Job Description

** Newly created role ** Reporting directly to the CFO ** Practice candidates seeking a role in Industry considered ** Genuinely rare and unique - this role is different **

My client is a highly successful multinational corporation that has consistently demonstrated year-on-year growth. Much of this growth is by acquisition and as such they have created a new role entitled Acquisitions & Project Controller.

You will be supporting the CFO in driving financial projects such as M&A activities from evaluation to post-acquisition integration. Acquisition targets are typically UK based SME sized businesses. A focus will be driving the digitalisation and optimization of processes and systems and reviewing areas such as internal controls & segregation of duties.

I'd like to hear from commercially aware accounting professionals - either from within Industry or Practice, perhaps in internal audit and risk - with a solid understanding of Finance, processes, controls and systems.

What you will be doing:

  • Planning and executing the integration of acquired UK businesses in terms of overseeing all the financial activities - running and integrating them into the existing team, processes and systems

  • Evaluating, reviewing and improving business financial and related processes

  • Driving the digitalisation journey for financial processes, reporting and analytics

  • Reviewing, maintaining and updating matters such as internal controls, segregation of duties and delegation of authority levels.

This will be your next career move if you are:

  • A qualified accountant (preferably), CIMA, ACCA, ACA or equivalent although candidates deemed qualified by experience will also be considered

  • Commercially aware with a solid grounding and understanding of Finance

  • Interested in process optimisation with a desire to be a solution focussed change agent

  • Have a collaborative and cross functional approach

  • Possess strong IT skills including Excel & PowerPoint. Any experience with ERP systems and Power BI is beneficial but not essential

  • Can work on own initiative (no staff supervision required)

  • Willing to travel to acquired site on occasion

  • In, or recently in, Practice and seeking an industry move.

What's on offer:

  • Competitive salary up to £50,000

  • 25 days holiday, rising to 28, plus bank holidays

  • Pension match

  • Private healthcare

  • Free on-site parking

  • Opportunities for professional growth and development through ongoing training schemes

  • Other benefits such as discounted shopping etc.

This is a genuinely rare and unique position that does not come around often.

Register your interest by applying today or call Ashley 01926 290 290 to discuss this opportunity further, always private and in complete confidence.
