You actually enjoy working with your team in the office but looking for a move, a new challenge and contributing in a meaningful way to a growing firm that can offer you stability.

As a qualified accountant, from an SME background with knowledge within construction, you'll want an interesting position within a smaller team, with variety and responsibility, reporting to an experienced FD of a growing business who would love you to be part of the next phase, using your technical knowledge, experience and proactive approach to support strategic decision making.

The FDs role has broadened and includes company operations, so you'll deal with the day-to-day including statutory reporting, group consolidations and cash management, As well as balance sheet recs, tax computations and dealing with auditors.

Your experience in construction means you understand the VAT complexities and CIS and you'll have the ear of the directors, so really appreciated for your proactivity, your technical capability and team management.

The business you'll be joining is one that was turning over £4m three years ago and has now reached £12m, continues to grow and this includes plans to expand into Europe in 2023. They're in maintenance and installations and recently added health and safety to their offering.

Growing means they are making big changes to ensure they are attractive to new employees but currently a package of 31 days annual leave including bank holidays (you'll need to save some for Christmas close), a good AXA healthcare policy and a brand-new annual bonus scheme is being implemented.

Pension is statutory but they acknowledge this might become part of your remit to look around at improving in time.
