Job Description

Your new company

Your new company is an extremely impressive, and growing business facing into the Hosted Domains, and Telecommunications space - working as one of the leading B2B businesses in this sector. They are extremely international, with offices in 8 different countries around the world and so the business has become quite international and diverse as a result.

They are recruiting for a Group Financial Controller due to a recent internal movement into a newly created role, and so this role will report directly into the CFO and CEO.

Your new role

In your new role as the Group Financial Controller, you will be responsible for all of the Group finance function, and the 12 direct reports that you have in this role.

Each country the business operates in has its own finance structure and so you will not be very hands on in this element, but taking a much higher level overview of this and ensuring that the business' group accounts are accurate and that all reporting is submitted in a timely manner.

You will work closely with the Group FP&A Director on the wider financial strategy, as well as the Country MDs to ensure that their financial strategy aligns with that of the wider business. Further to this, you will step into the CFO's shoes when they are out of the office on business and so this position carries a lot of responsibility and seniority across the Group.

What you'll need to succeed

You will need to be a fully Qualified accountant (ideally ACA from a Top 4 Practice) - with experience working at Group level in an international business. This will have afforded you an opportunity to build on your management piece as well as you will be required to manage 12 people in this role.

What you'll get in return

You will be rewarded with a generous base salary, as well as bonus based on personal and company performance. The business has been doing very well in recent years and this is set to continue.

They are quite an acquisitive business and so you will likely work closely with the CFO and FP&A Director to ensure that the business is acquiring the right companies, and that they are integrated properly into the wider Group once they are on board.
