You're looking to be Finance Director, honestly. Reporting directly to the senior management team and making a difference.

Building internal and external relationships, automating processes, using your commercial acumen to prepare a business for sale.

Maybe you will be part of the MBO. But you'll want to be rewarded well, earning the Finance Director role in coming months. Maybe even equity.

Because you've studied ( ACA ACCA or CIMA ), worked hard, managed a team, probably in manufacturing or distribution. And been patient. You've proven your technical capability and that you're commercial in your outlook.

You've waited long enough.

Maybe you're not comfortable enough to make a move from your current post for fear of the unknown but trust us when we say, now is your time. You're staring in the face of an FC role that will be promoted to FD as part of active succession planning.

Managing a small finance function of three people, for a group of companies internationally, including group audit, management accounts and multi-currency management.

You'll present and explain the financials to the Board, adapting and developing the management information to maximise its impact. And you'll review processes and procedures, ensure the team structure and environment is appropriate for the business as it grows, and encourage cross-department co-operation.

The business turns over $20m and growing, with a presence in another European location, North America, Asia, transcontinental Russia and breaking into the Middle East.

And you'll be part of moving the focus from historical financial reporting to being more forward-thinking to maximise this growth and minimise risk.

Benefits are simple, including statutory pension and holiday pay but the salary is highly competitive and here you have a real career as well as the opportunity to own equity. There's parking on-site if that's a deal-cruncher. But you can walk to the nearby railway station.
