Reporting to the CFO, this high profile and business critical role includes:

  • Managing a team to deliver multi-region financial/management reporting requirements
  • Coaching the team to improved quality and timing of cyclical reporting

This is a highly entrepreneurial organisation that has been on an exciting growth journey and, as such is now becoming a more established corporate entity.

With a resilient and pragmatic personality, able to bring a problem solving and clear communication approach to business, you will also be a strong technical accountant. Happy to 'get stuck in' and with a desire to drive change , your demonstrable drive and determination to deliver will reflect in a proven track record of value-add across financial control.
