Financial Controller

Job Ref: J2861

Monday 15th June 2020

To £75,000

You're from a complex manufacturing background, with strong standard costing and you're looking for your next move.

Maybe you don't have much choice, thanks to the virus.

So perhaps you'd like that move to be working within a business that has been operating through lockdown since their products remain in demand. Somewhere you can use your strong SAP skills.

Because, let's be honest, you'd prefer not to go from the frying pan to the fire.

And we know you've read this far and thought 'SAP? I don't have SAP, but I have used other ERP systems and I can learn'. And you're not wrong, but for reasons we won't list here, SAP is an essential, non-negotiable skill here. Sorry.

Managing a small, experienced and established team, responsible for the UK finances of a global business. UK turnover is around £30m, to give you an idea of size.

Of course, you'll be responsible for contributing to the success of the business through sound financial planning, providing accurate management reporting, process improvement and compliance with GAAP. As well as capital asset management, balance sheet reviews and costings.

But more than that, you'll be filling the shoes of someone much respected, who understands the detail, who is questioning and has super standard costing knowledge and experience.

You're likely ACA, ACCA or CIMA qualified, using SAP and we expect your Excel is pretty good too.

So, what of this business that has been running through lockdown? They are very well established, family-run, with a truly global presence, with operations across the continents.

And they're sad to see this person go. So you can bet they get a bit attached to great people, make room for progression here possible and are supportive, respectful and friendly.

Benefits are plentiful and can be detailed upon application but include a profit share scheme and healthcare.
