  • Doing what:

    Commercial Operations Director | Luxury Furniture | Milton Keynes

    Harmonic Operations are proud to be recruiting the next Commercial Operations Director on an exclusive basis for one of the United Kingdom's fastest-growing privately owned companies.

    Headquartered in London with regional offices and a state-of-the-art modern warehouse and distribution centre, this company are going places and are on track to hit £20 million t/o in their first 5 years of trading. The business has weathered the impact of Covid better than 90% of their competitors due a highly diverse international client base and have won several national and international awards.

    Company culture is highly professional and values-driven with a real focus on customer service and product quality. While the continued growth levels lend the business a real 'start-up' feel (albeit with an experienced management team)- this isn't the correct role for somebody who enjoys sleepy showrooms and quiet warehouses.

    Role & responsibilities:
    Reporting into the Founder, you act as the 'connector' between Sales and Marketing and the Finance and Operations, Manufacturing and Distribution function.

    You will be ultimately responsible for ensuring that products are manufactured to the highest standard, procured in the best prices and in the right amounts and then distributed and installed to the highest standards. While also ensuring that communication with other departments is effective and free-flowing.

    The role suits an individual who is highly commercial, but who is also a bit of a polymath and problem solver. The current state of play in the business is very positive (you aren't inheriting any fires to put out!), but the Founder also understands that there remains room for improvement, particularly in anticipation of the push towards £25-30 million t/o.

    What we need to see (Essential):

    * Recent experience as either; Commercial Director, COO or Managing Director within a business-to-business wholesale retailer.
    * Demonstrable experience of overseeing 'best in class' supply chain and distribution teams.
    * Experience of managing effective and efficient stock management and inventory processes involving inventories of £1 million+.
    * Experience of being the 'bridge' between Sales and Marketing, Finance and the more functional warehousing, manufacturing and distribution.
    * A functional (i.e. non-technical) understanding of what good looks like in relation to ERP systems.
    * Solid understanding of the P&L and sales forecasts etc.
    * Experience of overseeing high quality sales support, project management and customer services
    * Great influencing skills and a high level of emotional intelligence

    What we'd like to see (Bonus):

    * Current experience in a commercial furniture company
    * Experience of overseeing at least part of a manufacturing and assembly supply chain, including supporting commercial procurement decisions.
    * Some E-commerce / b2c exposure would be of real benefit.

    Location: Milton Keynes (min 3 days per week), with other days at London or Manchester offices.

    Salary: £85-100,000 + performance related bonus.

  • Doing what:

    Financial Director | Oxfordshire | Consultancy Business | £90k-£100,000



    Harmonic Finance are proud to recruit the next Financial Director for a very successful consultancy business based in Oxfordshire.



    The company

    The business is seeking a hands-on Financial Director to help support the continued rapid growth of their business. They are led by a thriving entrepreneur and deliver business-to-business services both independently (60% of revenue) and as Franchisor (40% of revenue). They've also developed a hugely scalable and highly profitable commercial model.



    The organisation has attained a series of quality standards and accreditations which have given them a competitive advantage in tendering processes and have put their environmental and sustainability credentials front and centre.



    The role

    This is a high-impact Financial Director role and will suit a candidate who has spent a recent part of their career within an owner-managed business. You will be acting as #2 to the CEO/Founder and will have direct top-table input on commercial and financial strategy.



    You will be a highly visible figure within the business. The role requires a 'player-coach': a candidate with the gravitas and emotional intelligence to lead and motivate their team and to compliment the CEO. Having an aptitude to lead and to build rapport with colleagues is an absolute must as you will be leading a Financial Controller, Management Accountant and transactional finance and payroll team.



    The company is in great shape but is scaling at a pace and although the balance sheet is healthy, there are some clear areas of improvement which the CEO would like to be addressed within the first year. Most importantly, this includes the lack of commercial insight and improved financial controls. The role would therefore suit a Head of Finance or Finance Director who has a passion for FP&A and who has strong hands-on skills with excel modelling. A passion for finance systems improvement and business partnering with operational colleagues would also be very helpful.



    Strategy

    Including a recent major acquisition, turnover is expected to increase very rapidly to circa £27 million for the next financial year. The company have developed a Target Operating Model which balances continued organic growth with further plans for acquisitions in the medium-term. Core objective include reaching £50 million turnover within 5 years and building a nationally-recognized brand.



    Culture

    Company culture is wonderfully open: very welcoming, lots of laughter and a focus upon mutual respect and displaying the company values. The CEO is seeking a Financial Director who will challenge his ideas and suggest new ones versus a "yes person", so an ability to think creatively and to communicate at a high level is a must.



    Essential Skills:

    * Fully-qualified ACA, ACCA or CIMA
    * At least 2 years experience at Finance Director or Head of Finance Level within a business with a turnover in excess of £10 million.
    * Experience of working within an owner-managed, entrepreneur-led business within the past 5 years.
    * Balanced aptitude for both financial and commercial accounting.
    * Good Excel skills (particularly of the purposes of forecasting and building simple models)
    * Strong leadership and management skills.
    * Process improvement experience.
    * Values-driven outlook. Our client are extremely community-minded.



    Bonus skills and experience:

    * Experience of working within a franchise structure would be helpful.
    * M&A and business integration experience.
    * Experience with Netsuite and/or Xero would be of benefit.
    * Previous background in Audit or Transactional Services



    Salary: £90,000-£100,000



    Interview process: Initial interviews with Harmonic Founder, Charlie Walker, followed by 2x interviews with the CEO/Founder and a further shareholder. Final stage is likely to be a short presentation task.

    You'll be organising the team, finalising processes, hiring for spare roles and also involved with the financial structure of the business. The role offers progression and training to develop into an FD, having full oversight of the business from a finance perspective.
