Posted on:2019-12-23

Job ID: 80348

Category: Director

Sub-category: Finance Director

Location: South

Work Type: Permanent / Full Time

My client is a rapidly expanding and extremely entrepreneurial retail business, with a turnover in excess of £200 million. Privately owned, they have gained a leading position in their market and have ambitious plans to grow further. As part of the strategy, they are now looking to recruit a Commercial Finance Director, to work alongside the CEO and play a major role in the future strategic development of the business.

The role is a board-level appointment and you will be a key part of all business decision making. However, this is a ground-breaking business and therefore there is a sleeves rolled up/hands-on culture, in which all levels of management play their part in the general day to day running of the business. Alongside the standard financial responsibilities, you will take a lead on commercial activities including; raising future capital, large scale property projects and extensive contact with external advisors and key suppliers/partners. The role will be constantly evolving and this will lead to a very open approach to new tasks and challenges.

You will be a qualified accountant with an already impressive CV, which can show real ability to work in a fast-moving and innovative environment. You will be outgoing and able to show a tangible presence. You will also be able to present clear examples of leadership in your roles and show examples of major project management, alongside running and supporting a commercial finance team. Retail automotive industry experience is desirable, but not a governing factor, however, a background in merger/acquisitions, funding and raising capital for a successful and growing business will be highly desirable.
