We are supporting a medium to large Business in finding a talented Head of Commercial Finance to work with their Government and Public Sector contracts division. They are seeking a qualified Accountant with extensive commercial finance experience. A salary of £80,000 to £90,000 is on offer, plus car allowance, pension, PHI and bonus.

The location of the role is pretty flexible given it will involve a mix of national travel across their multiple sites and some home working.

The business has achieved unparalleled growth over the last few years via both organic growth coupled with some strategic acquisitions. With ambitious growth plans in place, this role represents an opportunity to play a significant role in shaping the future direction of this ambitious business.
