Harvey John Accountancy Recruitment


£65000 - £72000 per annum

I am working exclusively with my client, a reputable organisation based near Coulsdon, for the recruitment of a Head of Finance.

Reporting to the Managing Director, this is a truly unique opportunity to work within the finance department of a stable and established company.

Working from 9-5, and on a permanent basis, this role entails:

  • Developing business procedures and policies & overseeing all financial controls
  • Overseeing, supervising/ managing the entire finance team (8 people) across various sub-sectors: Billing, corporate accounting, management accounting and Revenue
  • Balance Sheet Reconciliations
  • Financial Analysis
  • Revenue Recognition
  • Preparation of Budgets & Forecasts

Rather than focussing on strategy, this role will be centred around- not only overseeing the operational finance team/ getting the best out of them- but also being responsible for the implementation & improvement of financial system and controls.

The ideal candidate WILL:

  • Be CIMA, ACA or ACCA qualified
  • Be comfortable with overseeing a team of 6-8 people, with demonstrable experience of doing so
  • Have a proven track record of implementing processes and controls (within a finance function)
  • Possess an excellent knowledge of all round accounting principles, which has not just been gained through studies but through substantial experience too

In return, the successful candidate will receive:

  • A very competitive salary
  • 25 days' holiday
  • The rare opportunity to work within a company that's been trading for 50 years!
  • Parking (some on-site but also lots on local side-roads too)

If this sounds like you, then please apply immediately as my client is looking to interview right away for the right person!
