When it comes to recruitment in this sector, being great with numbers simply isn’t good enough. You need candidates who are as invested in building business partnerships and identifying future problems and opportunities, as they are reviewing spreadsheets. And that’s where our 20+ years of finance and accounting experience quickly adds more value.

Drawing on our extensive global network we’ll identify, evaluate and interview candidates that understand the importance of being able to translate complicated maths into simple English. And are as comfortable playing a key role within a team as they are dealing with numbers on a daily basis. We’ll also only ever recommend candidates we believe will be a great cultural and commercial fit for your business, which is why you can count on us to work closely with your HR teams at every stage.

Here are just a few reasons why we’re trusted around the globe to add value in this sector:

  • We have 20+ years of specialised sector experience, with extensive knowledge within telecoms, healthcare, utilities, social housing and FMCG.
  • Our proven interview process will quickly separate those who simply have a head for numbers, with those that have the skills and tenacity to put you ahead with them too. 
  • Our extensive talent network ensures we’re able to provide quality interim candidates you can rely on to help solve any financial headaches while we search for a permanent solution.
  • Our tenacious approach ensures we’re constantly seeking out passive talent – particularly handy in a sector often faced with a scarcity of immediately available high calibre candidates.
  • We have successfully identified, headhunted and placed leading finance and accounting talent in several countries across UK, Europe, APAC and North America.

Are you a Finance Director with a background in engineering and manufacturing? Do you have experience working in a multi-national/matrix structure? Would you like to take on a new position with career growth potential?

Our client in South Germany needs your skills.

They are a well-established engineering company, headquartered in the UK. Due to a change in the group structure, they are now looking for a Finance Director to lead the team at their main EU site in Germany.

As an experienced Finance Director, you'll already understand the detail of this role. In summary, you'll be managing the operational day-to-day financial transactions, KPIs, cash flow planning and forecasting through monthly reports and budgets that can be presented to the senior stakeholders including the MD, Sales Director, and Manufacturing Director. Senior management have also identified potential high-performing individuals in the finance team who they would like you to develop and mentor. Treasury accounting and related aspects will be covered at Group level so this is very much an operational Finance Director role.

The company currently also has a four-person shared service team, which supports other EU countries. Next year, this will fall under your responsibility, giving you scope to liaise with the other group companies across Europe.

You will be degree educated in business administration, accounting or (financial) controlling and an experienced Financial Controller/Finance Director. You will have relevant finance management experience gained within a European/global matrix manufacturing and engineering organisation. Your experience will include drawing up balance sheets in HGB and IFRS and SAP FI/CO. Understanding of German GAAP useful. Strong knowledge of MS Office applications including Excel, Power BI.

As for you, our client envisages you will be a German national with excellent English language skills. You'll be a confident presenter, as part of your role will be to deliver financial reports to the UK head office senior team. Initially, you'll need to be based from the German site full-time, but the role can become a hybrid with some days working from home.

In addition to the salary, our client is also offering a bonus, company car, and hybrid working - our client will assist with accommodation allowance for an apartment for the days when you are on site or alternatively our client will assist with your relocation to the region if you currently live outside the commuting zone.

As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1140931

£Very Competitive + Bonus + Benefits

RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT

£Very Competitive Benefits Commission/Bonus


Nr Pershore, Worcestershire


What's your mental picture when you think of a Recruitment Consultant?

You'll probably think of a power-dressing, sales beast with an expensive watch and loud voice who uses phrases like 'Work hard, play hard' and 'Go hard or go home'.

If you fancy a career in recruitment based on that picture, then you're not for us. Sorry, but we need someone very different.

Why?

Because we're the type of recruitment agency that uses the word 'professional' in its purest sense. During the past thirty-five years, we've built our business by giving our customers a high-quality, professional service. It's a simple but effective policy as they keep coming back to us for their recruitment requirements.

We now need to expand our team and want to invest in someone like you to become a successful and professional recruitment consultant. And we prefer the word 'invest' than 'train' because, like all good investments, we're in it for the long term and know that we have to allow time for our investment to mature.

Our first investment will be to develop you for your future career in recruitment. This includes our own in-house and online learning courses to support you plus external recruitment coaching and training with some of the UK's best recruitment trainers.

While you're learning the theory through these highly structured courses, we will give you practical experience by placing you alongside an experienced recruitment consultant. There's no substitute for practical learning and having that mentor to guide you through the recruitment process is a crucial part of your development.

And we know all of that learning takes time, so we have realistic expectations that you will focus your first three to six months on education, not billing. Our experience tells us that the billing takes care of itself in the future if we get the learning part right.

As for your background, we expect you to be degree qualified in a business or technical discipline and have a desire to work in a sales-based role. Like all sales roles, your personality will dictate your success and having natural confidence with the ability to communicate clearly and maturely with people will be critical to your career.

With much of our training being in-house via local training providers or via webinar, you will need to live within a commutable distance of our offices near Worcester, so possible locations could include Worcester, Cheltenham, Pershore, Gloucester, Warwick, Stratford, Kidderminster, Droitwich or Stourbridge, Hereford, Ledbury, Evesham, Malvern, Redditch, Alcester, Bromsgrove, Stourport.

