Birmingham
Ref: JI7978

The Opportunity:

Reporting to the Group CFO, this is an exciting opportunity for the right person to join an ambitious, fast-growing private equity-backed business operating in multi-site healthcare. You will head a 10-strong finance team that will grow in line with further acquisitions as the business continues its very ambitious “buy and build” growth strategy. The ability to build, develop and lead a high performing team that can deliver to challenging timescales is essential.

The Role:

Fundamental responsibilities are timely financial reporting, financial performance improvement, treasury management, process and control improvement and back office integration of acquisitions.  It is vital that the Finance Director has a direct positive impact on bottom line and doesn’t merely report performance.

What you will be doing:

  • Ensuring timely and accurate production of monthly management accounts and financial KPIs, analysing and reporting on performance on a site and consolidated basis
  • Providing detailed analysis and benchmarking of P&L performance and driving improvement through the operations team, identifying revenue enhancement and cost reduction opportunities
  • Building financial controls and processes to ensure the security of assets and maximise profit performance
  • Implementation of improved financial systems and processes
  • Timely integration of newly acquired businesses’ back office functions (e.g. purchase ledger, payroll etc) and the implementation of standard controls and information flows across the group
  • Development and management of annual budget and regular re-forecasts
  • Reporting to strict timetable to private equity investors of weekly / monthly MI as required
  • Production of annual financial statements and tax returns, liaising closely with the auditors

About you:

  • A fully qualified accountant with extensive experience of leading a finance team in a busy multi-site business
  • Demonstrable experience of building and developing teams and improving the quality and timeliness of financial reporting
  • Demonstrable experience of leading profit performance improvement, largely through cost reduction and control
  • Track record in implementing new financial systems and processes
  • Appropriate experience in a healthcare environment or private equity backed environment would be an advantage
  • Personal qualities must include enthusiasm, adaptability, tenacity, self-starter and an absolute commitment to achieve objectives and meet deadlines in a demanding environment.
