The Group Finance and Commercial Director role is a newly created role, which will form part of the Group leadership team.
In addition to supporting the key Finance stakeholders in the business with remit for the development of more efficient processes, business systems and reporting, a key objective of this role will be to be develop the Finance Business Partner focus across the Group with far greater concentration on commercial and value-added activity.

Despite its recent acquisition our client has retained a very agile and entrepreneurial culture and nurturing spirit. It is still relatively early in its business maturity with significant development potential ahead.
As such we are looking for candidates who present a strong fit alignment this ambitious and dynamic, agile business. We are open to considering applications from more experienced Finance Directors but are equally keen to welcome applications from development candidates.
The business, as a subsidiary of a large Group has the benefit of accessing lots of support when required, although with benefit in equal measures of presenting the opportunity to work autonomously.
