The Company Overview:

Butler Rose have partnered exclusively with a thriving SME business on the outskirts of Preston who are looking to appoint an experienced Head of Finance. Established for 50+ years, my client boasts an excellent reputation in the niche sector in which they operate.

Your new role as Head of Finance:

Reporting directly to the Managing Director, you will manage a small team of 3 junior finance staff and be responsible for their training and development.

To be considered, you will be fully qualified (CIMA/ACCA/ACA) and proven in a number 1 finance role, used to working in a fast paced and ever changing environment. You will have strong commercial acumen with the ability to challenge and influence in a constructive and engaging manner at a senior level. Strong leadership skills are essential and you will be systems orientated with the ability to identify and implement improvements.

Your Reward & The Package On Offer:

This is an all encompassing role and a unique opportunity as it provides a good balance of technical accounting and commercial responsibilities. You will receive a competitive salary and package inclusive of a performance and profit related bonus scheme, company pension, private healthcare, a generous annual leave entitlement and flexibility around working hours if required.
