An exciting opportunity has arisen within a European real estate business, for a senior finance professional to join them as no.2 to the CFO in a financial controller capacity, with a highly commercial and analytical slant. The firm have continued to enjoy strong performance which has seen the business grow consistently over the last 5 years through both acquisitions and organic growth. The CFO has now decided that he would now like to grow the finance function and wants to focus on the commercial capability that the team has to help with strategic decision making, which is why he is now looking for a FP&A director / financial controller to join them with a remit of building a team and implementing positive finance change.
The successful FP&A Director will be joining the business with control of the commercial finance team, which will need to be built out as well as having oversight of the corporate accounting team (this will be light touch) and be a member of the UK management team. Some of the challenges that you will face when joining will be to establish strong relationships with the business and senior management, with the expectation that you will build new reporting for the board. Aside from this you will also work very closely with the CFO, helping with a variety of ad-hoc project work including potential due diligence work on any new acquisition targets.
To be considered for this position you will be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA), have a strong grounding in understanding of IFRS reporting and spent your most recent years working in an FP&A/business partnering capacity. You will like to be challenged and also work in a role that will offer you a wide range of projects to get stuck into. This role will offer an experienced finance professional a great platform to work with the senior management of a successful business where you work with have a direct impact on the performance of the business and a clear route to developing yourself into a finance director or CFO of the future.
