Job Description

Your New Company

A progressive company, working within the Telecoms space, is now looking for a Group Financial Controller to head up the EMEA Finance function, with reports from both the UK and Europe. This vacancy has arisen due to a recent restructure of the company - due to the excellent Year on Year growth within the company.

Your New Role

As the Group Financial Controller, you will head up the EMEA Finance function, allowing for real responsibility for the finances of a growing business within the Tech space. This role reports directly into the CFO - and so there is also a great opportunity for senior exposure.

The primary focus of the role is to ensure that the statutory accounts are submitted correctly, under US GAAP and IFRS, as well as managing the lean finance team, of 4 - with 1 qualified accountant. The lean team here will also allow for a really hands on focus in this role, with the majority of the work being about timely reporting.

What You Need to be Successful

You will need to be a fully qualified accountant, with a strong technical skill set with IFRS and UK GAAP.

Strong emphasis is also placed on your ability to manage a small team, and ensure that morale is kept high - but also in check - during a period of change within the business.

What You Will Get in Return

As well as a very competitive salary on offer, including some great benefits including full health cover and life insurance - this company has a great understanding of the work-life balance and so offers flexibility when it comes to needing to end the day early, or start slightly later than arranged working hours.

This role also allows for great senior exposure to C-Suite level, and responsibility for a team which will therefore provide a great role in which you can excel your career and personal development.
