Job Description


Are you an experienced Financial Controller, looking for a change?

The company

Based near Scarborough, this is a well-established business who have just secured significant Private Equity backing. With a niche product offering, they are well-positioned to continue growing whilst adding to their product line.

The role

Reporting to an experienced Finance Director, this is a hands-on role managing a small finance team. There are some improvements to be made on the reporting pack; mostly around speeding things up, automating processes and improving on transparency. You'll need to ensure that none of the controls slip during this process, so you'll be adept at handling BAU whilst making long-term improvements.

With succession in mind, there could be an opportunity here to step up for the right person. Earn your spurs, show some initiative and ambition, and there could be an FD position for you down the line.

There's a PE House involved now, which is new to the business. So you can expect to be pulled in different directions, getting involved in different projects and providing analysis at a level that's previously not been the case. You'll have to be good at this, not bothered by getting stuck into some detail and managing expectations. Ultimately though, you'll have to deliver and people won't be interested in excuses.


Will be a qualified accountant with excellent IT skills;

Have experience of a manufacturing business;

Might have PE experience, but that's not a deal breaker;

Will be strong at managing small teams;

Will be a strong communicator.

In return

An excellent business on your CV, with an excellent remuneration package on offer;

Some highly sought-after Private Equity experience;

A great working environment.
