The Business

My client is a large manufacturing group with multiple sites across the UK and a branded customer base.

The business is looking for a professional contractor to run all financial aspects of the Burnley site and upskill a talented rising star from a management accountant into a junior Financial Controller.

The Role
Reporting to the UK based Group Finance Director you will run the Burnley site from a financial perspective covering all aspects of reporting, working capital management and decision support.

Following a structured handover from the existing Financial Controller you will also be tasked with mentoring a Management Accountant who has been identified as a high performer and future leader of the business.

Over the 6 month period you will guide this individual from both a behavioural and technical perspective into a junior Financial Controller, capable of leading the site once you move on.

Other specific duties include:

  • Group reporting, monthly forecasting, annual budgeting and regular balance sheet updates.
  • Weekly cash flow forecasting, management of transactional function (2 team members).
  • Year end audit management, stock reporting & control
  • Partnering with the site management team including the General Manager, Production Manager and Sales Director. Your input will be sought on pricing, profitability analysis, job costing and variance analysis.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will ideally be ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified with at least 4 years experience as a Financial Controller.

Ideally we are looking for someone with an existing track record as a professional contractor who has delivered on similar hands on assignments with an aspect of mentoring.

Recent manufacturing experience is also a must.

You will be a vital source of positivity, morale and momentum for the team and lead by example.
