Financial Controller - Immediate start - Private Equity
A private equity firm based in the West End is looking to appoint an interim Financial Controller to manage all accounting, reporting and analysis for their corporate entities for a period of 3 to 6 months. Reporting into the CFO, this role will focus on all core company accounting, from usual month end activities to taking ownership for all financial and management accounting, Board packs and analysis and oversight of all VAT and corporate tax matters. This is a real end to end position covering absolutely everything and anything in finance and you need to be happy and comfortable rolling your sleeves up.
The CFO is also looking for someone who can help re–engineer finance processes such as the chart of accounts and monthly management accounting pack and as such anyone who has worked on projects generally related to process improvements is encouraged to apply.
The likely candidate will be a qualified accountant or equivalent with experience in an SME organisation covering both financial and management accounting. Prior experience in private equity or financial services is not necessary and the CFO is open minded to people from commerce and industry. Experience of using Sage Line 50 would also be a massive benefit.
Please only apply if you're immediately available and/or able to start this role by mid April at the absolute latest. Day rate on offer is GBP350–400 depending on experience.
