Unique Opportunity in Financial Control - Property Development

Triangle, Clifton - Bristol Flexible Hours Possible £50k/£60k pa (more for exceptional candidate)

Our client is a successful, private, 30 year old property development company. Entrepreneurially owned and led, focused on development, investment and long-term strategic land deals - they have an outstanding realisation record. A substantive national player with four offices, being both liquid and profitable they are also well capitalised with a significant £multi-million asset base across the wider company and its special purpose vehicles. On the back of another excellent year they have decided to recruit a proactive FC to create a platform for further continued growth.

The scope is particularly interesting: identifying, selecting and installing new accounting software, managing a very small team, reporting to the FD and MD and producing management information and accounts, cash flow forecasts, VAT returns and statutory accounts. Then when you have a grasp of the business and understand its drivers, you will then get under the figures ... interpret and own them to get involved in the finance-raising piece with the banks, the project-costing and the funds-flow/business forecasts, etc.

This is the chance to join a small intimate team, to work with the owners and be part of something special. No sectorial experience is needed but a good brain and a disciplined ethos is. You are probably a graduate qualified accountant, may be a returning mum or want a lifestyle change from the corporate landscape, you are a presentable professional, a self-starter who gets it right first time, doesn't see it a 24/7 commitment, but can handle 'spikes' when a deal is to be done. You probably have had a successful commercial career post-profession and are driven by interest as much as income. You seek a quality of working life in nice offices with nice people in a dynamic exciting environment. My client is just that.
