancy/agency who have grown from the 'start-up' phase
  • Have demonstrable experience in process improvements (WIP/Billing, Project and Resource Planning, Contract Negotiation)
  • Be a strong communicator and relationship builder across all levels of the business
So if you are a hungry, driven and ambitious finance professional who harbours ambitions to become a future Finance Director, who wants to get involved in future international expansions and acquisitions and you thrive in a growing creative consultancy then this is the role for you!
