A rapidly growing product based business based in Harrogate are looking to recruit a Project Finance Manager to support the CFO as the company embarks on a high growth strategy over the next 5-10 years.

This is an excellent opportunity for perhaps a 2nd time mover from industry who is looking to gain exposure across an entire business and learn quickly from an experienced CFO who is looking to start handing down their knowledge and expertise to the right person.

You will need to be a proactive accountant with a real interest in systems and project work. You will be required to effectively business partner with multiple department heads and really get under the skin of the organisation to understand how it operates.

You duties will include the following and will quickly develop as the business progresses:

-Support the CFO with an ERP implementation project, acting as the financial lead in this area, offering solutions and ideas to the CFO and the wider business when required
-Identifying a potential new budgeting system with the CFO and then helping to review and set system and user requirements
-Building detailed financial models and preparing financial analysis work for the CFO around new ideas and processes to implement across the business
-KPI reporting
-Take control around product costing, business partnering closely with the production department to ensure margins are correct and what can be improved to maximise profitability
- Support the CFO in regards to business plans and any acquisition integration work
-Budgeting and forecasting across new projects
-Act as the key finance lead for all non finance departments across the business and offer sound commercial/financial advice at all times
-Review the current consolidation system and work closely with the CFO and FC to understand and review the current system/processes in place and what needs to change so that it delivers what is required

This is unique opportunity and does not require someone that ticks all these boxes. What it does require is someone ambitious and able to challenge senior stakeholders effectively to support with business growth. You must have an interest in the above areas and be someone who is not afraid to go and find the answer if you don't already know it.
