About The Role

This is a genuinely exciting opportunity to join a business who are doubling in size due to a merger and will continue to grow throughout 2017 and beyond through acquisitions and organic growth. You will interact with the senior business heads along with the Managing Director in integrating the two businesses and driving the overall business forward in its growth. This is a “hands on” position and you will lead a small finance team in; maintaining management accounts, running payroll, managing monthly fees and producing statutory accounts. You will also produce budgets and forecasts along with providing analysis to assist the company’s decision-making. This position will also oversee the IT function and will have a strong influence over the operational side of the business.

Previous experience of mergers and acquisitions is an absolute must. You will be able to demonstrate working with senior leaders in the growth of previous organisations.
