The position on offer is an exciting, varied role looking after the accounting functions of two companies, Retail Packaging Solutions Limited (RPS) based in Sutton-in-Ashfield and Delta Pack Ltd based in Birmingham. The former is a fulfilment warehousing operation and the latter is a paper bag manufacturer both owned by Grafham Holdings Ltd.
This is a new role due to both companies being recent acquisitions, in the same part of the country and being interdependent. RPS being the largest customer of Delta Pack.
It is envisaged that the successful candidate will spend 3-4 days at RPS and 1-2 days at Delta Pack. In addition to the normal responsibilities of budgeting, account preparation and forecasting, it is expected that the role will encompass assisting in the implementation of a new warehousing system at RPS and working with the MD at Delta Pack to successfully relocate the company within the Birmingham area.
Reporting to the Group Financial Director but also working closely with the site managing directors the successful candidate will be invited to the monthly board meetings and will be encouraged to have an active input into the strategy and management of the two companies.
Due to the broad remit of this role we believe that this opportunity would
suit somebody who :
- is CIMA/ACCA qualified,
- has worked in SME’s, preferably manufacturing or warehousing,
- is confident in implementing application software,
- is looking for a developing role not necessarily restricted to the finance function,
- is comfortable with product costing to assist in pricing strategies.
In return, the package on offer is a good salary, bonus scheme, pension and private health.
The RPS part time FD retires at the end of September; there is some flexibility, but we hope to appoint by the end of August.
