Interim Finance Director #873

c. £450-475 per day

Hybrid, South West, UK

6 month FTC

Our partner is a leading development organisation. They are seeking an Interim Finance Director to offer key support during a period of change. The interim role will have some key focuses, alongside supporting in ensuring smooth running of the finance function:

  • Evaluating the skillset of the finance function; they are seeking the successful candidate to undertake a structure review, assess the skillset of the team, and work with a key member of the senior leadership team to create a new structure and ensure that it works well.
  • Review and strengthen their processes and controls. Specifically, they need support around establishing proper reporting tools, covering the production of management accounts & cashflow forecasting. These challenges have always been there, but were only brought to their attention during an audit.
  • They have implemented a new system and have been going through processes to embed it ensuring that all the finance team are using it. The current Head of Finance has gone through most of the transition, however, it is anticipated that some more work will be needed to fully embed the software.

Requirements

  • Qualified senior accounting/finance professional with experience in working through period of change within an organisation; specifically experience of reviewing & strengthening controls, processes, leading on creating reporting tools, and in systems implementation.
  • Strong influencing, negotiating skills.
  • Able to manage a varied workload.

They are seeking someone able to make a 6 month commitment. This is part-time contract, with the individual working 3-4 days/week. Due the scope of the projects, specifically, the evaluation of skillset of the finance staff, they would like someone to be in the office at least 2 days/week. They know this is a big ask and are willing to offer a higher day rate to compensate. This role is only open to candidates with the right to work in the UK without requiring sponsorship.
