Finance Director

Private Equity Backed

Ref: DC52024

North East/Flexible
£150,000 - £200,000 + Bonus + Equity

Our client is a leading private equity backed business with revenues in excess of £500m and exciting growth plans to take the business to approaching £1bn revenues over a 5 year period, through both organic and acquisitive growth.


In order to support these ambitious growth plans, we are looking to recruit a senior Finance Director to take responsibility for all aspects of the financial management of the business. Reporting to the current CFO, this appointment is intended to offer succession planning in the mid-term and is an opportunity to join a significant private equity deal at a key point in the company’s development, with exceptional longer term career development opportunities.


The successful candidate should feel comfortable in a leadership role, providing a ‘best practice’ framework for what is a 100+ person finance function. Ideally experience will have been gained in a larger company environment with significant scale of operations. Sector experience within multi-site would be advantageous, as would familiarity with M&A transactions and the key business drivers within a private equity backed business.

Whilst the business is based in the North East and key to the appointment is to provide leadership to a significantly sized finance function, it would be possible for the successful candidate to attend the office 2/3 days a week after an initial period.


To apply to this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively email your CV to Louise Jeffrey: quoting reference DC52024.

Please note that due to the expected volume of applications, we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. We are sorry, but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
