We've been appointed to find a Group Finance Director on behalf of an investment management firm. It's an established firm that has undergone significant growth in the past five years. We are looking for an experienced Finance Director to help lead and manage the finance team deliverables as an able lieutenant to a long-serving CFO. The role will have able support from above and below and therefore the core deliverable - co-ordinating and management of the group finance team - should be executable on a three-day per week basis.

Description

The appointee will oversee a large team, with two direct reports, who will line manage small teams each. As Group Finance Director, the CFO will need you to coordinate, plan, manage and lead the team. Moreover, the CFO would like the Group Finance Director to introduce more rigour to the current, processes and reporting. The finance function is in a productive, serviceable state but there is an opportunity to create efficiencies, ensure errors or inconsistencies are spotted earlier and, in short, to create more time for the CFO and Group Finance Director to focus on the value-add, as opposed to review.

  • Leadership and development of the group finance team
  • Lead the budgeting, forecasting and planning process across the group
  • Understand the performance drivers and challenge the risks & opportunities
  • Assist in the development of longer-term growth strategies
  • Reviewing audited fund financial statements
  • Support (and in the future potentially lead) the portfolio reporting and valuation process
  • Oversight for the structuring of new funds

Skills

The appointee must be an experienced Financial Controller or Finance Director who's spent their career in the investment management sector.
