As the Finance Manager your day-to-day role will include the following duties:-

Our client is ideally looking for a qualified accountant, however they will consider part qualified individuals who are looking to complete their studies soon. The main skill required is man management. It doesn't matter if you've managed 2 or 20 people, the main requisite is that you are a confident people leader and it's something you are passionate about and wish to continue.

You will still be producing the accounts for one site, so it's important that you can still roll your sleeves up and get into the detail when required.

This really is a fantastic opportunity, so please do reach out to Lucy Regan for a confidential discussion about it.

To apply please send your CV, quoting our reference and specifying which website you saw this position advertised on. Due to the high volume of applications please accept that if we have not responded to your application within seven days, your application has not been successful.
