Pure are pleased to be partnered exclusively with this hugely successful organisation to appoint an Assistant Financial Controller. This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, qualified individual to gain vast exposure in this highly commercial role and work closely with the finance lead within this multi-million pound business.  

You will assist the Financial Controller with the oversight of two busy and varied finance departments. Working with an experienced and capable wider team you will recognise the importance of strong controls and accurate financial reporting. However, you will also be passionate about understanding the profitability drivers within the businesses and using this knowledge to proactively oversee weekly and daily operational figures to drive efficiency and profitability within both businesses. 

Skills and attributes required:

  • ACA/CIMA/ACCA qualified
  • Financial background is preferred, ideally with audit or a head office function
  • Commercial/operational accounting experience is preferable but would also suit a strong financial reporting accountant who is keen to move into a more operational role
  • Inquisitive person who wants to investigate all areas of the business to understand profitability drivers. Uses this knowledge to present information in a sensible way in order to drive remedial action
  • Target driven, prepared to take final responsibility for reporting deadlines in all areas and self-motivated to finalise reporting improvements within a reasonable timescale as agreed with the Financial Controller
  • High attention to detail – understands that figures must be presented to a high degree of accuracy at all times
  • Emotionally intelligent – can quickly develop relationships within two finance departments and with department managers across two separate businesses
