Elevation Senior Finance are delighted to be partnering exclusively with a rapidly growing, PE backed business in Sheffield as they seek to appoint their first Finance Director. This long standing engineering business has developed a strong brand name in their sector over the years and having recently secured additional investment, are excited about the prospects ahead of them.
Due to their continued growth and expansion, it has quickly become apparent that the company needs to strengthen the board team with the addition of a Finance Director. This will be a broad and challenging finance role requiring an individual to not only add value around the board table but ‘roll their sleeves up’ to get stuck in to the detail of the day to day finance operations.
Having operated in the same way for a number of years, it is essential that the finance department is modernised following the appointment of this Finance Director. The incumbent will be tasked with updating/replacing the current finance system, driving process improvement (where possible automating processes), improving the turnaround time of the management accounts production and most importantly, ensuring that the finance department begin to provide regular commercial and analytical reporting/information to the wider business.
Although this is a Finance Director appointment, it is important that applicants realise the full nature of the position and are willing/able to get in to the detail and work closely with the small finance team in making these changes. With that in mind, although I am open to applicants from any background, my client feels this role would best suit an ambitious Financial Controller or Head of Finance who is ready to make the step up to Finance Director.
In what has been a challenging job market for the last few months, this is a rare and genuinely exciting job opportunity that offers the successful candidate the chance to be a part of this ambitious businesses growth journey.
