Wiggin LLP is a leading media-focused legal services business which has been through a prolonged period of sustainable, and profitable, growth. Currently the firm has over 120 lawyers and offices in London, Cheltenham and Brussels as well as five subsidiary businesses within the group. With a new and ambitious five-year strategy in place, the firm is looking to build on this successful platform by hiring its first CFO, a role which will be based predominantly in the Cheltenham office but will require regular travel to London.

The CFO will take on the overall management of a finance team with a good internal reputation and strong relationships around the rest of the business. This can be capitalised upon by the new CFO to coach and encourage staff to take the function's output and levels of interaction with the business to the next stage of development. Partner and fee earning team's levels of engagement with management reports and information could be improved with revised formats and content, requiring a strong communicator who is used to working as an internal business partner. The existing commercial finance offering is highly regarded but the work volumes continue to expand and requires more support so strong commercial acumen is a must.

This is a great opportunity for a qualified accountant with an extensive career in leadership roles within professional services to join a progressive, entrepreneurial law firm which has an ambitious plan to develop. Applicants should have a good degree of versatility in working style and be strong communicators who enjoy creating and implementing strategy. The ability to build and nurture internal and external relationships quickly with stakeholders at all levels is a must.

Totum Partners, a recruitment business, are handling this opportunity exclusively on behalf of Wiggin LLP.
