A growing family owned business has identified the need for a very commercially focused Finance Controller. The business has been established for over 40 years and has grown to approximately 25 staff with a turnover approaching £4m and realistic growth plans to significantly exceed this over the coming years.

This is a seismic change for the business with a view to helping the current family FD to finish implementing Netsuite ERP, and set up the processes and procedure, and move out of the finance role with a view to shift focus to be more profit generating. The financial controller will be reporting directly to the Managing Director replacing the existing Financial Partner over a period of time. The current accounting function is very capable and is producing accurate accounts but is very reactive and the business owners have identified the need for a commercially minded Financial Controller to influence operational decision making and strategy
