We are assisting a well known Logistics sector company based in Coventry, with finding a Head of Finance, who will work as the No.1 in Finance for a newly acquired contract. Reporting in to a Divisional Finance Director, you will be paid a salary in the range of £65k to £75k + car or car allowance, pension, PHC and annual bonus.

Managing a team of 35, with 4 direct reports, the Head of Finance will be responsible for managing all financial and planning aspects of the contract, including warehousing, transport, Home Delivery Service, inbound and customer services. You'll also be a member of the contract Senior Management Team, ensuring all of the financial and KPI reporting for all business stakeholders is complete and accurate.

I'd describe this position as a mix of Senior level Finance Business Partnering and Financial Planning & Analysis responsibilities, you'll definitely need to be adept at spinning a number of plates at once. You'll be responsible for managing four Regional Finance Managers (linked to a wider Finance team of 35), and will be required to travel on occasion to the various sites across the UK (albeit, lots of virtual meetings take place via Google Hang-out).

You must be a Qualified Accountant with at least 5 years post-qualification experience behind you. Experience with the Health Care and / or Logistics sectors is important, as is dealing with large-scale contracts.

By applying you will be registered as a candidate with Gleeson Recruitment Limited. Our Privacy Policy is available on our website and explains how we will use your data.
