Brief Overview:
Forsyth Barnes is currently engaged in a search for a Group Financial Controller / Finance Director for a rapidly growing Private Equity backed group. This will role provide support to the Group CFO and be responsible for the management of a large finance function.  
The role is technically focused in its nature with a mixture of financial reporting, process improvements, policy review, budgeting, forecasting, restructuring and cash flow management. However, you will not be locked in a back office and will be expected to be a very business / commercially focused finance professional. You will work closely with the CFO on a number of ad hoc projects including a buy and build acquisition plan and group wide systems implementation project.  
The role covers all aspect of financial management in a Private Equity backed business and despite the organisation having a Chief Financial Officer you will be given the autonomy to effectively act as a number 1 in finance, as well as further developing your skill-set by having an experienced mentor in the business.  
Required Skills/Experience:  
The ideal candidate for the role will likely be a Qualified Accountant with an extensive background in a Top 10 accountancy practice. A corporate finance background is preferred but an audit background will be considered. You will then have moved into industry and will have operated at least at Financial Controller level in a sizeable organisation. The most important aspect to the business is the careful balance between the ability to think strategically but also “roll up your sleeves” and be hands on in an accounting function.  
Extensive M&A experience, having led a systems implementation and Private Equity experience are highly desirable attributes.
