 A Little Bit About The Company

Our client is a privately run business with a huge focus on building long-term, sustainable, high-quality businesses that operate throughout economic cycles. They are taking new investment from the current owner and embarking on a number of JV's. They will be growing quickly in the coming years across diversified industries including FMCG, Manufacturing, Financial Services and Property. 
This will create huge opportunities but also increase the reporting requirements across the organisation. The owners are keen to build a best-in-class, forward focused commercially astute finance team. The new JV partners will be a mix of private equity and family office investments who will also require high quality, timely reporting. This is a critical hire that will lift the capabilities of the finance function and free up the CFO to focus on growth opportunities.

The organisation is looking to develop their reporting capability and build a finance function that doesn't just report but guides and influences the business.
