My client within the manufacturing sector, situated in Derbyshire is looking to recruit an experienced and hands-on Interim Financial Controller with good operational experience.

This will be a very hands on role with some support staff but they are junior and not qualified

The key priorities are:

  • The monthly management accounts need to be taken in hand so that they are ready within the first week and they are reliable
  • There needs to be a budget review for the current year and a realistic reforecast for the rest of the year
  • Both of the above need underpinning with reliable cashflow forecasts for the rest of the year and a rolling 13 week forecast which is rolled forward on a weekly basis
  • They need to get underneath the current trading performance to ensure that the costing assumptions used when work is bid are realistic and being delivered in practice
  • The following two years need reasonable forecasts which will include expansion to a new unit with realistic CAPEX and trading impact assumptions

  • Get to grips with MI
  • Building the information bridge with the MRP
  • Work alongside the Head of Operations to deliver cost of sale targets in labour and materials
  • Analyse the current year budget and regularly update
  • Build the longer term model including the investment element with new premises and equipment
  • Financial modeling
  • Producing MI and Management Accounts

  • Manufacturing sector experience is preferable
  • Qualified accountant or part qualified with extensive experience
  • Capacity to influence and implement change
  • An excellent team player with strong interpersonal skills
  • The credibility and gravitas to influence.
  • Ability to handle pressure and critical decision making
