The Opportunity

Are you looking for the step to Finance Director within a modern SME? You’ll be joining a tech-driven ecommerce group as the number 1 in finance. 

You’ll enjoying being a key member of the senior leadership team and a vital voice in the boardroom from day one.

It’s an ambitious, aspirational and agile business with a solid track record (circa £25m turnover). 

You’ll be managing a talented small team and the role requires someone with confidence, drive, enthusiasm and a hands-on approach.  It’s an incredible opportunity for someone currently operating at Head of Finance / Financial Controller level looking for the step to a fully fledged FD role. 

Your remit is basically the full train set – management accounts review and presentation, board pack delivery, budgeting, forecasting, stat accounting and year end management, senior stakeholder engagement (internal and external)… 

You need to be a commercially astute and strategically aware finance professional – you will have operated at FC / HoF or FD level previously and have real drive and a highly proactive approach to problem solving.  

The business is in good shape and has recently received investment from a significant new shareholder. You’ll have chance to play an integral role in the ongoing success & growth management. 

You need:

  • To be looking to step into a varied and all encompassing FD position within an agile SME in West Yorkshire. 
  • A proven track record of adding value in a challenging role as FD, FC or Head of Finance. 
  • High level of IT literacy – this is a tech led ecommerce setting with lots of data to dive into and make sense of. 
  • Ability to present to senior shareholder / owner level. 
  • A hands on approach to the numbers – this is a setting where you need to be comfortable rolling up sleeves and not atop an ivory tower. 
  • Ability to manage and coach others. 
  • Ability to influence key decision making. 

It’s a superb step up for a highly ambitious and confident FC.
