Listed International Services Business – Central Belt
Our client is a market leading services and distribution company, based in the Central Belt. The group operates internationally via multiple divisions, each of which is based in the UK.
We are seeking a Group level chartered accountant who will be a direct report of the Chief Executive and Finance Director and who will work broadly across the group as well as with the board and management team. The key elements of the role are as follows:
- Head of Internal Audit – Lead internal assurance programme and development of assurance framework
- Risk Management – Co-ordinate risk management processes and monitor risk management controls through assurance programme
- Finance and Corporate Development – provide financial support to/deputise for the Group Finance Director and assist with strategic development of the Manufacturing Segment
- Project assignments – including corporate transactions (acquisitions & disposals)
Company Secretary – acting as Company Secretary to the Board and other sub committees, provide advice, guidance and support to the Chairman, Board members, Chief Executive and the Executive Leadership team and act as internal contact for all legal matters
The role is clearly a collection of diverse roles and it is unlikely that any candidate would be able to show current experience of each element in their entirety. As a result, our client is happy to consider candidates who don’t necessarily have the current experience of each area but who have the aptitude to develop these skills in the future.
This opportunity is for a senior finance candidate who would like to develop a long-term career within one of Scotland’s best known companies, where the power base and hence the career opportunities at group level remain within Scotland.
