Head of Treasury
Private Equity backed Property Company
- £120,000 + Bonus + Benefits
Our client is a multi-site property business that was recently acquired by Private Equity. The company has ambitious plans to grow and is already the leading provider of its kind in the UK market.
The Head of Treasury will manage a small, but highly capable team and report to the Director of Corporate Finance & Treasury with responsibility for all aspects of Treasury, including effective management of the groups’ financing structure; oversight of the treasury operation function and the provision of treasury cashflow forecasting and reporting.
Responsibilities will include the management of a £3bn senior debt portfolio, likely to increase over the next 5 years, including ensuring compliance with requirements in senior debt facilities. You will play a key role in assisting in raising new finance and work in conjunction with the Director of Corporate Finance in maintaining and developing bank relationships.
You will be responsible for treasury reporting, including working with the FP&A team in producing monthly and quarterly Board reports as well as ad-hoc reporting for the Director of Corporate Finance. You will have key ownership, in conjunction with the finance team, of short-term liquidity forecasting and 5 year business plan cash forecasts. You will maintain and develop relationships with merchant card providers with the Treasury Operations Manager and be fully responsible for the banking payments system.
As well as your day to day duties, you will play an active role in identifying and implementing operational efficiencies within the broader finance function.
The ideal candidate will be a graduate qualified accountant or qualified ACT or MCT (or equivalent) with significant prior experience in managing treasury affairs in either a listed or Private Equity backed organisation, preferably with exposure to managing senior debt facilities.
You will have considerable experience of complex cash management within an externally financed business with a knowledge of debt waterfalls and an understanding of merchant payment arrangements and real estate finance would be desirable.
Being a strong team player with the ability to work autonomously is essential coupled with a high attention to detail, strong analytical skills, and the ability to interrogate, challenge and maintain the accuracy of data.
Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to liaise with both internal and external stakeholders at all levels is also essential. Candidates will need to possess a “hands on” working style and be willing to get involved in new areas, not limited to those that would traditionally be considered within the remit of a treasury function.
