Job Description

Finance Director required by a global technology provider to manage the UK's commercial finance operations.

Your new company
This leading technology provider is part of a large global group with operations covering a wide range of specialist areas; providing vital services to support the wellbeing of the world's population.

Your new role
Following an internal promotion, a unique and challenging opportunity has arisen for a qualified, professional Finance Director to lead the financial and commercial operations for the UK business.
As part of the UK leadership team, you will provide support to all business units, driving strategic and commercial performance to exceed financial objectives and improve organisational efficiencies.
This opportunity very much focused on the commercial and FP&A function for the UK business, as the technical and statutory reporting is handled by a separate team, so a confident business partner with a strong track record in driving performance through sales, customer and pricing. You will lead the planning, forecasting and budgeting for the UK region. Technical knowledge will be a given but experience of working with a US-owned business would be preferable.
You will lead a small team and be expected to develop and mentor their progression to aid the future performance of the finance function.

What you'll need to succeed
You will be a confident, professional and engaging finance leader who has operated at senior level within a large complex business. You will have a track record of commercial, financial management, staff supervision and a desire to drive performance of a business through the provision of value-add analysis and strategic guidance.

What you'll get in return
The successful candidate will be rewarded with a challenging and varied, commercially-focused opportunity with a leading global business. You will have future opportunities for development across the business, both locally and globally, and a competitive salary is on offer for the successful candidate.
