EXCLUSIVE ROLE: I am supporting a Private Equity backed technology group with their search for a Group Financial Controller.

  • Deliver weekly cash-flow reporting to the Board and other key stakeholders.
  • Develop a scaleable set of internal control processes that can be applied on a global scale.
  • Maintain standard stock costs; ensure stock issues are managed promptly with retail / wholesale partners.
  • A broad range of ad hoc projects including supporting refinancing activity.

The ideal candidate for the position of Group Financial Controller will:

  • Be a hands-on qualified accountant who wishes to work in a fast-paced, international PE environment.
