Our client is a growing, owner-managed, highly entrepreneurial events management / online publishing business. They have a very strong brand in their chosen markets and operate on an international level. They are now seeking a Financial Controller to manage a small team and support the Finance Director and dynamic management team as they continue to expand.

This role will be highly visible and will require the Financial Controller to develop processes and internal systems to support growth.

Core duties will include;

· Take ownership of the budgetary process

· Review and improve financial controls and processes

· Introduce a weekly cash-flow forecast

· Provide commercial and strategic input to the management team

· Improve the flow of MI throughout the business

· Take ownership of legal matters including contractual terms / pricing negotiations

· Manage a small finance team

The Financial Controller will be the primary interface between the finance department and the operational side of the business in the absence of the FD. It is a very ‘hands on’ role with high visibility in a business which is experiencing rapid growth and will continue to expand. The business has a creative culture, and its employees are energetic and enthusiastic about the space they operate in. It is therefore imperative that you have a passion for working in a ‘people business’ and can develop excellent working relationships with non-finance colleagues.

You will be a fully qualified accountant, with aspirations to be part of an entrepreneurial venture in an autonomous, visible role. Ideally you will have experience within a contracts-based organisation and you should have prior experience within an SME.
