We are seeking a commercially orientated financial controller to work closely with the business Finance Director to help in both guiding finance and contributing to driving the business forward. The Financial Controller will ensure that strong controls and KPI’s are in place to enhance visibility and commercial insight and ultimately enhance the visibility and management of the business.
