Are you a capable Finance team leader, looking for a contract opportunity to lead a successful team? Are you a skilled Management Accounts professional looking to add value to a complex organisation?

My client has a complex Group structure meaning that the Management Accounting function has a crucial “value-add” service to deliver. The Finance Manager will work on a maternity cover contract for twelve months with key responsibilities such as:

  • Leading a small team of Management Accountants, overseeing their daily workloads and ensuring month end is delivered to tight timeframes
  • Overseeing the team focusing on the Group’s subsidiaries, collating financial information to create accurate and timely reporting for senior management, Board and Finance Committee
  • Producing month end reporting including reporting packs for budget holders to allow for exceptional strategic decision making
  • Supporting the team in delivering high quality subsidiary papers

This role oversees a newly created and growing team at a time of high change following internal promotions. There is a focus on improving the use of systems and Excel is heavily relied upon for reporting, therefore those with strong Excel ability will have the opportunity to flex those skills.

The role is based in an office in West Sussex three days a week, with the remaining two days remote.

Candidates should meet these criteria:

  • Be at least part qualified as an accountant, ideally actively studying towards a full accountancy qualified if not already qualified
  • Have a strong Management Accounting background, experienced in large organisations with complex Group structures
  • Be a proven team leader with a history of success managing high performing teams.

Applications are under constant review. Please apply now!
