SME Financial Controller (turnaround)
I’m delighted to be recruiting a really interesting role for a sub-£10m business based in Birmingham who are looking to bring in a Financial Controller as their number one in finance to work alongside the Managing Director. As part of a larger group, this business is going through a long period of change and needs a stable and experienced finance leader to continue steering the ship through a turnaround project.
As the Financial Controller, you will report directly into the Managing Director, with a dotted line relationship to the Group Financial Controller / Group Finance Director. Immediate projects to get involved with will be:
• Improvement of financial reporting procedures, to generate more meaningful analytics and insight into business activity on a month-by-month basis
• Supporting the implementation of a new reporting system
• Complete overhaul of the inventory management processes
• Sole ownership of the budgeting, forecasting and performance analysis tools to improve bottom line
At current the business is increasing its top line revenue by 10-15% year-on-year, but the work of the Financial Controller will be to improve operations to have a positive impact on the bottom line. Alongside these projects, your day-to-day responsibilities long-term will include:
• Production and full ownership of monthly management accounts
• Budgeting and cash flow forecasting
• Overseeing the accounts team who manage transactional finance, journal postings, etc
• Working as a strategic partner to the Managing Director to inform business decision-making
• Liaising with the parent company’s group finance function to support year end statutory accounting
You will be a qualified (ACCA, ACA or ACMA) accountant with SME experience, specifically having been involved in turnarounds and medium-to-long term continuous improvement / transformation projects. You must have a really confident personality and a positive attitude – we’re looking for someone who has the energy to come in every day and really make a difference.
