Head of Management Accounts
Date posted: 11/11/2021
Duration: 5 - 6 months
Salary: £350 - £395 per day
A great opportunity has arisen with one of our Healthcare clients for a Head of Management Accounts to join the team while they go through a period of transformation.
Responsible for leading the team on management reporting and the engagement with the business, this is a crucial role in financial reporting, guidance, advice and, ultimately, helping the organisation to attain its key short, medium and long term objectives. Working closely with the Director of Finance, the post is responsible for the management and performance of the management accounting function, making sure that it can achieve its objectives and that systems and processes are fit for purpose, and that the team are trained and equipped to deliver the necessary support and service.
You should be a qualified accountant, or equivalent, with a strong post qualification experience in a finance management capacity. You will need to demonstrate not only the ability to interact with the business at senior levels, but also the willingness to roll-up your sleeves and work closely with the team in more detailed and technical capacity at times. With that in mind, strong Excel skills are important and experience of Power BI would be helpful as well. Good commercial awareness will be viewed positively. Owing to the nature of the organisation and the range of people you’ll be liaising with, you need to have first rate communication skills and the ability to manage and develop teams.
This is a great chance to lead and develop a good team, whilst building on your own experience and working for a well known organisation.
