A Head of Financial Reporting is sought by one of the UK's fastest growing technology infrastructure providers. Over the last 10 years, the business has grown rapidly from a start-up to become what is now a significant player in the UK market with an equity valuation in excess of £400m. The most recent shareholder investment led to a large structural change, whereby they are now part of a global business - this has brought significant capital to the platform and enabled a realisation of the management team's ongoing growth plans as well as a sharp focus on financial reporting and consolidation into wider group numbers. This is an exciting time to join the business and play a key role in this critical function required to meet demanding group requirements and execution of wider business plans.

The Head of Financial Reporting is a newly created role and will report into the CFO. The role's key responsibilities will be to lead the production of the Group's financial reporting and ensure that the processes & controls by which the group operates are, and will remain, robust as the business grows. Specific duties will include:

  • Prepare timely and accurate monthly, quarterly & annual group consolidated and individual entity financial statements
  • Drive and manage the relationships with both the external auditors and the internal team
  • Ensure all statutory returns (e.g. tax, VAT etc) are completed and filed on time
  • Ensure all transactions are properly recorded from AP / AR / GL through to project cost items and mergers & acquisitions
  • Lead and develop a team of 6 staff; ensure they are motivated and developed according to their needs
  • Drive the automation of business processes to ensure efficiency, accuracy and a stronger internal control framework
  • Assess potential internal control weaknesses and ensure implementation of identified recommendations
  • Integrate any new operating businesses or other acquisitions into the Group structure in a technically correct and efficient manner

Take the lead in a range of ad hoc projects that will come up as the business grows.

Candidates for the post of Head of Financial Reporting will be fully qualified accountants who have both gained experience in a Big 4 firm and worked within a group to demonstrably meet tough consolidation and reporting timelines. Whilst possessing the operational and leadership skills to drive this group forward, you will also be technically very strong, comfortable 'rolling up your sleeves' and immersing yourself in the detail when required. This role requires flexible thinking and a dynamic, innovative approach as new business challenges arise as well as the need to constantly look for ways to move existing processes forward and ensure adherence to increasingly complex and ever-changing Financial Standards. Finally, candidates will be adept at managing internal & external stakeholders and working both accurately and with pace. Significant opportunities will exist for the successful candidate as the group continues to grow and develop.
