Working for the likes of Google, Coca Cola & Apple doesn’t appeal to you?

Always saw yourself more as playing a broad role in a smaller, more entrepreneurial environment?

We’re working with an owner managed SME business, specialists in their field, in their search to recruit their FIRST Financial Controller.

Based between Nottingham & Newark you’ll be the No.1 in Finance, responsible for the leading & development of the head office finance & admin function (5 staff).



You’ll be a qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA / CIMA) either… with existing experience working as a Financial Controller, Head of Finance OR FD in small privately owned businesses (likely ranging in size from £5m to £75m t/o) OR be working an Audit Manager in an accountancy firm who’s client base is a close link to similar sized businesses (likely £5m to £75m t/o), with aspirations to make the move into industry.

Responsibilities within the role will include, preparation & ownership of monthly management accounts, bank account reconciliations, liaison with HMRC, annual audit & completion of statutory accounts along with supporting the owner/MD with a range of analysis to support running & growing the business.



You’ll be a qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA) with the hands on experience it takes to run the end to end finance department in a smaller business.

You’ll be required to be hands on as well as strategic, equipped with the flexibility to wear many hats and shift between a broad range of business needs.

Strong communication skills along with the ability to persuade & influence will also stand you in good stead.

If you’d like to hear more about both the immediate and longer term opportunities, get in touch & we’ll tell you all about it.
