Level of qualification

End to end Finance Director role for a dynamic, multi-site, autonomous business.
Supporting the CEO with developing and executing a growth strategy.

Client Details

A market leading, PE Backed Manufacturing business.


The end to end Finance Director is responsible for all aspects of Finance, in addition to being heavily involved in strategic and operational activity.

Working closely with the CEO, the FD will play a key part in devising and executing a growth strategy. As a key member of the board, the FD will need to influence other functional heads - (Operations, Sales etc), in order to drive efficiency and increase profits and productivity.

The Finance Director will also need to ensure that the Finance function offers a first class service to the business, and that all statutory and management accounting provision is of an exceptional quality.


The successful candidate is likely to be a qualified accountant - (ideally ACA), with experience of driving improvements.

Experience of providing relevant, meaningful and high quality Management Information to the CEO / MD is essential, as is the ability to "translate" Financial Information to Operations and Sales Departments.

A keen eye for detail and an entrepreneurial outlook are also pre-requisites for the successful candidate.

Previous experience of growing an SME business is extremely highly valued, as is exposure to working with Investors.

Sector experience of Manufacturing, Logistics, Distribution or FMCG would be highly beneficial.

A strong technical background is preferred, as is experience of working for a High Volume / (relatively!) Low Value manufacturing business.

International exposure is highly desirable, as is operating in a multi-currency environment.

Job Offer

A fantastic opportunity to work alongside an ambitious CEO to take a market leading business to the next level.

A competitive package and the opportunity to work with an impressive board and backers.
