The Business

The Marine and Property group currently owns and manages 4 marinas along the welsh coast, Cardiff , Burry Port, Port Dinorwic and Aberystwyth. They are the 5th largest marine business in the UK and the clear market leader in Wales.

Their income is generated through ;- Berthing, dredging, property services, dry stacking, boat sales, boat repairs and hard storage.

Your new role

Your new role is a newly created position for the business, reporting to the head of finance with a dotted line into the owners. As the business continues to grow they have decided they now need an experienced finance manager to take on the daily running of finance operations.

You will be working very closely with the business so it is essential you are comfortable dealing with non-finance stakeholders and getting to know the business.

This is a rare opportunity and for the right candidate the role has very strong progression prospects, which can be explained in full upon application.

What you'll need to succeed

To succeed in this role, you will ideally be a qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA) with at least 1 year PQE. Team management experience would be preferred (fine if gained in audit capacity).
