A quick message to recruiters
As much as we love the recruiters out there, and by gosh I bet you “have some great candidates to send” our way… This one isn’t for you.
Right now, we want to find our own new addition. It just makes it feel like we’ve really put the effort in… Know what we mean? More fulfilling if you will, if we do it ourselves. It’s not you, it’s us. When and if we do decide to go out to recruiters, we already have several relationships with agencies in place. If you’re not already one of them, then we don’t need you, sorry.
We are looking for a great Finance Manager that will analyse everyday financial activities and subsequently provide advice and guidance to our management team on future financial plans. The goal is to enable the company’s leaders to make sound business decisions and meet the company’s objectives.
This role will develop and monitor departmental budgets and track client profitability from inbound marketing to CRM implementation. Working alongside the operations team and other managers to establish the company’s future budgets whilst tracking and analysing all business expenses to make sure we are on target. You will regularly prepare financial reports where needed for quarterly updates, bi-annual and annual budgets, scheduling expenditures, analysing variances and initiating corrective actions.
