    Group Financial Controller | Private Equity-backed wholesale retail business | East Sussex

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting exclusively on behalf of a rapidly-expanding wholesale retailer based in East Sussex- a rare opportunity in this location. Following significant Private Equity investment, the business has experienced rapid organic growth. And is now focusing upon a programme of acquisitions of smaller competitors.
    The role is a newly-created position and the successful candidate will be mentored by a hugely experienced CFO and Non-Exec Directors with phenomenal track records. In short, this is a perfect position for a candidate looking to make the step up to Finance Director within an 18-month window.

    Company culture is entrepreneurial and fast-moving, but also hugely supportive with a great social scene. Staff retention is subsequently excellent.

    The role:

    Reporting into the CFO, you will manage both the commercial finance function, transactional finance sub-team and also own the production of the P&L and Management Accounts (supported by the team). You will also take responsibility for the annual audit, and have a solid understanding of VAT and Corp Tax within a mid-large sized business setting.

    The focus of the role will be 65% commercial. Candidates should therefore have a genuine passion for FP&A and Commercial Analysis.

    What we need to see (essential):

    · ACA/ACCA/CIMA qualified
    · Recent experience of leading finance teams (min 3 people +)
    · Good balance of stat and commercial accounting knowledge (and practical hands-on experience)

    What we'd like to see (non-essential):

    · Experience of working in a private equity-backed business would be helpful. But is non-essential.

    Salary: £75-82,000 + bonus

    Please forward an up-to-date CV to be considered for interview.
