Head of Finance - FMCG Industry

Salary: £65,000 to £75,000 (negotiable for right applicant)

The One Group are seeking an experienced finance professional with a background within the FMCG or manufacturing industry. Candidates will offer a blend of operational and commercial experience which has been developed within large FMCG businesses, ideally those who deal with the major retailers for a multi-site operation.

Applicants must be comfortable in communicating financial information to non-finance stakeholders from everyone on the shop floor, production managers, sales and marketing teams through to board members. An understanding of the challengers within operational finance in production/manufacturing process will be balanced against those faced by the commercial teams. The successful applicant will be expected to help the company maximise profits by controlling costs and maximising margins.

The Head of Finance will oversee the financial performance of four sites, reporting into the Finance Director, with two direct reports. The sites are a mix of healthy and profitable sites and those which need a little TLC to help grow and you'll be responsible for driving the growth. You must be happy to have oversight of the detail whilst also being comfortable in sitting back and helping drive strategy, by being able to see the bigger picture.

A comprehensive package including car allowance and bonus will be afforded to the successful individual. With a concentration of sites in South Lincolnshire and a further site in South Cambridgeshire, applicants must be comfortable and capable of travelling with the role. An ideal location for applicants to be living would be South Lincolnshire (Spalding, Bourne, The Deepings, Stamford) or in and around Peterborough.
