Financial Controller - Up to £65,000pa
Are you a Financial Controller candidate from a multi-site hospitality/restaurant sector, with a highly commercial approach and looking for a new, interesting challenge?
Being mentored by a highly experienced and engaging Director of Finance, you will be responsible for managing the day-to-day running of the Finance Department, coaching and mentoring a small team, as well as offering support to the FD and driving a number of projects.
You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills as well as a background of reviewing and driving systems and process improvements.
Experience within a multi-site hospitality or restaurant business is a distinct advantage.
This role will become a key point of contact for other stakeholders and departments within the business, as well as external contacts. Therefore, the ability to effectively communicate financial information to non-finance individuals is essential.
Whilst being involved at a senior level, you will also oversee the day-to-day accounting team and as with any business of this size/type, you will need a pragmatic and ‘hands-on’ approach when required.
Like many in this sector, the organisation is currently going through a challenging phase, however they are very well managed and positioned to navigate this and emerge strongly. This role will be a key part of that journey and a ‘can-do’ attitude is essential.
With a number of systems improvements in the plans, this opportunity will suit a ‘tech savvy’ individual.
