I am currently looking for a commercially focused, qualified accountant to join a leading Investment Services business as a Financial Controller. Essentially, the client is looking for someone to come in and take lead in setting up a new finance function, allowing the successful candidate a large amount of autonomy in improving and implementing new finance processes where necessary. Aside from this, providing analysis, insight, modelling, budgeting and forecasting are all encompassing within the role.

As Financial Controller, you would be responsible for working very closely with the Finance Director in developing a slick finance function, so that includes ensuring all reports are completed and delivered on time, as well as working in unison with the rest of the business.

The successful candidate will need to have worked cross-territory (albeit remotely), as well as experience in management, both with direct reports and offshore teams. This is truly a value add role, where you would be able to see first-hand, the impact and change your work is having.

Requirements: -

  • Qualified accountant (ACA / ACCA / CIMA)
  • 3-5 years PQE
  • Strong experience in financial control
  • Recognised leadership skills
  • Experience working in a multicurrency global environment
