Job Description

Finance Director Designate - Bradford - Up to £75k

Finance Director Designate roles are rare. Most of them are glorified FC roles with the "promise" of something bigger in time. They're designed to attract bright people into businesses but then often the organisation fails to deliver on its promise.

Are you looking for a new challenge having grown frustrated at the lack of progress at your current company? Do you want to have the autonomy to make changes, influence right across the business and work closely with the MD in building a business?

You may be wondering what makes this role different? If you get it right here, you could be FD of a proper business and have a few battle scars that will make you hot property for the rest of your career.

It's not for the faint-hearted. The business used to turn over around £25m and has shrunk its operations to £8m. We're in post-CVA mode - the difficult conversations with suppliers have been done but cash management is now paramount. The point I'm making is that this is a well-established business (nearly 150 years old in fact), not someone's pipedream.

If you're up for it, and not afraid to learn new tricks in a complex environment, then get in touch on 0113 457 9990 or email
