Head of Group Reporting
Our client is a leading international industrial Group with revenues in excess of £1.65bn and extensive operations internationally with a particular focus on the US, Europe and Australia.
Reporting to the Group CFO, the Head of Group Reporting requires both strong technical and commercial experience and will play a pivotal role in managing significant business transformation.
Candidates should have a proven track record in accounting excellence, including assessing complex accounting rules and supporting pragmatic implementation programmes. They should have a track record of managing multiple business relationships across a global matrix and be able to handle the ambiguity that arises in a complex, diverse and geographically widespread organisation. With full responsibility for the integrity and quality of the accounting for the business, both internally and externally the successful candidate will be accountable for ensuring processes and systems are optimised to ensure accounting information is compiled in an accurate and insightful manner. They should have a strong technical background and an excellent knowledge of IFRS and US GAAP.
They will also play a crucial role in promoting a collaborative culture in which Finance delivers a first class service to support the business achieve its goals. The role will therefore have genuine Main Board exposure as well as working closely with regional Managing Directors and broader functional management.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a complex and high quality business, offering a broad range of responsibilities and lead to candidates acquiring the full range of skills required for a first Finance Director appointment.
