A newly created opportunity for a CIMA, ACCA or ACA Qualified Accountant to join this well established SME services business, preparing for its next phase of growth.

Reporting to, and working closely with, the Managing Director of the business, as Finance Manager you will have broad hands on responsibility for running all aspects of the accounts function.  You will also have an active role in the leadership team of the business, implementing and developing systems and procedures and making proactive recommendations on where improvements to commerciality and profitability could be made.

On a day to day basis, your duties as Finance Manager will include:

  • Preparation of weekly MI reporting with analysis and commentary
