Are you a Financial Controller? Can you get to Mansfield (Nottingham)? Are you immediately available for an Interim contract?

If yes to all three, then click apply and we'll have a conversation about our SME that is run by an MD who is looking for a proactive, energetic, and passionate individual, who is a team player and commercially astute. Ideally you will be a 'hands on' business driver who is absolutely committed to both personal and corporate growth.

Offering up to £275 per day. Minimum 3 months duration.

Our client is looking to work with an interim Financial Controller as they recruit for a permanent long term option. The main responsibility of the role will be the effective delivery of financial reporting and controls along with management of the Finance Team of two people.

You will be responsible for reviewing the monthly management accounts and providing all the back end commentaries which will be presented to the Senior Leadership Team and internal stakeholders, working with the MD to determine commercial insight.

Additionally you will prepare the annual statutory accounts and manage the relationship with the external auditors. The role will also focus on strategic planning and positioning of the business in partnership with the Senior Leadership Team.

Essentially, this role cares more about your experience, so while being qualified CIMA/ACA/ACCA is great, we're also open to people who are qualified by experience.

-Motivate the Finance Team to deliver a strong financial service which adds value to the business.
-Ad-hoc and planned projects to improve controls, systems, methods and the accuracy information.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone used to working within a changing SME entrepreneurial environment. The MD needs someone with dynamism who can operate at senior leadership team level as well as handle the day to day management accounts/reporting and finance functions. The role will be hands on and high pressure within a fast growing business environment.

Additionally you will have excellent communication skills, be a real self-starter capable of working as part of a small team and combine both technical and commercial finance skills.
