Job Description

Client Details

A FTSE listed, high growth, cash rich, acquisitive Manufacturing business.


Firstly, the successful candidate will need to ensure that the Finance Shared Service Centre provides a first class service to the business. This will involve analysing existing processes and controls, making changes where necessary, and then ensuring they are implemented to improve the service the function offers.

Secondly, and in conjunction with the above, to be the deputy Finance Director for a sizeable Division of the same business. This may involve management reporting, ad hoc analysis, M&A activity, FP&A, business integration projects - whatever the division requires to maintain it's market leading position!


The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant - very likely ACA - and will be able to demonstrate strong man management experience of sizeable teams (20+).

Experience of running a transactional Finance function, ideally in a Shared Service Centre, is extremely useful.

You will be comfortable implementing new processes and controls, and will have the gravitas and intellect to be equally comfortable managing a large transactional team, and working with / presenting to, the C-Suite of a global listed business.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic background, and will have experience of working for a sizeable business. The ability to approach complex issues with a clear and incisive approach is likely to be extremely useful!

The opportunity to make changes and see tangible outcomes from those changes.

A competitive salary/package, with an excellent bonus potential.
