Financial Controller

£50,000 - £60,000

Newark - Permanent

Posted: 3 weeks ago

Ref: D0023700



Feel like you’re pushing against a closed door… your boss isn’t interested in your suggestions for improving the business and feel like all you’re doing is “keeping score”…

Not here.



The MD/owner of the profitable £30m turnover business we’re working with is looking to appoint their FIRST financial controller. Over a ten year period they’ve seen consistent, sensible growth – both organic & via a handful of acquisitions, and the board feel the time is right to invest in the existing support structure with the appointment of a Qualified Accountant (ACCA / CIMA / ACA) to lead the finance & admin function of x6 staff.

It’s assumed as a qualified accountant you know your way around a balance sheet and the P&L. As you’d expect, as No.1 in finance for this SME business you’ll be required to be as comfortable rolling up your sleeves posting journals, ensuring the 600 staff get paid & preparing the accounts as you are sat discussing strategy for the next 3yrs plan with the MD & Board members.



The successful candidate will be offered the opportunity to improve existing processes & also to suggest & implement what you believe to be the best way of doing things. You won’t have a bottomless budget so it’s understood you’ll be a resilient character with the “get up & go” personality to at times make the most with what you have as well as looking for new solutions.
