International B2B Manufacturer & Retailer
- Up to £110,000 + bonus
Our client is an International B2B manufacturer and retailer based in Surrey. Pioneers in their field, the business has an extensive portfolio of products that are recognised as being market leading across the sector. The business is innovative and continually adapts to use the latest techniques and materials to set the industry standard. This international company continues to report year on year growth, has a healthy bottom line and feel strongly that this progression is set to continue.
Reporting to the MD, the company is seeking an experienced financial professional to join as Finance Director and oversee the financial management of the company. Managing a small team you will work to improve the level and quality of management information and drive the implementation of robust systems, controls and processes. As a board member of a team of five Directors, you will also be expected to play a part in shaping the commercial and strategic direction of the company. As a leading member of the management team you will have excellent attention to detail and be able to deliver high quality information whilst operating as a commercially driven Finance Director, with the ability to spot opportunities, make and drive decisions.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with significant post-qualified experience, you may already be acting as a Finance Director, but could also be a high calibre Financial Controller or Head of Finance stepping up. Previous experience of delivering timely, accurate and meaningful financial information is key. Prior experience of working in an international environment, ideally a manufacturing company, is a strong advantage, but not essential. The individual will need to be highly motivated and driven, with the communication skills required to successfully operate at all levels of the business. The ability to combine financial duties whilst providing commercial and value add support to the business is absolutely essential. The Finance Director must also have highly developed interpersonal skills so that the existing team can be further developed in to the highest quality finance function.
This is an extremely exciting opportunity to join a growing, profitable business, in an influential role. This position is instrumental in defining the shape and direction of the finance function as the company continues to grow. You will be required to act as a true business partner to the MD and the management team to help drive the business into the next phase of its development. It is also seen as an important entry role into what is a much larger international Group, with demonstrable career progression.
