My client is a privately owned international Group with business interests within Financial Services (regulated), Manufacturing, Sales / Distribution and Construction.
Due to continued growth and anticipated M&A Activity, they have engaged FRS on a retained basis to assist with the appointment of a CFO.
The role will share its time between Handforth (Near Manchester Airport) and Tamworth, with scope for home working too.
Reporting to the Chairman of this highly EBITDA generative business and working as part of the main Board, you will be responsible for setting and driving the strategy of this business primarily through organic growth, acquisition and new business ventures.
You will also shape and lead a capable finance team in the delivery of cutting edge and commercially relevant financial data, as well as being the main point of contact for external stakeholders.
This is a newly created position for the Group and as such candidates can be expected to be involved in a complete review of the groups Systems, Process, Controls and KPI”s to ensure scaled growth is achievable.
The candidate will be joining this growing organisation at a pivotal stage of their long term plan, and also to lead an high profile sale / exit process and to financially partake in any value added.
The ideal candidate will be formally qualified with strong PQE, and a proven track record of working within a senior finance position.
This is a highly strategic role and will partner the Chairman with the strategic and financial Planning for the Group, and also lead on M&A Activity which is planned across the next 5 years (both Acquisitions and Disposals).
Prior experience of working within a regulated business is ideal but not essential, due to the diverse nature of the business portfolio.
Whilst a key a lead position within the group, the chairman is seeking a individual with a hands-on approach and that is willing to get involved in the various business across the group.
My client, a self made individual with entrepreneurial flair, this role is ideally suited to a professional wanting to work within a fast paced and agile group.
In return, a highly competitive basic salary and package based on experience and value add will be offered.
