Job Description

An SME sized, professional recruitment firm working in high-end markets is looking for a Head of Finance (or Financial Controller) to join the business on a part-time basis (three days per week)

The Company

  • The company consists of two different entities, both working in high-end markets in recruitment.
  • The recruitment business is made up of 50 employees, including a finance team of 5.
  • The business is opening up another entity into another affluent recruitment market in September.
  • They have forecast for 20% growth in the larger entity, and 50% growth in the smaller entity.
  • They have excellent tenure in their finance team - the whole team has been with the business for between 3 years to 8 years.
  • They've had a very technically strong and experienced Head of Finance in for the past few years, who will ensure that there is a smooth handover and no legacy issues (allowing this role to entirely focus on growth and strategy).

The Role

  • Managing an experienced and hardworking finance team (made up of management accountants, payroll, credit control and sales ledger).
  • This role will be integral to setting up a new entity within the business and creating all of its MI reporting and KPI analysis.
  • Being a strategic partner to the board, giving them critical advice on key operational decisions within the recruitment company.
  • Ensure that MI is value adding, that the contractor payroll is running like clockwork, managing the invoice discounting facility, and ensuring that integrity runs through the core of what finance does.

What YOU Need

  • Preferably, ACCA or ACA or CIMA qualified.
  • Will be looking for three days per week.
  • Experience working within a recruitment company.
  • Experience as a Head of Finance or Financial Controller.
  • Experience working within a contractor-driven payroll environment.
