Would you like to advance your career in an established yet growing international business who are renowned for the development of their back-office staff members? Do you wish to work for a high-growth organisation that operates all over the world? Do you harbour ambitions in becoming a future Finance Director?

An industry-renowned digital/tech recruitment business is seeking an impressive and ambitious Head of Finance to join their team. The number 2 in a finance team of 8, this individual will be required to manage a number of the more junior team members who are responsible for the more hands-on aspects of the month-end reporting.

The key responsibilities include:

  • Management of 5 direct reports within the finance department
  • Business partnering with numerous senior stakeholders, both within the organisation and outside it
  • Working closely with the FD and helping them with any commercial ad hoc tasks that arise
  • Overseeing the management accounts, completing the balance sheets and analysis of the P&L
  • Completing the budgeting and forecasting for the entirety of the organisation

The ideal Financial Controller will have:

  • An accounting qualification, either CIMA, ACA or ACCA (PQ/Finalist will be considered)
  • Previous experience working in the recruitment sector in a contractor driven recuritment business
  • Completed the Management Accounts on an end to end basis in a previous role, including commentary
  • Prior experience of team management
If you're an ambitious, red-hot Management Accountant with good knowledge of pay & bill processes in a recruitment business then this is the role for you. Apply today as shortlisting is currently underway.
