Have you ever joined me in that moment when you’re ordering off a menu, see three different ingredients and just know they’re going to be something delicious like white chocolate, raspberry and almond?


It’s the same with this Senior Finance Opportunity, leading a team, embedding a new system and engaging customers. That either sets your taste buds off or it doesn’t.





Let’s start with leading a team, this is about engaging, embedding and enthusing a team of up to 25 analysts across two sites. They’ll need your leadership, established in role this is more about creating an environment of employee engagement and performance. Over the next 12 months one of the key challenges will be moving from an obsolete system to one that effectively enables great decision making out in the business. Crucially this role acts as an ambassador for everything the organisation stands for, presenting to customer groups internally and externally is a pivotal part of the role.



So if you’re still with me, like me I wonder whether you’re thinking so what does it take? Well Flexibility and agility are the first tools you’ll be reaching for, with the ability to prioritise and spot the lions when half the jungle could be running towards you. Robust, resilient and seasoned in conflict management until this becomes business as usual there is a huge change curve to take people on and is no walk in the park. You can hear it’s going to be tough so why do it, well the organisation is meaningful, your leader will give you full autonomy to shape it as you see it and the flexibility to manage across the sites as your diary sees fit.

We’d love to hear from you if you can demonstrate that you have led large teams in a complex organisation through change. Equally that you can evidence development and implementation of an IT system. Finally you’ll have the gravitas and confidence to engage and influence customers. Don’t worry about perfecting your CV this role is definitely about the right person so let’s start with a conversation.
