Our client, a FTSE 250 outsourcing organisation, are looking to recruit a Divisional Finance Director to join their team on an interim basis. Reporting directly into the CFO, you will be responsible for all financial aspects of the division, working closely with other divisions' MD's to achieve the Annual Operating Plan and ensure that business objectives and strategy are designed and delivered. You'll be responsible for the effective management of the Division's working capital position and will pay a key role in all audit activity. In additional to this you will provide commercial support to the operation with regards to procurement and cost control, including integration with internal and external suppliers.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with 10+ years PQE, excellent analytical sills and proven ability to understand and solve complex issues. With the organisation changing rapidly, and financial systems requiring upgrading and rationalising, there will be a demand for this person to demonstrate tenacity and resilience to fulfil demands for ever improving management information, while dealing with legacy systems and implementing a number of change programmes.
You'll have excellent stakeholder management skills and be an effective communicator, comfortable working in a matrix environment.
