A Sub £5m turnover precision manufacturing firm based in Walsall, are seeking a Qualified Accountant to join them as Financial Controller, with a clear path to Finance Director as the Business executes some planned and extensive acquisition plans, which would see them grow to £100m turnover in around 5 years time. Remuneration on offer is £60,000 salary + pension, Private Health Care and bonus, but this will go up as responsibilities increase through growth of the Business and the role transitions in to a full blown Finance Director.

Initially, part-time hours would be considered, but you would need to transition in to a full time role as the Business grows over the next year or two (and you become Finance Director). Similarly, they are supportive of hiring someone on a full-time basis from the outset. The key will be the individual - you must be a driven, ambitious, talented and entrepreneurial individual who can own the numbers in a Sole Finance position in small Business environment, but cope with growing responsibilities as the Business goes through their growth plan.
