Finance Director - Independent Communications Agency
5 days left
Wonderful opportunity to join a high growth, profitable, owner managed communications agency as the commercial FD, with a remit to integrate finance into the fabric of the business and prepare it for sale.
The business, with operations in 6 countries, has been in operation for more than 15 years and retains a number of high profile clients, which generate revenue approaching £30m.
Reporting the CEO, the FD will be a key member of the management team, helping to drive top line growth while ensuring that the bottom line keeps pace.
Day to day you will be responsible for the smooth running of the global financials and the finance team (8 people), delivering an outstanding service to the business covering accounting, finance, forecasting, strategic planning, assessment of margins on specific projects and clients, legal and contract analysis and negotiations.
However it is on the commercial side where we require new, alternative insight, helping to maximise client profitability. We are looking for an FD to lead the business at all levels, drawing on strong commercial and financial expertise to support internal teams and external resources in generating even better margins whilst maintaining outstanding client service levels.
Applications are invited from qualified accountants who must have experience of running the finance function in a creative, ideally B to B, business. This could either be private or the autonomously run division of a corporate.
The key attributes are the presence, sensitivity, interpersonal and communication skills required to introduce higher levels of financial management into various large, ambitious projects that the business already profitably undertakes.
You will need to be hands on, a team player, capable of getting involved in the detail whilst assisting the board with the overall strategic direction of the business.
This is an outstanding opportunity for a commercial, motivated FD to really make a financial and operational difference to what is already a highly successful international media business, with the added incentive of an exit process to be conducted in the short to medium term.
