Reporting directly to the Finance Director, the Financial Controller is a highly varied role, supporting the production of monthly management accounts for all entities across the group, overseeing and reviewing existing processes and procedures as well as managing a small transactional finance team.

The Financial Controller is crucial to the forward-thinking strategies of the business, as they seek to add-value in the day-to-day controls and procedures as well as assist in the development of KPI's and guiding board members on future business opportunities.
