Following an acquisition my client requires an assistant financial controller to help stabilise and then integrate new co into the main group function. This role will then join the group finance team and be involved in future acquisitions and change projects.

My client is a highly acquisitive, pe backed digital market leading communications provider and following it's latest acquisition requires an assistant financial controller. Initially the role will focus on working with the small finance team ensuring the month end processes continue (journal postings, reconciliations, trial balance review, management account prep). Inevitably, following the acquisition there is some change within the team so this individual will be expected to stabilise the team and the accounting processes. Next task will be to integrate into group finance and move from Xero to Access Dimensions. Once the integration has been completed this role will become part of the group finance team and carry out the ongoing finance routine whilst also being involved in future acquisitions and change projects.

The successful candidate will be a hands on self starter with experience of preparing management accounts and trial balance reviews. You will also need to be a problem solver with experience of process improvement and team management. If you have some experience in finance transformation and/or change this would also be useful.

This is a great opportunity to not only make an impact and help decide the accounting future of this newly acquired business but a chance to develop management skills and join a rapidly growing digital leader. The business has repeatedly been included in the Sunday Times list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and has achieved a silver accreditation for Investors in People.

We are recruiting this role on a permanent basis but for speed would also welcome applications from individuals who would be interested in a temp to perm option. The role will be based 3 days on site and 2 working from home (weekly working pattern)
