Financial Controller

Reference: 265


North Shields, Tyne & Wear
£30,000 — £35,000

Take control of a small Finance team, and your career.

If you’re looking for autonomy and responsibility, then this job could be for you.

If you want to combine that ownership with working as part of a business management team and being responsible for driving changes, this could be ideal.

You’ll be supported by a consultant Finance Director who will mentor you and help you to understand the way this successful business operates if you don’t already have a knowledge of the construction and contracting sector.

The business is at the forefront of its sector within construction but now needs to develop its financial recording and reporting systems to ensure that the management team can make decisions, confident that they are using accurate financial information.

You’ll have the freedom to improve financial reporting by designing and implementing data collection, control, and processing procedures that delegate responsibility as well as fostering accountability.

You’ll need to engage people throughout the business from the Managing Director, senior management and site staff, to help them to understand the importance of accurate timely financial information. The business is already doing well but with your input, you’ll both make further progress.

You’re likely to have completed the AAT qualification or you may consider yourself as “qualified by experience”. You may have gained experience as part of a larger team and now be ready for your next challenge.

Over time, your role and responsibilities will increase as the business continues to expand. The only limiting factor will be your ability to grow.

The external accountant will be your immediate report as he reports to the main Board and external funding providers. He will be looking for you to produce monthly management accounts using Sage. Whilst time recording, expenses, and travel costs will be under your control, payroll is processed by the external accountant and his team. Being within the construction sector, the operation of CIS is part of everyday life. These are functions that in the fullness of time could be brought in-house under your direct control.
