Our client is a branded, entrepreneurial and well-known restaurant group with a unique customer offering and strong position in the market. The business has achieved great success to date and has exciting growth plans.
To support and facilitate this growth, the business is now looking to recruit a high calibre, commercially oriented Interim Finance Director to take full accountability for running all aspects of the finance function. Reporting directly to the CEO and with significant exposure to senior management, key responsibilities will include:
*Acting as a strong business partner to the CEO and broader management team, supporting commercial and operational decision-making across the organisation
*Ensuring appropriate structures are in place to service the business, maintain tight control, drive continuous improvement, best practice and efficiencies
*Managing budgeting, forecasting and planning process, delivering improved management information and developing new reports and models as appropriate
*Analysing new and existing business initiatives, challenging assumptions and highlighting any risks and opportunities - including new site acquisitions, competitor and market analysis, marketing initiatives and supply chain / procurement processes
The successful candidate will be a 'hands on' qualified accountant with proven experience of operating in a fast paced, multi-site, consumer focussed environment. You will be comfortable dealing with the complexity of multiple revenue streams. Prior experience of working within a growing SME, and ideally with previous exposure of operating in an owner-managed organisation would be highly desirable.
