Senior Finance Manager - Nottingham - Up to £60,000
Cherry Professional are recruiting an interim Senior Finance Manager for a well-established and highly sought-after organisation based in Nottingham. If team and performance management isn't your thing, then this probably isn't the right opportunity for you. We are looking for someone who enjoys a challenge and has direct experience of managing larger teams, galvanising staff and optimising processes. Beginning late-July, you will be leading a 9-month project to restructure a finance team, improve performance and embed business partnering.
Leading a team of 12 and reporting into the Head of Finance, you will be responsible for identifying bottlenecks, optimising processes, managing performance and improving relationships with internal stakeholders. The team cover Management Accounts, Budgets and Business Partnering for the Operations side of the organisation. There are 6 members of the team covering transactional finance (AP, AR and Credit Control) and 6 Management Accountants/Finance Business Partners. The general feeling is that the transactional staff aren't being utilised in the right way and much of their work is still being done by the Management Accountants. This must be addressed, as they are looking to transform the role of the Management Accountants into Finance Business Partners.
The role requires someone with strong leadership skills, who can pick things up very quickly. You must have at least 3 years' experience of managing large finance teams, along with a background in both technical accounting and commercial finance. Ideally, we are looking for a Qualified Accountant (ACCA, ACA or CIMA). It is essential that you can start ASAP (no later than the beginning of August) and commit to the full 9-month contract. Please get in touch as soon as possible if you're interested in this opportunity.
