Are you looking for a role that sees you building and leading a dynamic Commercial Finance team? Do you want to be able to influence senior leaders regarding a number of key commercial and operational factors? If so, then read on!

Based in Leeds, you will be the Head of Commercial Finance (GBP70-80k salary depending on experience) reporting to the UK Managing Director with a dotted line to Global CFO.

Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

- Full ownership of all revenue reporting, forecasting and budgeting activities

- Providing guidance to the UK Sales Director on margin and profitability by product line and region

- Providing insights and commentary for UK sales team

- Assisting with new product development and pricing strategy

- Implementing robust processes to allow for further expansion into European markets

You should be in a similar role currently working for a product- or brand-related business. Candidates coming from other commercial environments (retail, gaming, ecommerce etc) will also be considered.

Ideally you will be a qualified accountant (any CCAB recognised qualification) with 5+ years of experience of which 1 or 2 will have been in a similar role. You will need to be able to demonstrate that you can work in an entrepreneurial and dynamic environment where innovation is at the forefront of what much the company does. You must then be able to show your commercial, operational and strategic impact from your current, or very recent, role. You should have excellent IT skills (ideally Excel and modelling) and be comfortable dealing with C-Suite leaders.

The company is a dynamic and innovative consumer business working at the forefront of its field. It embraces challenge and change with vigour and rigour in its reporting and commercial processes.

For such a commercial and influential role the successful candidate will be rewarded with a salary of between GBP70 and 80k, and there are additional benefits.
