A Cornish challenger brand, selling advanced communication technology and associated services to both B2B and B2C markets.

Permanent role Salary: £40,000 - £45,000 plus car allowance. Pension in line with government guidance.

This role is your chance to help shape the development of the finance function and move on to become the Finance Director in time.

The Company

  • A leading, well-established and rapidly growing communication technology provider, well-funded and extremely ambitious.
  • A relatively young business which has big plans to accelerate the growth of their brand as well as the expansion of their network in 2020 and beyond!
  • Customer centric, the business operates to the highest professional standards whilst maintaining a friendly and supportive culture.
  • The business has offices in Redruth and Liskeard and the candidate can work from either. However, the Finance and Office Manager works from the Redruth office so it will be necessary to work from there as part of the role.
  • The time is right to jump on board this rising star.

As Financial Controller, you will be responsible for the effective management of the finances of the business and put in place relevant and workable controls to maintain good corporate governance around finance.

You will work closely with the Finance Director, the Finance and Office Manager who will report to you, and other senior management to develop and implement a step change in the analysis and reporting capability of the business.

You will be responsible for developing and maintaining key supplier relationships and ensuring that those suppliers adhere to the company’s standards and where possible seek alternative suppliers to ensure the company does not have a single point of failure as it grows.

You will be taking a senior role in the business and will be expected to demonstrate the ability to grow with it.

You will have enjoyed previous hands on experience in industry and be a qualified accountant to chartered or certified level with at least 5 years post qualification experience. Ideally you will be familiar with small growing businesses and the demands and pressures of diverse shareholders.

It is likely during the course of 2020 that the company will receive significant investment and this will demand regular reporting to external stakeholders and measurement of progress against plan.

The successful candidate will have:

  • a creative, passionate and self-motivated persona
  • the ability to take up the challenge, think outside the box and implement a strategy that will help improve the efficiency of the business.
  • natural leadership skills, setting high standards along with considerable skills in analysing significant amounts of data.
  • budgeting, forecasting and cash management skills
  • experience of working in a customer centric environment

The Rewards:

As well as an opportunity to earn bonuses and receive awards of share options post 12 months of employment, there will be opportunities for personal growth and career development for the successful candidate. It’s anticipated that success in this role will lead to them becoming a Director.
