We’re seeking a Finance Director with a unique set of skills to develop our small but critical Finance function. From a pure finance perspective you’ll be responsible for a group of three legal entities across the US, UK and South Africa which report into an Australian parent. The business is run based on management accounts incorporating business units across all three entities and parent. Given recent legal entity changes you have a mandate to enhance the existing management reporting processes, with the potential for a GL implementation to align with parent.
In addition to your core finance responsibilities, you will work closely with the Commercial Director on pricing, the Director of Delivery in evaluating the ongoing financial performance, and HR. As a member of the executive team you will also play a leadership role across the organization, particularly regarding our strategic direction.
If you are exceptionally motivated, positive, proactive, pragmatic, and deeply collaborative, if you care deeply about the details one minute, but canstand-back to plan strategically the next, then you’re the candidate we’re looking for. You should be able to work independently, but use your experience to judge when, how, and what needs communicating across our global teams. We are looking for someone who can be an exemplar to our young and vibrant team.
