We are currently working with a market leading PE backed retail organisation to identify a CFO to join the Board as part of a succession planning exercise. Due to the sensitive nature of the mandate we are inviting applications from interested candidates with whom we will be able to share further information under NDA.  

Applicants must be proven Finance Directors or CFOs, possess a background in the multi-site retail sector, ideally having held senior finance roles in a food/grocery retail environment (preferably one of the large supermarket operators) and have transitioned into a mid-market PE backed organisation. The business is highly entrepreneurial and will require a first class CFO to help lead a significant transaction within the next 12 to 18 months whilst supporting the CEO through a period of continued growth. It will be a fast paced, demanding and hands on role where ambition and results are part of the fabric of the organisation. 

This a truly rare opportunity to join a highly successful business which continues to outperform the wider market as a result of its uniquely dominant position. In return the successful candidate can expect a very generous salary and to be included in a genuine and exciting wealth creation scheme.
