Are you an ambitious Financial Controller who has hit a glass ceiling in terms of career progression? Do you thrive in being an integral part of growing SME businesses? Does the mixture of a hands-on yet commercial finance role excite you?


I am working closely with a reputable PR company that is part of a global agency network in their search for a Head of Finance. They are looking for an aspirational Head of Finance who will both act as the day-to-day manager of the finance function while operating as a strategic business partner to the Managing Director as they seek to continue their impressive growth. 


Key duties include:


  • Overall responsibility for managing the finance function
  • Providing commercial insight to the MD and Board, in order to drive profitable growth and to optimise the company’s financial performance
  • Manage the P&L and balance sheet and provide day to day leadership and development of the finance function
  • Preparation and analysis of accurate financial reports
  • Full management of the budgeting and forecasting cycle
  • Variance analysis actuals vs budget
  • Monthly fee analysis, reviewing in line with contract terms
  • Management of Assistant Financial Controller
  • Supporting commercial bids and pricing related to new contracts
  • Quarterly VAT returns
The ideal candidate will be:
  • A fully qualified Accountant (CIMA, ACCA, ACA or similar)
  • Have prior experience in the Marketing/Advertising/Media industry