Sind Finanzkontrolleur/in und haben Erfahrung in den Bereichen Engineering und Fertigung? Haben Sie Erfahrung mit der Arbeit in einer multinationalen/Matrix-Struktur? Möchten Sie eine neue Stelle mit Aufstiegschancen antreten?

Unser Kunde in Süddeutschland braucht Ihre Fähigkeiten.

Es handelt sich um ein gut etabliertes Maschinenbauunternehmen mit Hauptsitz im Vereinigten Königreich. Aufgrund einer Änderung in der Konzernstruktur sucht das Unternehmen nun einen Finanzcontroller, der das kleine Team an seinem wichtigsten EU-Standort in Deutschland leitet.

Als erfahrener Finanzcontroller wissen Sie bereits, worauf es bei dieser Aufgabe ankommt. Kurz gesagt werden Sie sich um die täglichen Finanztransaktionen, KPIs, das Cashflow-Planung und die Prognosen kümmern, indem Sie monatliche Berichte und Budgets erstellen, die den leitenden Interessengruppen, einschließlich des Geschäftsführers, des Vertriebsleiters und des Produktionsleiters, vorgelegt werden können. Die Geschäftsleitung hat außerdem potenzielle Leistungsträger im Finanzteam ausgemacht, die Sie fördern und betreuen sollen.

Das Unternehmen verfügt derzeit auch über ein vierköpfiges Shared-Service-Team, das andere EU-Länder unterstützt. Im nächsten Jahr wird dies in Ihren Zuständigkeitsbereich fallen, was Ihnen die Möglichkeit gibt, mit den anderen Unternehmen der Gruppe in ganz Europa zusammenzuarbeiten.

Da diese Position letztendlich auch die Möglichkeit bietet, zum Finanzdirektor aufzusteigen, sucht unser Kunde einen Finanzcontroller, der auf der Führungsebene des Unternehmens arbeiten möchte.

Sie verfügen über eine abgeschlossene Ausbildung in Betriebswirtschaft, Rechnungswesen oder (Finanz-)Controlling. Sie verfügen über einschlägige Erfahrungen im Finanzmanagement, die Sie in einem europäischen/globalen Fertigungs- und Maschinenbauunternehmen gesammelt haben. Sie haben Erfahrung in der Erstellung von Bilanzen nach HGB und IFRS sowie in SAP FI/CO. Kenntnisse der deutschen GAAP sind nützlich. Gute Kenntnisse der MS Office-Anwendungen, einschließlich Excel und Power BI.

Unser Kunde erwartet von Ihnen, dass Sie deutscher Staatsbürger sind und über ausgezeichnete Englischkenntnisse verfügen. Sie sind ein selbstbewusster Präsentator, da ein Teil Ihrer Aufgabe darin besteht, dem Führungsteam der britischen Zentrale Finanzberichte vorzulegen. Anfänglich müssen Sie in Vollzeit am deutschen Standort arbeiten, aber die Rolle kann sich zu einer Mischform entwickeln, bei der Sie einige Tage von zu Hause aus arbeiten.

Zusätzlich zum Gehalt bietet unser Kunde einen Bonus, einen Firmenwagen und unterstützt Sie bei Ihrem Umzug in die Region, wenn Sie derzeit außerhalb der Pendlerzone wohnen.

Finance Manager (Part-Time 3-4 days)

“Exceptional Part Time Opportunity for Qualified Financial and Management Accountant with accounting and finance experience.”

£50-60000 Base (pro-rata) + Bonus + Benefits – Hybrid Working

Gloucester

Commutable from Cheltenham, Worcester, Gloucester, Malvern, Evesham, Tewkesbury, Ledbury, Cirencester, Stroud, Ross on Wye, Monmouth, Hereford, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Swindon

As an experienced finance professional, have you ever wanted to create a finance department from scratch? Do things your way? Make your mark on a business? Use a world-class model to ensure the finance team is an integral part of a business?
Our client is a highly successful LLP (Limited Liability Partnership) with this rare opportunity.

You’ll have already noticed that this role is advertised as a part-time position, and they’re happy to structure it around your preferences. So, if you want to fit around school hours or work 3-4 full days per week, they’re open to discussing that with you.

For a little background, our client is an LLP that provides consultancy services using a project-based model. As such, you will need to show experience of having worked within a commercial, rather than public sector, environment. 

Following a restructure, they have recently outsourced their transactional accounting but wish to appoint an experienced financial accountant with management accounting experience to join their team as Finance Manager. This newly created role will give them greater visibility and transparency of their financial position at both an operational and strategic level.

Coupled with that, they need a Finance Manager to work with the Partners and Commercial Director to translate the financial data into meaningful information for budgeting and forecasting. They use Xero, and a crucial part of your role will be in training/coaching the staff to use the system effectively.

As such, you’ll need a confident personality who is happy to challenge ideas and practices in the company’s best interests.

Alongside those higher-level activities, you will also need to manage the day-to-day transactional work. As an experienced Finance Manager, you will already understand what those entail, and we can cover those details when we speak.

Ideally you will be of graduate calibre and fully qualified CIMA, ACCA, ACA, FCCA, or equivalent experience as both a financial accountant and a management accountant.

This finance management experience must have been gained within a blue chip multinational matrix environment.
