Our client is a leading digital print and publishing business based in Canning Town, London. They are looking for a new Financial Controller (hybrid working on offer).
This is a great opportunity for a commercially focussed accountant to develop a key role within the business, recently acquired by a private equity investor. The business has a turnover of around £16m and is profitable. There are currently around 70 staff working in the company, although due to seasonality this figure can be much higher in Spring. Part of the finance function is currently outsourced, and in addition there are two bookkeeping staff within the business. The intention is to bring the finance function inhouse, and also to integrate this with the sales administration and credit control team. The FC will report to a part-time CFO, who will also provide a level of support and guidance during the initial period.
The ideal candidate will have experience in SME environments, in a sole charge role and with experience of invoice discounting, Sage, and systems development.
