The Financial Controller role is hybrid and flexible, it is envisaged that this role will be a blend of home working and office based.

The Financial Controller will provide support to the CFO in the preparation of robust financial information and analysis both in respect of monthly reporting (internal & external) and in respect of ad hoc analysis to support commercial decision making within the business. This role will oversee a team of assistant management accountants to deliver financial reporting on a four weekly basis (flash reporting on a weekly basis) whilst partnering with a number of non financial directors.

· Developing and maintaining analytical reporting, bringing insight in respect of key drivers of the performance of the business;
· Providing timely and reliable reporting and analytical support to stakeholders;

· Identifying and supporting in developing improvements/efficiencies across the business;
· Managing the annual budgeting process from a financial perspective, linking in with the planning team from an operational perspective to help optimise stock levels;
· Managing the annual external audit process.
While responsibilities are apparent above, the successful applicant is expected to be proactive in their pursuit of improving business performance and building relationships with key stakeholders across the business units. You will need to be a confident communicator at all levels and be used to conversing with non-financial specialists on a regular basis. You should have strong commercial and financial understanding along with the experience of challenging when appropriate.
