As such, the business is seeking to appoint a commercially astute and technically competent finance lead to manage a team of 6-8 through continued success and growth.

The role reports into the Group CFO, who is looking for somebody who can get straight to work in the company and lead them in the right direction. Naturally, this is a highly strategic role that requires someone experienced in the world of FP&A, or on the growth trajectory to do so.

You will be involved in leading and growing the finance function to create a team of skilled and highly passionate staff.

The chosen candidate will be ACA Big 4/CIMA qualified with significant PQE within the Business Services space. You will be a highly commercial individual who has the ambition to succeed within a successful organisation.

Qualifications/Experience Required:

  • ACA/CIMA Qualified with significant PQE
  • Extensive experience within the Business Services space
  • Operating as a Senior Manager / Head of FP&A within a similar organization (FTSE/plc experience in a prerequisite)
  • Prior team management of c.3-5 qualified individuals
  • Business partnering and corporate FP&A reporting experience


Communicate stands for excellence, entrepreneurialism and delivery. 

Our aim is simple: to source and place the best candidates within timeframes which surpass those of other recruitment businesses. With 32% of placements made this year being at FTSE 100 companies, we feel we are living up to our aspirations. 

Specialising in the placement of permanent and interim candidates for many of the world’s best companies, Communicate has earned an excellent reputation for providing fast and effective recruitment on a retained or contingent basis, without ever compromising quality. Indeed, despite the market average for finding new opportunities through word-of-mouth being just 18%*, this year, 67% of the placements made so far have been agency network, referred or headhunted candidates. 

In addition, we are thought leaders, regularly appearing in national, regional and trade publications. 

We are also market leaders. Our pioneering product – the Communicate Contingent Retainer – guarantees we fill vacancies within six weeks or refund all payments, in full, immediately. This means positions are filled with exceptional candidates at four times the speed of the industry standard and clients are not exposed to the 20% risk of paying for a service they do not receive, as is typical with most of our competitors’ retained assignments. 

*Survey data collected from conversations with our leading clients in 2012 on sourcing candidates.
