A FTSE 250 technology business are looking for a commercially minded Finance Manager to join as the second finance hire within a newly created division, looking after a new initiative with extremely high growth projections. The role will be reporting in to a Head of Finance who has an impressive background in working for start-ups and a track record in developing high performing finance teams.
The Finance Manager will have some core duties to carry out on a monthly basis (circa 30% of the role) however there will be an opportunity to work closely with the business heads to help drive and support initiatives for profitable growth and develop commercial awareness to enable a focus on added value. There will also be an importance placed on continually looking at ways to improve processes and systems with the support of the wider business.
The Finance Manager will be a qualified accountant (CIMA/ACA/ACCA) with a background in high growth organisations. Whilst understanding the complexity of a larger business is important, SME experience is preferred due to the 'hands on' nature of the role. An entrepreneurial attitude is essential and with this will come the ability to work autonomously and with a proactive approach.
