Based in Leeds, with a nationwide workforce of engineers, Help-Link is the UK's largest independent installer of domestic heating boilers and their exceptional track record of growth attracted substantial Private Equity investment, but in 2014 the business was significantly affected by the loss of a major contract and a substantial reduction in governmental subsidies to the sector.

Since then, a newly appointed management team has overseen a dramatic improvement in company performance and in August this year the business was acquired by Homeserve PLC, a FTSE 250 business providing a range of water, heating, electrical assistance and repair products to over 7 million customers worldwide.

Moving forward, Help-Link will seek to leverage Homeserve's customer base to more than double its number of annual installations.
The current CFO is to leave the business in early summer 2018 and Help-Link seeks to appoint an exceptional candidate to fill the vacancy created and help take the business forward on its next stage of growth.

To be considered for this outstanding opportunity you must be a fully qualified accountant with significant senior financial management experience. Ideally you will be a Finance Director with exposure to both group and stand-alone company structures, preferably in a customer focussed sector. Experience of a field based service industry would be advantageous.

In addition to functional management and technical financial expertise, the successful candidate will be able to clearly demonstrate:

• Strong commercial experience, sound judgement and the ability to Business Partner the CEO and advise the board both strategically and operationally
• Direct experience of a high growth environment and the associated challenges around cost control and margin management
• Outstanding communication and leadership skills; adept at building collaborative cross functional relationships and helping senior management fully understand the levers and drivers of the business
• Extensive stakeholder management skills
• Energy, drive, enthusiasm and resilience; able to lead and implement cultural and business change

Help-link is about to embark on a journey of growth and development with support and investment from a highly successful parent; the role of CFO represents an exceptional opportunity for a high calibre finance professional to develop their career.

Direct applications will not be included in this process. Only CV's submitted via our consultants, Axon Moore, will be considered for this role.
