“Finance without strategy is just numbers, and strategy without finance is just dreaming.”
- E. Faber.
Are you an entrepreneurial and technically astute finance professional seeking a defining role with an established retail and ecommerce organisation? Look no further! Our client, an OMB with a 5-year strategic plan, is currently hiring a Finance Director to join their dynamic team based in Coventry. This is a crucial position that will play a pivotal role in delivering the company's strategic objectives.
About the Company:
With consistent growth over the last 8 years, our client is now entering an exciting phase of their life cycle. They have ambitious plans for the next 5 years, which include investment in systems and infrastructure, further client acquisition, introduction of new product lines, expansion of the international business, and the potential for a significant event or transaction. This presents an array of commercial opportunities for the right candidate, making this role truly defining.
About the Role:
As the Finance Director, you will sit on the main board and act as a trusted business partner to the owner/MD, as well as collaborate with peers across Marketing, HR, Trading, and Operations. While the finance function benefits from an excellent Financial Controller for day-to-day management, you will lead the Finance team and utilise financial information to support internal and external relationships. This role requires a combination of technical expertise and commercial acumen to drive the company's financial success.
What we are looking for:

  • Qualified ACA (other qualifications considered)
  • An entrepreneurial mindset, capable of identifying and seizing opportunities in a fast-paced business environment
  • ECommerce or FMCG sector experience
  • Strong financial management skills and the ability to effectively partner with various stakeholders are essential
What's on Offer:
Alongside an exceptional package and LTIPS scheme this role offers the successful candidate the technical and commercial challenge high calibre individuals crave while working with, supporting, and managing a high performing team.
If you are ready for a career-defining opportunity and possess the skills and experience we are looking for, please click on “apply” as soon as possible.
You are required to be eligible to work in the UK full time without restriction.
