They like people who think outside the box in their Finance team. Whilst being technically astute, you will need to bring strong business acumen and be able to consider the commercial accounting impacts as well as technical impacts for the business.

- Continual review of departmental allocations of costs, challenging divisional heads over costs
- Providing financial guidance and support to colleagues on accounting processes
- Driving continuous improvement in systems & controls
- Managing external financial audit process & liaison with ISO external auditors
You’ll have a real appetite and curiosity for detail, and a proactive approach to ‘go find’, understanding what’s important and making things happen.

Your Experience...
- ACA, ACCA, CIMA Qualified 
- Strong technical grounding with experience and a good knowledge of bookkeeping including consolidation accounting, balance sheets and cash-flow procedures. 
- Demonstrable experience of working in a SME business
