Sewell Wallis are exclusively partnering with an SME business based in Leeds who are looking for their next Financial Controller. This is an interesting business with a unique culture who have always been known for their acquisitive nature which comes from their entrepreneurial and impressive MD.

They have recently appointed a new CFO who is currently looking at some significant and positive changes in the business and certainly future acquisitions. Therefore this is a fantastic opportunity for a highly dynamic and progressive individual to really gain all around exposure in a fast paced, SME environment.

Reporting to the CFO, your duties will include the following:-

-Implementing robust financial controls throughout the business, looking at all current procedures and processes and enhancing and improving where required
-Managing a small finance function, holding regular one to ones, assessing key development areas
-Balance sheets reviews
-Inter-company reconciliations
-Monthly reporting for the Group entities
-Cash flow forecasting and working capital management
-Year-end statutory accounts
-VAT compliance
-Produce and consolidate the monthly management accounts across the Group
-Identify potential acquisitions alongside the CFO & MD

Whilst this role would suit someone with a technical background within financial control, it will certainly have a commercial aspect to the position given the size of the company as you will naturally have exposure to any areas you want.

Our client is looking for someone to start as soon as possible.

You need to be a qualified accountant who is used to working in a busy environment.
For further information please contact Lucy Campbell.

Sewell Wallis acts as an employment agency for permanent recruitment and an employment business for the supply of temporary workers. As part of our recruitment process, we will retain your CV for a period of one year to enable us to consider you for future roles. After this period your CV will be deleted.
