Group Financial Controller

Electric Vehicles Start-up

Ref: TT52041

Competitive + Options

We are currently recruiting for an ambitious and well-funded start-up in the electric vehicles space, which intends to begin full production in the next twelve months. Our client has now reached a size at which they need a Group Financial Controller to manage and develop the growing finance function.


We are now seeking an ambitious individual to act as Group Financial Controller, with a remit to run the finance function on a day-to-day basis and to set up the processes and controls required as the company continues to grow. The successful candidate will work toward stepping up to be Finance Director in the medium term.

You would be responsible for timely, robust, and accurate delivery of internal and external reporting as well as maintaining and evolving a strong control environment to cope with an ever-changing and growing business. You will oversee the preparation of the monthly management accounts and prepare the group Board pack to ensure that the Senior Leadership Team receives useful information and analysis. Although initially a stand-alone position, you will eventually hire and develop a small team.

This is a great opportunity for an ambitious and capable individual to join and help guide an exciting growth story early on its journey.


The successful candidate should be a graduate qualified accountant with several years of post-qualified experience. A sound understanding of IFRS is a prerequisite while experience of international VAT, import/export accounting, and building a team is highly desirable. You will ideally come from industry, but we will also consider candidates straight from public practice with relevant experience. You will need to have excellent communication skills.

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. If you have not heard from us within the next ten working days, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
