Due to internal restructure, FRS have been enlisted to assist in the recruitment of a full time, permanent Finance Manager to join the business based Nr Atherstone, Warwickshire.

(The position includes opportunity for hybrid working – from the office and working from home)

Reporting into the CFO based within another location, this role has sole responsibility for the leadership and management of the site finance team.

The ideal candidate will be working towards formal qualification if not already qualified (ACA / ACCA / CIMA), with previous experience gained in a similar Finance Manager / Management Accounting Position.

This position is the lead finance person on site, therefore the candidate will be required to deliver the above activities with limited supervision / guidance.

Experience gained leading and motivating a small finance team is a massive advantage.
Prior experience gained within manufacturing or construction sectors is desirable, however not essential.

In return, a competitive basic salary of up to £50,000 coupled with bonus and excellent benefits await.

Due to the size and ambition of the wider group, this position is ideal to both those wanting a steady or highly progressive career opportunity.
