Our client is an entrepreneurial, rapidly expanding high-end fashion retailer.

The business is now poised for international growth. As such the CFO is seeking a Head of Finance to join him and lead an established finance team.

The Head of Finance is a newly created role that will report directly to the CFO. Core responsibilities will focus on improving management reporting processes, delivering commercial insight to key business drivers and working closely internal stakeholders on change management projects.

Day-to-day duties will include:

  • Ensuring the delivery of management accounts and KPIs
  • Reviewing department performance on a regular basis
  • Analysing and interrogating key data to highly commercial opportunities
  • Deliver the budget and audit
  • Mange cash and FX
  • Managing the finance team (currently 5 people)
  • Sit on the Operating Board and build effective working relationships across the business with Senior Management

This role would appeal to an ambitious, entrepreneurial accountant looking for a high visibility role in a successful, growing business. You must be technically strong yet commercially astute, with the ability to immerse yourself in the detail whilst being aware of the strategic focus of the organisation. The business has a creative, energetic culture and you should be comfortable working across disciplines at all level of seniority. It is also expected that you have worked in a standalone capacity in an SME, and will have prior experience of working in a retail environment.
